HELICOPTERS BUZZING LOWER BLUE MOUNTAINS

Hello and welcome back.... My morning was awash with the sound of Helicopters buzzing, if fact their was 2 of them. Both the same type of Helicopter.

They are McDonnell Douglas 500N type Helicopters, Rego No = VH-INY & VH-EPZ (may be more).

They are on loan by Endeavour Energy to check power lines in areas including Blue Mountains, South Coast, Sydney West, Hawkesbury (NSW to the Vic border).

These Helicopters are owned by Gunn Resources Pty Ltd according to Regosearch.com.

What makes these helicopters unique is the fact they don't have a tail rotor and sound similar to a washing machine or a strange vacuum cleaner (well, i think they do).


FREQUENCIES

Chatter between 2 pilots on 123.450Mhz

Air Clearance - 135.100













































































PLEASE, Don't forget to shout me a coffee (see link top right corner).. Any amount big or small is much appreciated and it keeps this site happening :)

SOUNDS LIKE A VACUUM CLEANER?    WHAT DO YOU THINK?

MARINE RESCUE NSW

Hello and welcome back... Might be quiet now but once the weather warms up, these guys and gals from Marine Rescue are flat out.

Volunteer Marine Rescue cover between Tweed Heads (North) to Bermagui in the South as shown below..

From their website =

Marine Rescue NSW is our State’s official volunteer marine rescue service, committed to our mission of saving lives on the water.

The State’s newest rescue service was established in July 2009 and officially took to the water on New Year’s Day in 2010, backed by our volunteers’ decades of experience in three former rescue organisations: the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard Association, Royal Volunteer Coastal Patrol and the NSW Volunteer Rescue Association marine fleet.

Unlike most emergency services, we are not a Government agency but an independent not-for-profit organisation. We receive generous support from the NSW Government and the boating community of NSW through a levy on boat licence and registration fees.

MRNSW has more than 3,000 volunteers in 45 strategically-located units on the NSW coastline and inland on the Alpine Lakes in the Snowy Mountains and the Murray River at Moama.

Our members are our greatest strength. Recognized for their marine knowledge, courage and community service, they are dedicated to helping boaters stay safe on NSW waterways.

MRNSW is a Registered Training Organisation and our members are professionally trained to national standards for their roles, both on and off the water.

Marine Rescue NSW saves lives on the water through our key services
1. Swift, coordinated 24/7 emergency response
2. The State’s only Log On and vessel tracking service for recreational boaters
3. A marine radio safety net, monitoring traffic along the NSW coastline around the clock
4. Boating safety education, including boat and jet ski licence and marine radio courses for local boaters
