Best brand scanner would be Uniden .. unless you can get your hands on a old military valve radio , they are a little hard to carry around tho winkyy.gif

I agree with Ian about the valve radio, best quality signals you can get - but disagree about Uniden. I've had 2 unidens over the years and not overly impressed with them.

I ended up getting GME RX 1300 RX1300 and very impressed with it. Does a lot more than just VHF which was part of the reason I got it, goes down to the HF Range and up into the UHF range. I'm about 20 Km from the transmitter site for NZPM and made an aerial that I've mounted on the roof and can listen the ATIS, Tower and ground. then unplug and take it with me, it's a nice size too only slightly bigger than a smartphone, the only drawback it it has no belt clip so sits in a pocket or have to hold it.
Takeoff's are optional. Landings are mandatory.

Im sure they will have the radio gear installed in later years , in fact security ... maybe they can look at plane spotters as extra security , not that we need it here in the NZ unless some kiddie with a laser pointer .. , but in my mind its not a bad idea ! SECURITY & SAFETY spotters badge and jacket , hey maybe world wide . smile.gif

Thanks Paul , I ll keep that unit in mind , if not ask you for the latest , guess the old UNIDEN has DEN its day smile.gif

Hey, just adding a few more:

  • Woodbourne Ground: 118.1
  • Woodbourne ATIS: 126.05

Ohakea Control can be heard perfectly from pretty much everywhere in Wanganui.
