Teak Publishing Adds 2014 Air Show Guide to Their Growing e-Book Catalog
Every year, from March through November, millions of people hit the road to watch the excitement and thrills as military and civilian aero teams put their high performance aircraft through their paces to entertain the crowds and perform at air shows all over the world. Anyone who has attended one of these events will tell you it is thrilling to watch the close quarter flying of the Blue Angels delta formation or the hair-splitting maneuvers of the Thunderbird opposing solos.
While attending the show and enjoying the sights and sounds is an exciting experience that is only half the fun. You can add another whole dimension to that visual experience by monitoring the performing teams’ radio communications.
With a radio scanner in hand you will experience a whole new perspective of the show that few attendees will ever experience – pilot audio from the aircraft cockpit. While everyone else at the air show is just watching and listening to the public address system narrator, you’ll be able to hear what’s happening inside the cockpit, up in the tower and on the ground with the hundreds of players that keep these screaming, state of-the-art air machines thundering through the skies.
But you can’t tell the players without a program, and to indulge in monitoring the air show experience you need a current and well researched list of frequencies that the various performers may use during their performance.
In our new Teak Publishing Air Show Guide e-Book, former Monitoring Times Assistant Editor and Milcom columnist Larry Van Horn delivers the hundreds of frequencies you’ll need if you’re within receiving distance of any air show in 2014.
From the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds precision flight teams to the U.S. service parachute and search and rescue demonstration teams, to the many other military and civilian demo teams from the U.S. and abroad, Larry has the list of frequencies each unit uses. Now you can bring the excitement you see at the show to your ears. Listening to the nonstop action at the air show on over dozens of radio frequencies is the real fun of being there.
But wait, there’s more! Larry also tells you which scanners work best at the air shows, what features you’ll need and which models can cover the military as well as civilian frequencies used at all air shows. There is also a chapter on tips for enjoying a great day at the air show.
You will also get frequency lists for other possible frequencies in use at the air show including GMRS, Family Radio Service, DoD Intra-Squad Radio frequencies, and even Civil Air Patrol VHF/UHF frequencies and call signs. We also include an up-to-date air show Internet resource guide and the latest information from U.S. Department of Defense on the various team activities in 2014. We even have frequency listing for overseas military teams and civilian aeronautical demonstrations teams.
Finally you will get the latest schedule information for 2014 for the three major flight demonstration teams: U.S. Navy Blue Angels, U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and the Canadian Forces Snowbirds. We will also include with each show location, the latest ATC (Air Traffic Control) frequencies for each facility hosting a show, when known. This schedule information only covers the United States and Canada.
This is the 15th edition of this guide published by this author. The first 14 editions appeared each March in the pages of the former Monitoring Times magazine and were one of the most popular features in the magazine.
This edition of the Teak Publishing Air Show Guide is now the most comprehensive collection of air show information and frequencies ever published for the radio listening hobby. When the Air Force T-Birds and the Navy Blue Angels, dozens of other precision flight teams, skydiving teams and vintage aircraft crews are in the air and on the air, Larry has all the frequencies for them all in this new eBook!
Frequency updates, correction and late additions between editions of this e-Book will be posted on his Milcom Monitoring Post blog at: http://mt-milcom.blogspot.com/.
