I think they were in the Crypt MOA today. Heard some chatter on the scanner before leaving the house this afternoon.

297.3 - sounds like refueling coordination. Anyone got any idea which AR track this frequency is associated with?

406 Low and High have been around a while. They're more or less along the IA/MO and NE/KS border.

Autovon and all, The Carma doc is a decent baseline in my opinion but you'll note the date of the document. A lot has changed since then.

Default Voice comms heard in Winterset, IA today...

I'm listening on a PSR-800. It's in the other room, so I haven't had a chance to look at frequencies, but will continue listening.

HAWKEYE ONE TWO is dropping GBU 12s on a treeline not far from here, "Dropping on the green smoke, and I do not see muzzle flashes; we will drop sensors on the site."

"Burma...good hits...no need for another reattack."

"Hawkeye One-Two has captured your location; sensors on."

"Danger close for a GBU-38 airburst."

"Cyclone push eleven, 288.3." "Checking in, Level 10,000."

"Okay, Hawkeye, that's all we got; we gotta go home for land time."

"Back to initial; push 3."

A few notes from this weekend. Mostly PAT flights of BE20's out and about over the weekend, one flight decided to take a few touch and go's at MCW.

While I was out with the ADS-B laptop this weekend, noted coverage in the area of both VHF and Uniform frequencies, especially originating at MCW. I know many databases show Uniform frequencies that are not used here so here is the current usage. High altitude is 323.0250, coverage with a mobile antenna is about 30nm surrounding MCW. Low altitude is 257.6750, with a useful coverage of a bit less than the high alt frequency, again using a mobile wave antenna. With the MCW ATC antennas being at 1250 feet, the VHF range is barely 20 miles, even on top of ridges.

Don't know if you knew it or not, but Crypt is the MOA in NW Iowa and Cyclone is one of the F-16 callsigns out of Des Moines. Take advantage of the F-16 traffic while you can, the jets are leaving Des Moines fairly soon.
