Default Beale Frequency Verification?

Could someone (antfreq? verify that these frequencies are still active @ Beale AFB?

Oh man - I assumed you were talking about the P25 Trunked system.
listed here:

http://www.radioreference.com/module...TRSDB&sid=3525


So,

As far as the conventional freqs - I'll program them in and see if i hear anything.
Flight traffic on my days off ( fri sat sun ) is very limited so hopefully I can catch something.

Default Trolling through milcom@qth.net..

And found a Com Card for Beale T-38s. I posted below to baymilcomm@yahoogroups.com. Anyone here want to take a crack at filling in the holes? Or better yet programming it in and see what comes up?

I found the following post in the archives of the milcom@...
mailing list. It was made by the dude beloe. His annotations are
in all caps. Mine are in mixed case.

Does someone in the Beale monitoring area want to plug these in and
see what they get? Can someone fill in some of the holes?

i was there on wed. night at sunset and saw lots of air traffic in the sky, didn't hear squat on any frequencies except ATIS. i did get some encrypted traffic on some milair frequencies but nothing on the ones listed above.

antfreq, they're still using these conventional ones right? hehehe

UPDATE:
pfft. attenuation was on. i'm a dork.

Question Beale question

Can anybody who lives near Beale AFB answer a question for me?

I have listened to 150.325 when in Marysville or Yuba City, and I cannot seem to hear or understand anything that anybody says on that frequency, even though the signal is strong. It's as if that radio system severely quiets down everything that is said. Can anybody shed some light on this?

I live nearly line-of-sight of Beale, I'll start monitoring

EDIT

150.32500 127.3 PL
flight mechanics Base Ops
Beale Air Force Base Yuba
United States Air Force (USAF) CA

Probably won't hear anything at this time of day on a Friday, flight ops are greatly reduced on the weekends.

Anyone else wanna take a crack at 149.15, 243.50, 269.60, 353.70 and 364.20 ? Or, can you provide any examples of traffic heard on these frequencies to aid in identification?

I'll plug those in and hopefully I'll hear something, but I'm not usually awake or home during peak flight times. BAH !

I see the U-2 almost daily, have yet to see the Global Hawk.

If you don't hear anything on 150.325, try listening to 149.1500. I believe I get the same thing on that freq., just a bunch of very quiet communication. I'm trying to figure out why it is so quiet. Is it because of some form of radio system I haven't heard of?

I hear 149.1500 fine, it does have a low volume. I don't know it is because of it being NFM mode and that particular band. That stuff is beyond my comprehension. It is in my experience that military conventional freqs are often "low volume". I don't know why, but that's been my experience with the local AFB's.
