I think you might have those two twisted around. 139.7 has long been used by Huntress and Bullseye would fit for the Civil Air Patrol aircraft "targets" used in practice intercept training. 123.1 is a know CAP ops/SAR freq.

Wondering if anyone can help me with a couple terms and where to find a map that shows the areas. I always hear "heels", "turret", and a, b, c, d blocks for W386. I cant find any of that besides the w386 on this map. VFRMAP - Digital Aeronautical Charts. Where can I find a map that shows it. Thanks

Also I like using opennav for easier google map waypoint locations.
Spelling on various waypoints are tricky at times if they don't spell them out for you.

HEELS : waypoint : OpenNav aviation database
TURET : waypoint : OpenNav aviation database

Both these waypoints a ways South of us here.

This is an experiment to see if a linking function on SkyVector works. This is a notional flight from Langley AFB (KLFI) -> HEELS -> TURET -> NAS Oceana (KNTU):

Late this morning around 1145am local DEVIL 11 flight of 4 and SPAWN 21 flight of 4
inbound Atlantic City.. That SPAWN callsign new one for me here.
They all went up to Hariisburg area I believe to Duke MOA along with tanker TOPCAT 4 from McGuire
Afterwards TOPCAT 4 said we had negative contacts with the DEVIL,SPAWN flight so wanted to offload
somewhere else if possible,any C-32's around?

I don't know if anybody here ever makes it up near Indiantown Gap but, I was listening to traffic on the state TRS the other day and caught Muir Ops working with a ground controller doing evolutions with helos. The ground controller advised Ops to have helos contact GCA on Victor frequencies 139.425 (original) and then 142.225 (revised). Freq was changed because of noise and broken comms.

I have no idea how often these freqs are used there or for what else they may be utilized. I was too far away from there to hear anything on line of site channels.

Some C-17's including two Alaska tails doing cargo work for US Navy from Miramar KNKX.
On their way to Argentina in case needed for sub rescue.
Couple Vids show them loading the Navy sub rescue gear at Miramar.

US Navy to Deploy Undersea Rescue Capabilities to Argentina

Tails mode s logged are
RCH 387 98-0051 AK ANG
RCH 388 00-0171 AK ANG
RCH 389 06-6164 Travis.
RCH 406 C-5M 84-0061 went from KDOV to KNKX last night.

Their first stop is MPTO in Panama then onto SAVC in Argentina.
Hopefully they won't need all that rescue gear.
