Air Evac Lifeteam Units/Bases

  • Licenses for nationwide itinerant operation on 151.505 158.4 464.5 464.55
    • 151.505 and 158.400 have been used with various tones on a temporary basis when a new base is established, or an existing base is moved, until a new frequency and license is obtained.
  • A satellite tracking system in the helicopters sends a signal back to the communications center so the movement of the aircraft can be tracked at all times. Communicators are able to track an aircraft's heading, location and air speed. If an aircraft runs into a problem, communicators know where it is and what is going on. Messages between communicators and pilots are relayed over a frame relay system. When a communicator speaks to a pilot over the radio, the message is sent to computer routers located on transmission towers throughout Air Evac's service areas. The routers convert the radio waves into data bits that can be transmitted faster and more accurately over the long distance.
