I captured this frequency at Lake Washington Thursday
from a WW II B-26 (B-25?) flyover show:  124.8833.
It should be good through the weekend.
The most active during the Blue Angels:

A Listening Tip from Jeremy [KG7EDS]:
Hi LW,
I heard on the am 9 o’clock net some talk about the radio use of the blue angels.
I found that my Uniden BCT15X (analog scanner), heard them fine,
 but my Yaesu FT-60r did not, just initial static burst.
I changed, am/fm/auto, wide/narrow band, and rubber duck/external.
I am at a loss as to why regular radio did not pick it up.
I hope this helps with the investigation.
Please let me know if any new info comes out.
Thanks, Jeremy Andersen.
KG7EDS, 73.
