Airshow Scanner Frequencies
Common Air Display Frequencies

Before purchasing and using a scanner, be sure to check to see what the local laws and restrictions are. It's also a very good idea to research rules in any countries you may be planning on bringing a scanner to.

In addition to the usual frequencies at an Airshow venue, one or more additional frequencies are also usually allocated from the 'Common Air Display Frequencies' listed below. It is a good idea to have these frequencies programmed into your scanner at airshows. It's also worth including the 'NATO Common Frequencies' on your scanner at an airshow too:

Common Air Display Frequencies:
121.175, 130.675, 132.90, 130.50, 130.625, 134.55

NATO Common Frequencies:
Tower - 122.1, 257.8
Radar - 123.3, 344.0, 362.3, 385.4
