• San Francisco International Airport (KSFO)
• Kansas City International Airport (KMCI)
• Greater Rochester International Airport (KROC)
• Sioux Falls Regional Airport (KFSD)
• Jackson Hole Airport (KJAC)
• Tupelo Regional Airport (KTUP)
• Key West International Airport (KEYW)
• Charles M. Schultz-Sonoma County Airport (KSTS)
• Roswell Industrial Air Center (KROW)
• Frank Wiley Field (KMLS)
• Sidney Richland Regional (KSDY)
• Dawson Community (KGDV)
• L.M. Clayton (KOLF)
• Wokal Field (KGGW)
• Havre City County (KHVR)
• Lewiston Municipal (KLWS)

The March edition of Monitoring Times Fed Files column will contain additional details of the TSA communications.

Super Bowl XLV Update

Haven't had much time to update the blog, but things are starting to get busy here in Arlington. Some radio systems checks have been heard, as well as some military units checking communications.

Things will be getting busier as the big game day approaches. Hopefully I will have some time to play with the scanners!
