AIRMET Radio Voice BroadcastsHello All, AIRMET was a voice broadcast, in the LF band, of meteorological actuals and forecasts in existence between 1946-1950. I have no idea who organised, or ran, it (I used to listen to it!). The wavelength was, I think, around 1224 metres which was easily receivable on the majority of domestic radio receivers sold in UK at the time. There was considerable uproar when it was shut down (letters to [I]The Times[/I], debates in Parliament, etc), but no mention of the actual frequency it used. Does anybody know which precise frequency was used? I am intrigued about receiver R1080 (Sect Ref 10A/8291) which was, according to one account, built for single frequency reception of “meteorological broadcasts”! Which broadcasts? The only reason I can think of why a specific, single-frequency, receiver was officially built was so that it could only receive AIRMET, and NOT "ITMA", "Much Binding in the Marsh", or "Workers Playtime", etc, etc, was to stop such broadcasts being listened to whilst 'on duty'!!

AIRMET Radio Voice BroadcastsBruce, Hi, Mni tks yr input. The national, and international, 'in-fighting' over the Copenhagen Broadcasting Frequency Plan is still with us!! AIRMET frequency was too close to Lahti, in Finland, and AIRMET was being broadcast with a lot of "thrutch". Who gave in to who in return for what (at Copenhagen) is probably PhD Thesis material!!! What intrigued me is the fact that Air Ministry commissioned, designed, built, and issued, a radio receiver (R1080 Receiver (Sect Ref 10A/8291)) that would only work on one frequency - that of AIRMET! Somebody (or, even, somebodies) should have been in Secure Accommodation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HTH Peter Davies ....Read More.Resmoroh on 21st August 2016 11:32:43
