Aviation Radio - The Basics
The Civil Aviation aircraft band is split into two segments. Air to Air and Air to Ground communications are in the 118.00-136.975MHz range and are divided into channels each 8.33KHz wide since 2018. Before this, the divisions were wider, meaning in some busier areas, the available channels were full. Changing the entire system, world wide was done and now more frequencies are available.
The downside to this is that radio equipment produced for the old system does not have the ability to tune the correct frequencies and each country require aviators to only use new equipment. While the aircraft fitted radios got changed as a priority, many pilots want a backup that can be kept for emergencies of convenience.
The other part of the band, from 108.00MHz to 117.95MHz is used for navigation aids, in particular the VOR system where ground based beacons broadcast their location, and suitably equipped radios can receive these signals and display them in a compass style.
Not all radios feature the navigation capability - our FTA-550AA is designed to run on ordinary AA cells, so ideal for emergency use and it features both VOR and ILS capability.
The FTA-250L does not feature the navigation aids and comes with rechargeable batteries for general communications use.
