A quick guide to choosing an airband radio:
N.B: Disclaimer: Listening in on aircraft frequencies is illegal; although owning a scanner is not.
Airband radios are ideal for aircraft enthusiasts, student pilots brushing-up on R/T, and clearly those with a vested interested in aircraft movements, such as operators and flying schools. They received transmissions on the UHF aircraft band.
Airband radios are divided into scanners and receivers. Scanners are more expensive, and have an extensive database of frequencies whcih are automatically scanned and heard when a transmission is made.
Receivers tend to remain on one frequency until manually changed. They may also have a good database of stored frequencies.
The more you pay, the better the radio- generally. And more expensive scanners will come with menu-driven or key-entry frequency storage and selection, and even the ability to interface with a PC. Transmissions will be clearer, and the ability to have complete control over your frequency database is a realisation.
Transceivers; These both receive and transmit. You MUST HAVE A LICENCE in order to transmit. Failure to hold a licence will result in prosecution.
