    Aviation band frequencies

    Aviation band transmitters use AM. Most every other service, Police, Fire, etc, uses FM. This won't matter to anyone monitoring Aviation, only if you are transmitting. As far as receiving aviation...

    I have a multimeter, freq counter, oscope, induction meter.
