Frequencies/sites Miami to San Juan PR route
« on: March 28, 2021, 03:31:26 PM »
I’m new here so my apologies in advance if this has been asked before. I tried searching but could not find an answer.

I was wondering if anyone has an idea of what the frequency or site handoff sequence is on flights between Miami and San Juan. I’m guessing that after departure from MIA they eventually get handed off to Miami Center sites in Nassau > George Town > Turks & Caicos and eventually San Juan Center. Looking for any input. Also, are they ever out of VHF range where they’d need to use HF or Sat Comms? Thanks in advance for any advice.

Standard route: SKIPS2 SKIPS Y290 BEANO BEANO3 SJU

Miami Tower
125.500 Miami Departure (to 16000) = MIA, KMIA Departure (South)
135.600 Miami (to FL230) = MIA, ZMA41 Miami Center (Junar)
126.325 Miami (to cruise altitude, odd) = MIA, ZMA40 Miami Center (Bimini)
127.225 Miami = MIA, ZMA60 Miami Center (Georgetown) + LGI, Miami Center (Bahamas Area)
126.275 Miami = LGI, Miami Center (Bahamas Area)
126.450 Miami = POP, MDPP Ground/Center (not listed but currently covered)
134.300 San Juan (descent, BEANO at 11000) = SJU, TJSJ San Juan Center
119.400 San Juan Approach = SJU, TJSJ Approach/Departure
132.050 San Juan Tower = SJU, TJSJ Del/Gnd/Twr

Reception varies.
