Hill AFB 2009 Airshow Report

Byron on the SoCalMilcom filed the following report for last weekend's airshow at Hill AFB:

"The Thunderbirds Preformed at Hill AFB Utah last weekend. There seemed to be some new frequencies used. The following frequencies were heard:

141.075 MHz for diamond formation during show and during departure for cross
country Air to Air back to Nellis. (AM)

235.250 MHz Solo aircraft during show (AM)

363.500 MHz was also heard weakly. Maybe announcer?"

As followers of this blog know 141.075 MHz was originally posted here at the beginning of the season. As for the 363.500 MHz frequency, it is a Utah Test and Training Range (UTTR) freq: Range Control (Clover): R-6402A/B, DPG, R-6405, R-6406A/B, R-6407, Sevier MOA, Gandy MOA, Gandy ATCAA, AR-642E, AR-659. It is definitely not a TBird assignment.

Remember if you have a report from one of the airshows, we can use your help. Remember, even if we have a freq you heard, pass it along as that verifies and keeps our list up-to-date. Please pass your report along to the email address above and you can remain anonymous if you want or need to.

If you need frequencies remember the 2009 MT Airshow Guide has been posted to the net at
