The OH-58's that do counterdrug ops here use "Boise" callsigns on civilian ATC...not typically very formal with callsigns on the actual local LE channels (usually just "air to ground" since it is a civilian LEO talking to his counterparts).

Mystic and Bandit are the two callsigns I usually hear from Gap helos...with the occasional helo just calling as Guard-### on ATC. The Mystic and Bandit callsigns seem to either be related to pilot or mission...not sure, but I know by the radio RID that it isn't the same bird using a particular callsign all the time.

BWI approach also advised that there are a couple of A-10s in the area.

Ben,

A couple of years ago the MD ArNG traded in it's OH-58s for the UH-72 Lakotas. When they work with LE they use Recon & Smuggler callsigns.

Guys,

According to sked the BA's wee supposed to practice from 2-4 PM this afternoon. Errands kept me away from radios but was back by 3PM and didn't hear anything on the radios or see anything in the air which I usually do when they practice over Annapolis (on 10 miles away from my QTH)

Did anyone hear them? Maybe they cancelled due to wx.
