ATC Frequency Question

Hi, maybe a weird question but how does it work? On (almost)every phone you can listen to radio. You can choose wich frequency you want to listen. I was wondering if you’re nearby an airport that for example has tower on 123.4. Is there than a possibility that you can be on the atc frequency if you turn you’re phones frequency on 123.4?

No, pretty sure atc’s use vhf and uhf radio so it won’t work. You’ll need a special receiver.

Yea and you need to check whether it’s legal

Here in Singapore, you can’t even listen in! So your best bet is LiveATC

Most are VHF. I’m not aware of any phone with a VHF radio.
