My Uniden EZ133XLT hand held scanner has arrived & I'm sitting here having my first play with it.....It seems a great little scanner & I've tuned it immediately to the first "approach" frequency to Heathrow (119.725) & am picking up dialogue. I don't want to run before I can walk, so for now, I will concentrate on that particular airport & understanding the scanner itself. I'm getting the frequencies from this link ( http://www.radios-uk.com/airfrequencies.htm ) & I notice that they are split into 5 catagories ( Approach, Radar, Tower etc )......I presume the choice of frequencies under each heading are for the best reception. I have only listened in to the first approach frequency for Heathrow & not radar, tower etc, as I don't want to confuse myself to begin with & I've realised that you have to be quick to catch the call signs, but I'm sure this comes with experience. As one of the "approach flight paths" for Heathrow practically goes over my house (Barnet), I will try & familiarise myself with that first & progress from there. I'm watching the activity on "Planefinder" as I listen in to try & match "on screen" with "scanner".......Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated........Thanks.
