Advisory frequency at KVUO

Advisory frequency at KVUO

Postby PaulT » Sat May 30, 2020 6:30 pm

KVUO Pearson has a Advisory frequency of 119.0. You must contact the Portland tower on this frequency prior to entering the KVUO airspace. My question is.... in the Pilotedge network Does anyone know if 119.0 advisory frequency supported. If not, then I can just treat it as a Non towered field.

Thanks in Advance

Hi Paul,

The Pearson Advisory Frequency (119.00) is not supported. It's a position that is monitored by one of the ppl in Portland Tower, but it's not the portland tower frequency. Supporting this would mean that the repeaters would carry the CTAF to all WUS clearance/tower/ground/app frequencies, which is not desireable. We're aware of the situation at VUO, but we cannot fully implement it without it becoming disruptive to all other operations within WUS. Make the calls on 119.00 as you would for any other non-towered fields and continue from there. Remain outside of Charlie airspace when deparing from VUO until you've met the requirements for entering the airspace, otherwise, you should be good to go.
