Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbish Bought one of these, but couldn`t pick up any aircraft radio so drove to airport. Picked up automated broadcast but the analouge tuner was so twitchy that it could hardly ever catch a signal once you found one. Placed it in the car boot box, wishing I`d bought a better one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Managed to pick up local airport radio from a few miles away. Does work but could do with a better antenna. I ended up making one for mine and it improved reception.

Would you be able to listen to Military Aircraft at an airshow? Thanks.

Asked by: Lorna
The military usually uses digitally encrypted channels to stop being listened to, however in an airshow, this may not be the case, please check with the organisers what channels they intend to use.
