EGBB Birmingham International Radar 118.050

Postby AndrewE » Mon May 21, 2018 3:29 pm

Not having used my SDR tuner for some time, I tried to pick up 118.050 without success - and ordered a new RTL2832.

The new tuner has now arrived and it doesn't detect anything on 118.050 either! Not only that, but an inbound aircraft this morning reported that there wasn't any reply to his call on the frequency.

Can anyone explain what's happening?

Birmingham changed to 8.33 channels on 1st May, Approach is now 123:980 (123.975 MHz)

Keep an eye on NOTAMS.

and NATS supplements

Manchester has now been postponed until November.

There will be many such changes over the next few years.
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.

Once again the NATs AIS website is out of date as the aerodrome specific page is still showing the old frequency lol even though they publish the NOTAMs

Thanks Minus1 for your reply - I've found 123.980 now.

I did look at the NATS AIS website but as Chris P reported, it's out of date.

This is ALWAYS worth keeping an eye on, as it lists military exercises & active frequencies involved.
