Default Maple Flag, May 16th to June 2nd.

Maple Flag, from may 16 to June 2nd. If you have a scanner capable of scanning the military aircraft band, now is the time to get it programmed and ready for the action. If you find any frequencies in use, please post them so the rest of us can listen in.

Not sure if it is related or not, but this afternoon there was a military airplane landing at Calgary. My knowledge of military aircraft is limited but doing a google search brought up a plane that looked similar to the one landing. The plane was similar to the Boeing C-17 Globemaster. I could not see the insignia so not sure what country it belonged to.

I would say yes. I just could not see any insignias when it was coming in.

Hey guys, I just happened on this thread by accident kinda lol, there is going to be some AR (Aerial Refueling) action by the sounds of it, I believe I heard OILER71, and he said he would be conducting AR's this morning. Im not sure where or when but he just took off from CYOD (Cold Lake).

I've been listening in on the training/Maple Flag for the last couple weeks, and there has been tons of activity, I'll post some of the audio below, and then more later when I have time to go through all the recordings.

I dont have any freqs to add as yet, but I am searching as I type, so hopefully I can add something later. All the traffic I have heard has been on the freqs listed in the RR DB for Cold Lake, so make sure you have all of them in your scanners if your trying to listen in. I pick them up quiet well from Bonnyville, and have even been able to hear them as far away as St Paul/Elk Point, over to Athabasca, and even down as far south as Boyle, and a bit further, depending on how hi up I was during my travels for work.

edit: OILER or a C-130 sounding aircraft just passed over my station.

All the freqs listed in the RR DB, so go here : CFB Cold Lake Scanner Frequencies and Radio Frequency Reference

They use the Air to Air training freqs primarily, but often use 4 Wing Ops and others depending on who, and how many aircraft are flying, so I would suggest putting all those freqs on that page in your scanner.

CHEETAH's (Alpha Jets, possibly Top Aces) are using 245.5, 243.5 too I believe, and I heard someone talking on 268.3, might have been OILER.

MURDER01 is on 316.3, talking about weather on his way up here from base, so maybe American aircraft of some sort?? I have 316.3 listed as 104th FW.

Refresh your page, had a few posts in the last 5 mins with freqs, and YW

Edit: CHEETAH74 reports he is heading for Wainwright. MURDER01 is joining formation with CHEETAH74.

Sweet! And now worries, let me know if you hear any freqs called out.

Got traffic on 227.5 now (listed as 101st ARW in my scanner, but thats probably wrong, I have a lot of stuff labeled from out on the east coast, 101st are based out of Bangor, Maine lol).

Just heard HITMAN say he was complete AR, and heading back towards Conklin I think he said.

Will do, I'm just now really getting in some good scanning, wish I had a second scanner running lol. I'll do something up later today with what I find.

Edit: got NIGHTMARE49 talking to tower now.

This is where having a spectrum display would come in handy. I am sure a lot more frequencies are in use. Being able to see a chunk of the radio spectrum would help in finding them.
