If the pilot was Bob Martin, KC5LHL, who flies the KRQE chopper, he is a longtime Abq ham radio operator, and I agree he could be an asset to any mission. I don't think he has ever taken part in ARES, but I could be mistaken. --Steve Richey, ARES

Well down here in the Southern part we really don't have that big of a problem with the media using the SAR frequency. Very rarely do we have an "eye in the sky" here. I do not have a problem with them having the frequency. I agree with Rick Goodman, that they have often helped during a mission by acting as a relay. We cannot prohibit them from monitoring the frequency and I think everyone is making a big deal of it down here because we are not used to dealing with it. I think calling the stations and complaining would just be a waste of time and solve nothing. Now if they start interfering with the normal communications of IB then yes something should be done. But has that ever happened? Why not look at the media as a possible asset to a mission?

Maybe James could get us the names, locations, and phone numbers of all theNew Mexico radio and TV stations to include the numbers of the owners andgeneral managers. As an FC I could not hesitate to call up their bosses and
complain and also report their use of the SAR frequency to the FCC.BobDACSAR-----Original Message-----From: jdw8485@AOL.com [mailto:jdw8485@AOL.com]

Sent: Sep 6, 2008 8:48 PMJust thought about this although the SAR mission has been over for a coupleof weeks. The search was in the Gila's for 12 high school students and 4adults. It made national news and we had news helicopters overhead flying
below the (TRF?). All of a sudden we get a call on state SAR frequency(155.160) which was unreadable and then we understood what they were saying,13 Tango Victor or 13 TV. Has anyone else ever had a news helicopter use
our frequency on a mission or is this common place and just the first timeI've been on a big mission?
