Does anyone have a list of AM radio station freqs throughout the country that I can tune in to the ADF while kickin' back on 2-3 hour legs? I've seen a list somewhere, but didn't know if one is posted on the internet. thanks...

I recall seeing a list of all the clear channel radio stations on one of the pilot boards some time ago. I may have it bookmarked back home and will check when I get off vacation.

I'll regret the day they come and rip out the ADFs; I won't be able to listen to Rush, Boortz, Hannity, and good 'ol bluegrass or oldies anymore. Oh well, go hi-tech and break out the MP3 player! I'll have to subscribe to Rush 24/7 then...

Well, I fly a pretty new CRJ jet, and it still has an ADF in it. They still train us to fly NDB approaches, and the radio is part of the same unit that has the com and nav radios we normally use. Personally, I don't think they will be going away soon. They couldn't take out just the ADF without purchasing a whole new radio, and I don't think that's going to happen. I think they'lle be around for awhile.

I got my list from www.pilotshirts.com

I use it crossing the country all the time and works great.

Besides AM stations, dial your VOR to 108.00 and pull the squelch and you can usually pick up some good tunes. Unless of course you are in south texas, and then you can only enjoy the tunes if you understand spanish. Most cities have a 107.8 or 107.9 which is what you will pick up.

You guys are good!

That was the exact list I was looking for! My next question was going to be a good place to get fitted pilot shirts because I'm tired of looking like a fat ass! Thanks Diesel...

Check the back of your Accu-Kwik guide for am radio stations around the country. While the list is not very large, it is very good.

But, hey....shouldn't you be doing something better with your time than listening to some country tunes or news while airborne? Does not sound like a very good idea.

:eek:

So I suppose playing my gameboy is out of the question??


Maybe we should turn off all the radios....those are pretty distracting too.

I agree with Safteycheck...you should be doing something better with your time on those long legs.....like catching up on your reading, making sure the Captain gets his/her nap, maintaining your investments or networking with the other members of the flight crew....

Seriously, if everything is under control, a few tunes can't do any harm...

Has anyone tried Sony's new portable XM radio receiver while flying? It should theoretically work right?

I am talking about the one that looks sort of like a radar detector and you can take it in the car, hook it up to your home stereo, etc.

Now if that worked, flying long haul would be a ton of fun. Crystal clear, 100 radio stations. =) Well worth the $10 monthly fee.

Vik,

If they do work I might actually have a reason to buy one of those.

Come on we need someone that is wiling to try it.

I had an old fossil of a captain once who woke up and told me to quit reading.....

I don't see why the XM wouldn't work. It works via satellites so it should work. I hope someone here can report on it. Those portable Sony devices have been selling out at the Frys Electronics here in SoCal.

I knew a guy who bought a portable DVD player so he could watch movies while in cruise.

PS Engineering has a unit called "The Muse". It goes inline of your headphone jack and allows you to pipe anything in via an 1/8" jack. It'll even soft mute for radio calls. I just bring my CD collection and...er......um...well...I just heard that it works great.

the muse works pretty well.... but here is a better (cheaper) trick.

go down to your local avioncs shop with a 6-10ft mini stereo cord (male ends on both sides), have them cut one of the plugs off and install a mic plug instead.
....plug one end into cd/mp3/dvd player, and the other into the observer mic jack, and viola! it only costs a couple of bucks and both you and the captain can enjoy tunes. a side benefit is that you can pump it out over the p.a. for boarding. did i mention i love german speed metal? -sr.:D

AM Station List

Here's a listing of a fair number of am radio stations in the lower 48 ... http://home.earthlink.net/~brockcj

click on the opening picture ... then on the left side, click on "miscellaneous aviation sites" ... or something like that ... then on the right side, click on the AM radio station list.

Fly safe, enjoy the stations!
