Your radio is not capable of recieving air band frequencies. It will only receive 4 bands consisting of: 26 - 54 MHz; 68 - 88 MHz; 137 - 174 MHz and 380 - 512 Mhz.

The VHF airband uses the frequencies between 108 (just above commercial FM radio) and 137 MHZ (just below 2 meter Ham radio). Amplitude Modulation ("AM") is the mode that transmissions are made. The lowest 10 MHz of the band, from 108-117.95 MHz, is split into 200 narrow-band channels of 50 kHz. These are reserved for navigational aids such as VOR beacons, and precision approach systems such as ILS localizers

What are the types of ground support equipment used for aircraft?


Hello Everyone,

Generally, Ground Support Equipment is the support equipment usually found at the airport for aircraft and other terminal usages.
But some of the equipment is only used to service the aircraft for maintenance purposes

Everyone aware Ground Support Equipment means servicing and maintaining aircraft and other airport usages, Of course, correct But in-depth there are many tools and equipment involves for many factors to support and service the aircraft.

TYPES OF AIRCRAFT GROUND SUPPORT EQUIPMENT (GSE) :

Air Start Unit
Ground Power Unit
Aircraft Air Conditioning Unit
Static Frequency Converter
Electric Baggage Tractor/Apron Tractor
Load Bank AC/DC
Auxiliary Power Unit
And Many More

Here above I've mentioned the major key Ground Support Equipment which is used for Aircraft GSE Requirements.

So When you are selecting and purchasing Ground Support Equipment, Try to know the basic procedures and foundation for good Aircraft GSE.I hope I provided a short information about Ground Support Equipment used for aircraft

For More Information Air+Mak Industries.

Buzzing noise in realistic pro 62 airband scanner


Check your squelch settings.
The frequency you are trying to listen might be a "birdie", a frequency that interacts with the electronic noise in the unit. This is especially the case if the issue is only on one frequency.

GRECOM PSR-200 DESKTOP SCANNING RECEIVER WHEN SCANNING WEATHER CHANEL KEEPS COMING IN.


NOAA weather broadcasts are continuous, therefore scanning is interrupted when your receiver locks on that frequency. You need to lock out all NOAA channels

Grecom psr-200 .when scanning weather chanel comes in .what is problim.


IF you have a weather frequency programmed in as a scanning channel, it will stop on it everytime, so you need to go to 'manual' on the weather channel, and press 'lock-out' so that it isn't on during scanning. You can still manually go to that channel, but it won't stop while scanning that way. Good luck.

Why can't i listen to aircraft pilots & tower on my Uniden bearcat BC60XLT-1? Our airband frequency here is 108-137 mhz.


Your scanner does not receive frequencies between 54 and 137 MHz, and there's nothing you can do to enable reception in that block. Your only option is to purchase a scanner with air band coverage. Here are the reception ranges of the BC-60XLT-1:

29.0-29.7 MHz 10 Meter Amateur Band
29.7-50 MHz VHF Low Band
50-54 MHz 6 Meter Amateur Band
137-144 MHz Military Land Mobile
144-148 MHz 2 Meter Amateur Band
148-174 MHz VHF High Band
Above bands in 5 kHz steps
406-420 MHz Federal Government
420-450 MHz 70 cm Amateur Band
450-470 MHz UHF Standard Band
470-512 MHz UHF "T" Band
Above bands in 12.5 kHz steps

I have a uniden bearcat scanner 30 channel i would like to know if it is possable to add any software or chip to make it able to pick up aircraft frequencies ? ...


Sorry, but it's been a long time since scanners could be modified to extend or change their frequency coverage. The AIR band in your BC350C allows you to monitor commercial, private, and some military aircraft. If you want full military air coverage though, I suggest that you look at the reasonably-priced BC370CRS.

I have just bought this scanner UBC244CLT and finde that the instruction book is useless, I have been unable to get anywhere with it except to put the time on, the instructions are clear enough for that -...


You are correct regarding the frequencies used by aircraft, but unfortunately your scanner does not cover this range. The UBC244CLT covers 66-87.265, 137-173-995, and 406-512MHz. To receive the aircraft band (108-137MHz) on an economically-priced scanner you will need to purchase the BC370CRS or UBC370CRS.

I know how to get the basic channels in my scanner, I just don't know how to get the bands...it's a 30 channel 10 band Uniden BC handheld.


Bands are nothing more than frequency ranges. For example, 108 to 137 MHZ is commonly referred to as the "Aircraft Band," and you just program individual frequencies into the scanner. Some scanners have a band monitor capability, where you push a single button to search the air band, police band, etc. This is normally done by powering the scanner ON, and pressing the desired band key (on some you may need to press MANUAL or MAN before the band key).
You didn't specify the model of your scanner, and I can't give you any more detail without it (You listed your question under the BC60XLT which is a a 10-channel scanner). If this info helps, great. If not, please get back to me with the model number and I'll go into more detail for you.

Grundig g6 airband in khz and poor reception


I think having the display showing MHz for the air band would have been a better choice on Grundig's part, but it really doesn't matter that much. Its just a matter of moving the decimal point to the left three places.
As far as getting better reception on the air band, here are some tips:

1. Use an antenna.
2. Try other antennas.
3. Find a known active freq.
4. Find a freq. low of FM spurs.
5. Turn up the volume.

I own and use a G6, and get decent results with it on the airband.

Programming icr-5 for airband use only


assuming you can scan the air band from 108 - 135 what you now need to do is select your range of frequencies from the numeric memory and put them into a "prog", then you can scan the frequencies in there only, better still store them in one of the alpha numeric "banks" or "groups" and scan only those groups. the scanner itself will place active chanels into memory slots automatically for you if you want, then you only hear pre-activated chanels, this is limited though and does not give you very much scope!
