Listening Out Squawk
As from 28th June 2012 EMA will be introducing a "Listening out squawk" 4572. Please remain outside controlled airspace unless you have a clearance to enter, and maintain a listening watch only. This will have the advantage of keeping the R/T workload down. For full details please read entry in Air Pilot. Pilots of aircraft to the west of a line from PEDIG through Nuneaton disused should consider listening out with Birmingham Approach on 118.050 and squawking 0010.
