What is normally used for ATIS broadcasts?
  • A
    Discrete VHF frequency or/and VOR.
  • B
    Voice channel of an ILS.
  • C
    DME voice channel.
  • D
    NDB frequencies.

Voice-ATIS is broadcasted mostly on discrete frequencies, whenever practicable. If a discrete frequency is not available, the transmission may be broadcast on the voice channel(s) of the most appropriate terminale navigation aid, preferably a VOR. In such case, it is essential that the range and the readability are adequate for this kind of operation.


ICAO Annex 3
4.3.4 Voice-automatic terminal information service (Voice-ATIS) broadcasts

4.3.4.2 A discrete VHF frequency shall, whenever practicable, be used for Voice-ATIS broadcasts. If a discrete frequency is not available, the transmission may be made on the voice channel(s) of the most appropriate terminal navigation aid(s), preferably a VOR, provided the range and readability are adequate and the identification of the navigation aid is sequenced with the broadcast so that the latter is not obliterated.
