Picking up air communications


#1

I own a Grundig shortwave radio. How can I pick up pilots and control tower communications? How can I know which airport I am picking up?


#2

If you get the diagrams for local airports in your area, you will find the local frequencies for CTAF or Towers. Whatever frequency matches your radio will tell you what airport/center you are listening to.


#3

…and make sure that the Grundig shortwave radio also has the airbands on it @108-136mhz preferably with a frequency readout rather than a tuning knob and dial which dont tend to be that accurate.

Good listening.
