Lightbulb Range Control listings

Ok, so I have been thinking about this for a while and finally had the
revelation that "if it does not yet exist, you probably ought to start one
yourself".

We need a Range Control list.

I am thinking along the lines of any permanent freq assigned to a specific
location where there is a fixed radio base station, under a roof (to include ATC). While I
hate to exclude A2A and temporary assignments I think it has to be done to
make the list serve any purpose.

If one already exists I haven't found it yet and while much can be found in
the graciously posted logs of many folks, it's hardly a one stop shop due
to many threads over many years.

Low band anything is kind of a niche area right off the bat, and military
low band just as much, but I believe it will be a benefit to all, just to
have a listing or a dedicated thread to search, of the well known and
generally confirmed Range Control freqs for confirmation, elimination or
for those who couldn't care less, a quick way of determining where a band
may be open.

I don't have any good ideas how to do this other than just simply list them
so suggestions are welcome.

I'll start with stuff I feel pretty sure about:


38.9 Ft. Bragg Range Control Primary

41.75 Camp Mackall tower/(Ft. Bragg Range Control)

41.8 Ft. Bragg Range Control Helo Ops (Tower)

46.75 Ft. Bragg Range Control back-up


This partly came about to my doing a "new" antenna test this morning and picking up tx's on 41.75 but the tower side only. Which only leads me to conclude it was skip and not from Bragg. There is no way the "new" antenna is that much better, but I also can't find another 41.75 in use as of yet.

Well howdeee,, you are an ambitious soul. You likely are familiar with these two, but, there is a gentleman out of Kentucky that keeps a great list, as well as the gentleman out of Texas. I don't want to type the monikers here because I don't know if they want to be contacted.. They are both great sources. I like searching the area you're talking about, mostly due to the fact that it's similar to fishing, you may not catch anything for awhile, but when you bring one in the boat it is worth it. Take care over there.

41.75 might be Eagles Nest...

You can search the entire radioreference database for low band frequencies. I've, over time, added tons of range control low band frequencies to the database for various posts and airfields.

Lindsey and space are both correct. 41.75 is used by
Mackall AAF, NC KHFF
and
Eagle Co RGNL Co KEGE (Eagles Nest)

We need a Range Control list.
Have you considered putting all this information, and future finds, in a Wiki page?

You can also go through all the low band logs posts (mostly by kkn50) in the past few years, pick out the range control or other military stuff (easy to do because kkn50 posts the correct 150.0 tone), and make your own database.

Why not put confirmed range control entries in the radioreference database?
