I'm curious if anyone will have an issue bringing a scanner with them to the airshow. I'm going on Sunday, so I'm interested in hearing any reports of issues on Saturday. The only reason why I'm uneasy about bringing a scanner is because of how they have one of the answers to their FAQ's. First airshow i've been to. Thanks!

Try programing 376.025 for the F22 Raptor for the airshow.
I have heard them use this frequency a couple of times. It is an fighter jet if you haven't seen it.

F22 Raptor using discrete frequency

During the demo today, the Raptor ground crew mentioned a discrete frequency. Anyone know what frequency this is?

Hi,
I have been to about 20 air shows and have never had any issues using my scanner. Make sure you have a good set of headphones.
Enjoy
Thanks! That's what I figured, I just didn't know if this venue would have had an issue since they haven't hosted an airshow in a few years.

Well, they're not allowing them here. Was turned away at the gate and had to put it in the car

Hm that's weird, cause I was just watching youTube videos of the airshow cause I can't make it, unfortunately, and multiple people are seen holding some sort of scanner or AM transceiver

Mike,
Very sorry to hear that.
Did they give a reason why they are not allowed? Something to do with security or interference I guess.
I grew up in Wilkes Barre and now live in NH. I have attended airshows in ME, NH, NY, VT, and RI, gone through the security checkpoints and always have been allowed to bring in my scanner, and scanner bag.
Being able to listen to the pilots and the air boss really enhances the experience, especially when the Blue Angels or Thunderbirds are performing.

So far today, I've only seen staff/crew with radios, no spectators
