You have to be more specific :
- what area/state you want to monitor ?
- what part of the spectrum are you ready to monitor ( VHF / UHF / HF ) ?

This way will be more easy to help you !

I don't think there is an "in general" answer for this.

National Guard units will use both military band and non-military band communications equipment. ARNG units will use Army HF, VHF, and UHF frequencies as well as any state resources they have.

Here in PA, PAARNG units may use VHF low, VHF hi, UHF, or the state's OpenSky system (yes, they are an active user) depending on their available equipment and assigned mission. The ANG in PA uses air band frequencies for their planes, and VHF Hi for their ground comms (at least the unit I've monitored). I'm sure ANG can also be found throughout the radio spectrum. I've seen the inside of the PAARNG's 3rd CST comm van and they can talk on pretty much anything.

OK, if there aren't any "common" freqs for the National Guard throughout the country, how about posting what you have for where you are. maybe we need to have something started for this. I have nothing so I'll leave it to others to start. I just think it would be nice to have a good starting point in case something happens instead of trying to scrape info together at the last min.

thanks for any input.

Besides their normal base ops freqs, I would venture a guess to say that most of their training ops would be using newer model encrypted or freq-hopping radios on VHF-low or something. And a lot of their training takes place during the summer. Even if these freqs were in the clear, they may change a lot per activity. But I would search the low band for ops in the government ranges. With low-band skip, you may hear something farther away than you think. As far as UHF military airband, you might try the Maryland forum for their Sticky Thread for MilAir II (and I) that seems to be updated regularly.

s104,

In New Jersey, the National Guard uses the statewide State Police 800 MHz trunked system.

Talkgroups:

NJNG Data 27824
NJNG 1 27856
NJNG 2 27888
NJNG 3 27920
NJNG 4 28688
NJNG 5 28720
NJNG 1F? 28572
Guard EOC Interagency 57936

I wouldn't be surprized if they have access to assorted other talkgroups as well (i.e. the Fleetwides).

Click under "Trunked Radio Systems for State Police" at http://www.radioreference.com/module...ame=RR&aid=753 for frequency details.

The VHF low band is a good place to loook for activity from various branches of the military.

Here are some of the freqs used by the Kentucky National Guard.... (These freqs, among others, are also used by Kentucky Emergency Management.)
