The 2008 Vectren Dayton Air Show is underway. Rod Villari reports in with active frequencies and what he heard on Saturday:
124.900 - Air Boss This was an interesting choice since it is used
here in Cincinnati. Some of the early performers
complained that they were picking up CVG when
they were in the air. They never changed frequencies
and I did not hear any more complaints later in the
show. All of the aircraft communicated to Air Show
Control on this frequency.
Discrete frequencies are listed below:
123.150 - Aeroshell Aerobatic Team
128.475 - Collaborators, Sean Tucker
280.800 - Apache Demo Team
384.55 - F-16 Demo, Heritage Flight
123.525 - Starfighters
376.025 - Heard the F-22 Raptor on this frequency for a very few minutes.
He then indicated that he was switching to a UHF discrete
frequency and never heard any more. I thought he indicated
378.475, but did not hear any traffic on that frequency.
The F-18 did not appear to have any ground support frequency.
The Misty Blues did not appear to have any ground support either.
Their sole contact was on the Air Boss frequency.
Thanks for that report Rod, if anyone catches any other frequencies, please post a comment.
Local public safety at the show appear to being using the Montgomery County TRS talkgroup 12656 I-OP 1. I have heard a lot of heat related issues reported on that tg. Also 12688 I-OP 2 is active with some event related traffic, but not as busy.
