Listening Squawks (correct April 2019)

How it works

  1. Tune in to the radar controller’s radio frequency BEFORE selecting a listening squawk (otherwise you won’t be listening)
  2. Select the listening squawk, using ALT (Mode C) if you have it
  3. Listen out for any transmissions with your callsign or position. If both the aircraft and ATC unit are equipped with Mode S, the pilot will be issued a warning based on the aircraft’s registration/callsign. If neither the ATC unit nor the aircraft are equipped with Mode S, the pilot will be issued with a warning based on the aircraft’s position.
