GATWICK UHF Help

Post by Beefi » 12 Oct 2013, 15:44

Hi Guys
My research continues and now I think I need some help from someone 'In the business"
With regards to my previous post and trying to find the UHF rebroadcast frequencies of ATC for major airports, I have drawn a blank for Gatwick - kind of local to me.
I understood there was a rebroadcast of the tower and ground frequencies at most airports, indeed information received confirms this but Gatwick is a mystery. According to Ofcom WTR only one frequency is licensed by NATS and that rebroadcasts the ground ATC frequency, and thats it. Looking at Manchester, NATS has licensed the frequencies that I have been supplied with on my other post. So it would appear Gatwick only rebroadcasts the ground frequency and not the tower. Is this so? If it is true why no tower rebroadcast?
I am sure someone will supply the answer very soon
Thanks for your help

Birmingham only rebroadcasts the Ground freq too.
Ground vehicles have no need to talk to airbourne aircraft, but perhaps at some airfields, the tower freq has control of runway crossings for ground vehicles.

Good point, I have heard shuttle buses and runway inspectors on the channel so perhaps you are right, there is no need to broadcast the tower frequency, everything is done on the ground channel. According to the NATS details it is a duplex frequency so makes sense.
Thanks for your input

At LBA the tower uhf is used for ground vehicles listening in for runway/ground movements and also for the crash teams. the fire appliances never use the airband frep that is allocated.
