South Carolina/North Carolina Road Trip Scanning Report; 9 January 2019

On the second day of my road trip, I traveled to Charlotte, NC to visit the Carolinas Aviation Museum and the North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer, NC. Today’s list builds on yesterday’s list from the first day. Added to the list today were talkgroups from the NC VIPER P25 TRS and the Charlotte UASI P25 TRS. As conventional frequencies go, a few more National Park Service Blue Ridge Parkway P25 repeaters were added. Frequencies for Charlotte/Douglas IAP, Atlanta and Washington ARTCCs, and the NC Air National Guard were added in the aviation/MilCom category.

Atlantic Coast Lines No 1031, built in 1913, at the North Carolina Transportation Museum

After lunch at the excellent Niko’s Grill near Charlotte/Douglas IAP after visiting the Carolinas Air Museum, I hung out at the Charlotte Airport Overlook for a while and watched some of the airliners taking off. This is a great spot for plane spotters to watch airport activity and take photos of planes. If you’re primarily into military aviation spotting, don’t expect to see much, but you’ll see a lot of commercial traffic. The only problem is that you’re right next to the transmitter site for the airport so radio monitoring/scanning can be an issue; I ended up just turning off the Uniden Home Patrol 2 and the Whistler TRX-2 in my mobile station due to interference. Niko’s Grill, by the way, was a great choice for lunch; I had a delicious gyro with fries. If you go, avoid the lunch rush around noon, it fills up very quickly – it’s obviously a very popular place for lunch.

Miguel’s Mexican/American Restaurant, don’t let appearances fool you

Tucked away off of I-85 Exit 32 in Charlotte, is Miguel’s Mexican/American Restaurant. Don’t let the small, decidedly unfancy appearance of Miguel’s fool you, the food is outstanding. They serve both Mexican and American cuisine; I don’t know about the American part, but the Mexican is outstanding. For supper tonight, I had shrimp enchiladas (grilled shrimp with grilled peppers and onions) and they might just have been the best enchiladas I’ve ever eaten. If you’re around Charlotte/Douglas Airport, you’ve got to eat at Miguel’s!
