2018 LAS VEGAS HELICOPTER EXPO FLY OUT

Hello and welcome back... This Sounds Wicked

This is the full fly out of the 2018 HAI Heli-Expo giving you an amazing look at various Helicopters used in the U.S and the different sounds that each one makes.

I sometimes surprise my kids when i point out the different types of helicopters that fly over by the sounds they make, i'm not bad, can usually tell the difference between a Kawasaki BK117 (usually Careflight) and a Augusta Westland (Rescue 207 / 209)

Be sure to put video in 720p HD and a good set of Headphones / Speakers

AIRBAND LISTENING IN THE BLUE MOUNTAINS - KINGS TABLELAND

Hello and welcome back... I thought i would share this with you, from my sister site (Air Band Radio NSW)

If you are a Aviation Lover and live in the Blue Mountains, you would have noticed, listening to Airband Radio sometimes is a bit hit and miss.

Mostly because the distance between the airport and where you were trying to listen is too great, unless you have a really big outside antenna.

But, fear not, because half way up the mountains, south of Wentworth Falls is a place called 'Kings Tableland' that relay several aircraft frequencies as they fly over the mountains.


Kings Tableland Aviation Towers seen from Tablelands Rd


Put these frequencies into your radio.


FREQUENCIES

118.400 (Departures)
123.400 (Brisbane Centre)
124.550 (Radar)
128.600
133.500 (Melbourne Centre)
135.100 (Inbound Clearance)
363.800

The Radio Link from Kings Tableland then heads to Mt Edith (near Jenolan Caves)

118.500 (Melbourne Centre)
119.700
125.000
129.800

Give these frequencies a go, I know from experience, 123.400 (Brisbane Centre) and 133.500 (Melbourne Centre) work well where i live (Springwood)

Its funny because the airplanes that fly behind (south) of my house boom in on Melbourne Centre and the airplanes that fly over out the front (north), i can hear on Brisbane Centre.

If you want to visit the site (Kings Tableland), turn left after going up Bodington Hill on the Great Western Highway, this will take you on Tablelands road, follow this road for a while and on your right hand side you will find a Airservices Notice and a Service road that will take you the transmitting towers.

Observe and wonder but don't trespass.

Cheers

NEW WEBSITE - AIR-BAND RADIO NSW

Hello and welcome back... Following my last post, I decided to start a new site.

I decided to concentrate on a topic I love the most = Aviation

Air-Band NSW will cover Major Airports / Small Local Airports, Frequencies, Wallpapers, Videos, Maps, News & more.

Its a site that i can stick to one topic and make quick, informative / interesting posts and its something i love which means the passion will be there.

Take a look, I've already added some posts but in the next few weeks, i will start going into different things like terminology used, focusing on various local airfields (users, frequencies, maps), Air-Band Radios, Military Airfield used in NSW, etc, etc... Lots of ideas.
