Scanning Air Shows

Home / Podcasts / Scanning Air Shows

One of my favorite activities is scanning air shows

Memorial Day weekend on Long Island means a few things.   First, it means remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice serving our great nation.   It is a time to reflect on those currently serving, as well as their families.  It means setting up the BBQ, catching a parade, or the Jones Beach Air Show.   In addition, this is usually the same time as Fleet Week in NYC, so we have a lot of Military service members and air craft in our area!

Going to the Air Show

I am not one for crowds.   In this podcast, I have a few important items you should take with you want to be a part of the crowd and see the air show up front and personal.

Skipping the show?

Want to catch all of the action but not be confined to a location with a bunch of people?   I have some great ways that you can watch the air show performers from outside of the central area of the action.    If you would rather stay home and in the A/C, I have some ideas for you too.


Just about any off the shelf scanner will get you monitoring the civilian performers.   If you would like to monitor the military acts, you will need to purchase a radio that will handle the MilAir spectrum.
