Hello N612UA.

I can't get the link to work that InnocuousFox provided (probably just my problem  Laugh out loud), so here's one that will give you all the radio frequencies you need for Charlottle Douglas Intl Airport..

Just type CLT into the window and you're on your way.

I'm sorry if this link is the same as the one above.

Thanks for your help the airnav link worked.

I just got a handheld radio shack scanner I hate it. Does anybody know of a good handheld scanner that can pick up air traffic. That is easy to use.

Which from Radio Shack do you have? I have the Pro-79 and it works just fine.

I have the pro-82. It is not easy to use or I just don't understand the directions to use it. It is not user friendly

Also, how far are you from the airport?

You probably wont be able to get much of anything on the ground unless you are near the airport. You might get some aircraft transmissions if they are close but the tower controllers are going to be hard to hear unless you are high up. If you want to try to get some better reception, you might also want to try getting a bigger antenna, it might help a bit.

I have a Pro-92 and im really happy with it. Multi-system trunking capability so you can listen to the newer police and fire freqs too.

I have an older PRO-51. Very easy to use, but easy is relative. I am a ham radio guy and very used to working with radio gadgetry.

Just take a few minutes to read your manual. If all the buttons and banks of channel memory are intimidating, don't worry! You only need to program into memory the few channels for your airspace. If you don't have a need for the entire memory capacity of the scanner, it will operate just the same. Have a little patience and stick with it, I guarantee that you will love this new facet of the hobby. Feel free to email me back through the system if I can help you.

Geedo: This is off topic, but I just got my ham license and I am looking for a cheap 2M rig that is easy to use, and that will hit repeaters from across town.

I missed around with it for a while at CLT the other day and got most of the chs for the airport that I found on the airnav and the other website listed above. I am happy I did not get mad and just return it the tower radioed to a delta flight about some FOD and he went around the piece on the runway because it was not completely in the way. A little bit later my friend and I saw a van go out on the runway and get the FOD. It was 3-4 in piece of rubber. I am happy I had or I would have been clueless to what the the van was out there for.


thanks for all the help.

FLIGHTSIM: I am a throwback to the old ways. All of my amateur radio interest and exploits are in CW in the HF bands. VHF is great, but I want the crackle and static of AM below 30 MHZ. That said, I'm not the greatest authority on VHF equipment. But with spring approaching here in the States, there will be many amateur club functions, conventions, flea markets happening soon. If you're licensed, you are no doubt on certain mailing lists that promote these little get togethers, and there are always wheelin and dealin going at them. If you're not in a big hurry to get one, I'd say get in touch with your local club, find out when the next "ham-vention" they're having and hook up with some of the folks there. Good luck, hope you find what you're looking for. 73.........Chuck

We just had 2 local ham fests, but neither of them had any equipment that was in my price range. There is a school club that I have access to, but its all the way across campus and only open certain hours. I guess I will keep looking... BTW, the CW and HF bands interest me too... I'm working on learning CW and getting my General.

Geedo,

I have the good ole Pro-51 as well, and can tout it's virtue as well. Had it about 10 years, and it's still kicking despite the abuse of airshows, being stuffed in the flight bag, falling on the ground numerous times, etc.


Just went to the TiCo Airshow south of here in Titusville last Sunday. Rented a 172 and flew in for it. Had the tower and ground frequencies from the AFD and took all of about 5 seconds to find out the Air Bosses freq once the show started.

One nice side note on the 51 is that, if I'm correct, it was one of the last scanners made that could pick up cell/cordless phone convo's. Apparently about a year after I got mine they passed legislation that made it illegal for scanner manufacturers to include the 900 mghz range. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, as I would like to know if that is true.

The only thing I want that this one doesn't do is pick up the trunked police/fire, but someday...

You are correct, HAVEBLUE, the 51 was the last model from Radio Shack that picked up the cell bands. It was one of the main reasons I bought that model, along with the standard capability of listening to fire/police. I had a lot of fun listening in on people. (*wink*) Then our local municipality went to the trunked system, and it was not nearly as easy to follow the action on the police bands. You could program all of the frequencies, as I'm sure you're aware, but the calls would jump around to different ones. And with analog cellular almost extinct, no action there anymore. It does all its work for me now on the aircraft band.
And I, too, have subjected my radio to nemerous drop tests and cramped storage conditions, but it keeps on ticking. I'm looking for a trunked model, but have my eye on an ICOM rig that picks up UHF in AM mode. (military)

Very cool Geedo. Daytona Beach police used to be just 3 frequencies and S.Daytona 1. Those were the days. I'm looking for trunk as well, but what I've been searching for for years is a handheld like the 51 that picks up UHF. The mid 200mghz range for military aircraft more specifically. When I got the 51 it appears I had missed the UHF handheld by less than a year, but I didn't know what I needed back than. So... if you have any luck in your searches would you let me know? Thanks and good luck.

I still have a PRO-51, too. When I worked for Radio Shack years ago, my manager informed me that indeed the 51 was the last to be able to hear cell conversations. Interestingly enough I have a PRO-2035 as well (a base model) that picks up all the military bands but does not get cell phones. It does scan the correct frequencies but the actual conversations are somehow blocked. I've A-B'd it with like antennae and everything - nada. Anyway, the handhelds can make a good backup for recieve-only communications in the air. I always have it in the flightbag with me but I've never had to use it. I have nothing to add about current scanners, though. Use AirNav for freqs and Good luck!

Mine is usually in the flight bag as well, though I'm wanting a transciever in case of an actual radio out when I'm flying. It is fun, however, to have the scanner along with when doing the $100 Hamburger at another field, sitting outside having lunch and watching the goings on whilst listening to CTAF or tower on the 51.
