Exclamation NORAD to Conduct Exercise Flights Over Phoenix 8/12/2014

NORAD to Conduct Exercise Flights Over Phoenix

The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) will conduct exercise flights tomorrow, Aug. 12, 2014, as they practice intercept and identification procedures. The exercise will occur over Phoenix between 10 a.m. and noon MDT.
People in this area may hear and/or see NORAD-controlled fighter jets in close proximity to a military or military contracted aircraft, which will be taking on the role of aircraft of interest. Although they are scheduled for the morning, the flights could be delayed or cancelled due to weather concerns.

Seems strange it's in the news but I guess the fact it's a major city makes it a big deal otherwise the morons would think it's another 911. But here it happens all the time. They are doing it right now. I am receiving have quick timing hacks as I type this. They have been calling out targets all morning.

Mancow, on what freqs do you normally monitor this type of NORAD exercise? It might be different in AZ, but it will give us somewhere to start other than the well known USAF freqs in the area.

123.10mhz - Callsign "CAP Flight-228" (Civil Air Patrol), and broadcasts from a "USAF" entity
271.00mhz - Combat Air Patrol reaction, also referred to as "CAP" sometimes, is provided by the
162ndFW F-16's, Callsign - Cougar.

Comment : I'm hearing it down here right now on my PRO-2006 with the standard whip antenna provided by the maker, but not on the Uniden BCD536HP connected to an external Discone antenna
In case some of you can not hear it on the new radio, try the old stand-bys!!

Well, either the time was moved up or changed.

Seems the Cougars are on their way home here to Tucson.

Event was to occur 9:00am to 11:00am local time. I guess they finished and didn't need the whole 2 hours.

I was only able to start monitoring around 10:00am local time. I caught a few quick transmissions on 271.000 around 10:00am and all is quiet now.

And CAP [Civil Air Patrol, not to be confused with CAP - Combat Air Patrol ] flight coordination started on Mt Ord R49 [148.125] and moved to R18 White Tanks [145.150.]

123.1 was the "121.5" for this excersise; CAP 239 was coordinating the flight's movements and Cougar was challenging the target.

Also brief transmissions on 282.6 regarding CAP coordination with the CAP flights

Last part of the excercise had the target intercepted and splashed by Cougar 2, coord 3347.098 by 111.55910

They have landed at KTUS.

Could have also cut it short because of the weather in your area.
