As far as I am aware all Air Ambulances are now on encrypted tetra like the other emergency services so you will not hear them unless they are making routine calls on standard airband frequencies which if its like here in Essex is rare to hear.

Air ambulances do show up on FlighRadar24 very often & they use a fair amount of in the open normal air traffic comms depending upon where they are. As some areas are controlled more heavily by ATC than others. For example they have recently altered the area covered here in Norwich by ATC to cover a wider area & that has brought a lot more traffic through Norwich ATC.
In areas covered by a local airport. Aircraft, including those aircraft flying Visual Flight Rules, which is in effect non ATC controlled space will need to contact the local airport to give a few details.

Just to add, a large part of the comms from an air ambulance is not to ATC, or other aircraft & air ambulances by their nature are not high altitude aircraft, so distance travelled by the RF from it is lower & radios needed to be used are different much of the time. But you will hear a air ambulance as often as you will hear a light aircraft. It is just there are probably dozens of light aircraft for each air ambulance.

I know London's air ambulance use tetra to talk to base at Royal London hospital and LAS control. Only time I hear them is when they are talking to Heathrow radar on 125.625.

If the pilot talks it will be on air band..
If the Paramedic talks on the radio it will be on Airwave TETRA..

I wonder if Airwave give them a discount on costs given that they are all charities? Would be interesting to know.
I reserve the right to ignore people who have made no attempt to the read the manual, and expect others to do it for them.

I always thought it was strange they had really expensive radio systems and are run as a charity.

This has something to do with the data protection act, sensitive information needs to be passed over a secure network..
Raynet thought they had it sussed for local use, encrypted DMR, but their members got hold of all different makes of radio that use encryption that is not standard between makes..
