Fun with GMRS radio and FlightRadar24.

Recommended Posts

I have the local DPS channels programed into my radio to monitor and I also have an app called FlightRadar24 on my phone and sometimes I can catch a Police Helio on FR24 and hear the radio traffic on my radio.  It's pretty cool to "see" the helicopter AND hear what there doing. 

If you get bored give it a try sometime.

Unfortunately, during wildfire activities in my area I use the FlightRadar24 app while listening to CALFire Air to Ground frequencies. I can hear the command aircraft directing tankers and helicopters making their drops. Last September I sat in my front yard and watched and listened to two tankers and two helicopters  containing a fire 1 mile from me across a canyon. Due to the critical nature of the activity I can't call it fun but it was very interesting. Those pilots are amazing. They sounded very calm as they fly low and slow that close to the side of a mountain.
