Never listened to the Aviation band? This band lets you listen to nearby pilots, air traffic controllers and ground crew. When traveling, airline schedule changes and problems can be perplexing and annoying. Listening to control towers can provide endless entertainment and informative tidbits of information. It is as simple as telling the Skywave to scan for an active frequency until you find some action. The best one is usually the approach frequency used for planes that are landing and you’ll know if you’ve found the correct one when you hear it. You can also search the web for ‘air traffic control radio Seattle’ for example, to find information and to learn more about aviation radio. If you live next to a smaller airport you could ask a local pilot for the frequency or look up ‘common traffic advisory frequency’ plus the airport name. English is the standard language used in aviation at all airports worldwide.
