Southern RI and SE CT Aviation and Marine
General aviation frequencies, Flight Watch, Flight Service, Life Star Medevac helicopter, Air-to Air chat frequencies. Marine channel 16 and Coast Guard / safety related marine channels.
Status: Running on a temporary antenna at low height. New permanent antenna at higher height is coming soon. This will improve reception.
Receiver is located in Hopkinton, RI. Reception of taxiing aircraft at the airports and some vessels (particularly in Narragansett Bay) may not be be possible due to my location. Airborne aircraft, Coast Guard sectors/stations, and vessels at sea are usually no problem. CTAF (Common Traffic Advisory Frequencies) are used by most small airports that dont have a control tower. Pilots coordinate their approaches and departures amongst themselves on these radio frequencies. There's only about a half dozen CTAF frequencies so each one is assigned to multiple airports. Therefore you may occasionally hear airborne aircraft near other airports some distance away. Broadcastify policies prevent me from carrying military air and Coast Guard frequencies.
Alpha text is available to show you what frequencies you are hearing. This is available when using certain apps such as Scanner Radio.
