Hello all,

I spent some time yesterday (Saturday 3-14-08) out at the Albany Airport Observation parking lot doing some VHF-Air band logging. Here is the list of what I heard, with stations that I was able to identify by on-air transmissions. I don't usually monitor VHF-Air, so some of you may know what all of these frequencies are assigned for.

118.050 - Albany Airport Approach

118.425

120.450 - Albany Airport ATIS

120.625

121.350 - Boston Center

122.850

123.950

125.325

125.350

125.575

126.475

127.500 - Albany Airport Departure

128.325 - Boston Center

129.550

130.950

132.175

132.300

132.600

132.650

132.825 - Albany Airport Approach (Class C Airspace)

133.125

133.425

134.000

134.600

134.950 (pilot had a british accent)

135.250

135.325

135.700

135.800

One note - I had always thought that Albany Approach was primarily on 125.000, with an alternate channel of 118.050. However I did hear traffic on 132.825, and the ATIS broadcast advised Class C approach was on 132.825. How long ago did that change?

Also, if you listen in to 115.000 you can hear ALB's ATIS
I live in Halfmoon and I can always hear their ATIS, but I have to listen clostly as its muffled, but its great that it has that much coverage
