What does the communications box for the Greenville VORTAC tell us about communicating with Flight Service?


The Greenville VORTAC communications box indicates that you are able to communicate with the Gainesville Flight Service Station by transmitting on 122.1 (122.1R) on your comm radio and listening over the VORTAC frequency 109.0 on your navigation radio. In your initial transmission to Gainesville Flight Service, “Gainesville Radio,” you’ll want to indicate that you are listening over the Greenville VORTAC, 109.0.
