Great to have the show time-blocks, thanks. The F35B doesnt not appear to have any slot? Is that true, or have I not spotted it. Love to see it hover on Sunday.

Can confirm that Team Zeus was using 136.000 as noted in previous posts. Also heard radio chatter with the F18 pilot on 123.4750 during and after his display. Not sure who he was talking with exactly.

During the F22/F35 heritage flight on Saturday I heard A2A comms between the two aircraft on either 255.100 or 255.150. Sorry but I can't remember which it was.

Ramex were using: 244.650 for ground comm's
Frecce were using: 362.625
Pat' Swiss were using: 359.45
Picked up broken comm's on 141.725 AM (unid)
also had some hits on Close call one being a re broadcast of the comentary in the 400mhz range (I didn't save as was uninterested).
+ An American Airlines calling up London control FL200-300 above which is one of the furthest 'close calls' I think I've had?
Although I don't use it much..
Most of the others were on Tower freq & the afore mentioned frequencies.
Although I had 2 radios on the go (3500XLT & 396XT) I'm sure I missed loads :blush: Krilla Oluje Didn't use their usual 300.000 Am.
I had more than 50 freq's saved & only got hit on a dozen or so :unsure:
Kind regards. Stu. H

"Robin" (location EGVV), who was an ATC expert and posted lots of information on ATC matters and also on RIAT, died mid-February 2017 after a long battle with cancer. RIP.

Oh, a real shame :( I spoke with him quite regularly, especially during RIAT week, and he was a thoroughly nice bloke.

That is sad news :( Same as Chris, I also used to chat with him via PMs. He was an asset to the forum especially around RIAT time
