Listener Forum / Re: KLAX RNAV Departures

RNAV means Area Navigation; not Remote.

RNAV is a method of navigation which permits the operation of an aircraft on any desired flight path; it allows its position to be continuously determined wherever it is rather than only along tracks between individual ground navigation aids.


The reason that ATC states the initial RNAV point in take off clearance is that there were too many occurrences of departing aircraft flying the incorrect procedure.

135.0 is off field, I was told the location was e.  windmill Ln  and gilespie st...

That would definitely be why! It used to be at the field, just south of the Approach end of 8R at A7.

I had an idea about how to fix this, involving the provider hosting the KHND feed, but the transmitter is between HND and LAS, , so that may not work. Hmm...

Good info to know. Thanks!

Sorry, should have been more clear. Why no military frequencies on LiveATC? I did see that the last poster linked the Tinker AFB feed though.

A number of reasons.
  • LiveATC is a volunteer service. People volunteer to put up feeds for a given airport, military, commercial, GA, or other wise.
  • For a feed to really be audible, a feed provider has to have line of site with the facility or transmitter operating that frequency.
     That generally requires close proximity to the transmitter or airport.

Just a short list. In short, if someone doesn't live near the airport, a feed can't really be provided, and even then someone has to volunteer to host the equipment to provide the feed.

Any reason why there are no military tower frequencies (at least in the US)? Federal Law prohibiting this? They are public frequencies, in the sense they are published on aeronautical charts and sites like AirNav.

Military frequencies are definitely available. If you are seeing them on sites like AirNav, then you are seeing that they are public, as they are published on FAA charts. The 4 AFBs I worked at all have frequences listed: Wright-Patterson, Offutt, Nellis, and Tinker.

In fact, the only AFB I know of that doesn't have a frequency available on any chart whatsoever is Los Angeles.
