What are VOLMET frequencies?

What are VOLMET frequencies?

2850 – 23350 kHz (2.85 – 23.35 MHz).

Where is VOLMET frequencies?

VOLMET frequencies are published in the national AIP’s.

  • List of HF frequencies for VOLMET worldwide.
  • @ymb1 although, to be honest, we have a couple of well accepted resouce location questions (including one of mine) we probably have to decide if to make them “historical” (and this deserves a meta post)
  • What is the difference between VOLMET and ATIS?

    If we only have ATIS, how can we learn more about the weather during the flight? Your best choice would be VOLMET which is all about the weather. VOLMET stands for vol (flight) and météo (weather report) and in addition to ATIS, it provides meteorological information important for the aircraft during the flight.

    What does VOLMET stand for?

    Definition. The word VOLMET is derived from the French words “vol” (flight) and “météo” (weather). The purpose of a VOLMET broadcast is to provide weather information to aircraft in flight.

    What is the range of SSB radio?

    SSB is a very efficient method of superimposing your voice or other information on a radio wave and then the transmission of that radio wave. A well installed SSB can give performance ranges in excess of 4000 miles.

    What is AWOS vs ATIS?

    ATIS contains current, routine information to arriving and departing aircraft as well as weather reports derived from human data collection that is updated hourly or upon pertinent data changes. AWOS and ASOS are automated and provide continuous real-time weather observations.

    What is RAF VOLMET?

    VOLMET (French origin vol (flight) and météo (weather report)), or meteorological information for aircraft in flight, is a worldwide network of radio stations that broadcast TAF, SIGMET and METAR reports on shortwave frequencies, and in some countries on VHF too.

    Is ASOS or AWOS better?

    ASOS provides continuous observations necessary to generate a routine weather report (metar). They’re more sophisticated than AWOS and designed to provide the necessary information to generate weather forecasts (TAF). ASOS is composed of a standard suite of weather sensors.
