I hear these on the east coast almost daily. Sounds business as usual to me.

I hear them all the time on HF - but what caught me was that it was so loud and clear and came in booming - I'm guessing here - on UHF - a rarity here in Texas and (possibly) in conjunction with what's about to happen in Syria.

Next time you hear it, go on Planefinder.net. When I get these UHF transmissions strong, there is usually a US Navy E-6 right off my coast. Boeing E-6 Mercury - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
You could be right though. It could very well be associated with the current events being the aircraft are more inland now.

In 2009 caught them north of Montreal on their way back south at FL290.

The title of the first post states it was heard on 311.0 &. 321.0, but then you say you're guessing it was UHF? It sounds like whoever actually made the recording tuned-in a multiplexed WBFM UHF channel.

I'll never figure out how EAMs & FDMs can be heard dozens of times each & every day for decades straight, yet someone happens to hear one during a time of increased tension, and they publicly supposition that it could be an instruction to raise the readiness condition or a war order.

I was wondering when "Hooligan" was going to pop up again. He's made it a career of peeing on my posts. I'll admit It was a bad wording on my part. I wasn't "guessing it was on UHF" - I was guessing "It's a rarity here in Texas" as opposed to on the East Coast. I apologize for the confusion - and the assumption. However, since EAMS are rarely heard hear in Texas and (as far as I know) speculation is still not a sin (even if the speculation is wrong) I'm going to keep on doing so and I'll consider myself scolded, corrected and graced by Hooligan's wise and all-knowing presence again! I missed you Tim!

PS: Notice how he shed doubt on who made the recording? That's one of Tim's favorite things to do - cast doubt. Side bet to anyone - five dollars - that Tim dredges up everything he's ever corrected me on over the last twenty years.


That said - there seems to be a large exercise here in the Texas/New Mexico area today with many aircraft including B-52s "SKULL, TUFF,DOOM and ICER - along with TURBO, GASSR and SENTRY operating on 284.475 MHz.

You should probably check out 383.550, you'll more than likely hear data there.

AWACS in the pattern today - and you were right. What sounds like data on 383.550. Also lots of activity on the GEP Northstar frequencies.

Nice to see some pictures of the E6 Mercury at work. I must have a laugh at the fact that this thread has drawn attention of mercurial people.

Thanks, I actually got lucky. They just happened to hop across the border then looped back South right over my place. I was tracking them on my SBS. I think I had a 500mm Sigma lens back then. It was very sunny that afternoon and they were hard to pick out but I caught them just as they were passing over. I was pretty happy with the outcome. Have not seen them up here since then. They usually skirt the border between Vermont & Quebec, then turn back.
