Map of low-altitude freqs for Seattle ARTCC
« on: February 24, 2010, 03:18:15 PM »
Here's a link to a PDF of a map that shows low-altitude (< FL240) frequencies for contacting Seattle Center. I picked up the handout at the Northwest Aviation Trade Show last weekend.

It's handy if you don't have instrument charts on board and you want to get flight following or other services from ZSE. Print a copy and carry it your airplane or flight bag.

That's very nice. I'd like one for approach as well!

Approach frequencies are listed on Terminal Area Charts, Sectionals, and WACs, so they're readily available to VFR pilots. Center frequencies are harder to find.

Approach frequencies also change with traffic flow and the amount of traffic, but with the information in the VFR charts, at least you have a place to start.

The A/FD does list ARTCC frequencies in the back but it can be hard to know which site applies to your location.  I usually just look up the App/Dep control frequency for any airport I'm close to to figure out the center frequency when I'm in the air.

This chart though is great.  I grabbed one too.  Thanks for uploading.

The A/FD used to include a similar map, but it has disappeared. I wish all Centers would publish a similar map. They all say they want VFR pilots to get services, but they don't make it easy.

Bruce,
Has there been any updates on finding a simple map of ARTCC frequencies?
Thanks,

It doesn't specify low-altitude, high-altitude, or in-between,
but the new Washington State Airport Guide has maps for both Seattle Center frequencies  and remote communication outlets for Seattle Radio.
Check near the front of the book (pages ix and x in the 2015 edition).

A PDF edition of maps that show ARTCC and FSS frequencies is available in my Aviation Documents folder at OneDrive. Look for WA-ARTCC-FSS-Freqs-2016.pdf.
