Default CV-22B Ospreys heading up the coast

This may not happen at all, but just a heads-up. Three CV-22B Ospreys (Reach1001, 1002 and 1003) just landed at KOQN (Quonset, Rhode Island) along with REACH 1010 (via LiveATC 1927Z). I don't know if they are going any further but they did mention using 225.025mhz as their A-A freq. May want to keep an ear open for these guys in the coming days. (hmmm...just heard ATC mention departure at 2031Z)

NOTE: UK group is stating;"NOTAM suggests they are due in Lajes tomorrow (Sunday 21st), serviceability and weather willing"
At 2026Z I heard Moncton center call REACH1010. Told him to switch to Halifax freq.

One of the Ospreys have been given his clearance direct YYT at 2034Z. RCH1003 has received clearance direct to Gander at 2045Z

Incorrect info.. GOLD 11 inbound landing Bangor from Travis 1600z
Which has me thinking..
These GOLD Coronet tankers all staging at Bangor means recievers must be
within Bangor range already to A/R with these tankers
Usually half the Coronet tankers drag to Bangor/N.S. area unless local fighters or B-52 types etc
Hmm.
Stay tuned..

I think that was the reserve tankers. Apparently there may be a MAZDA flight of F-15s on the way over from The UK. Listen for 493rd FS fighters
Deadly *1 - 86-0163
Deadly *2 - 84-0015
Hitman *1 - 86-0174
Hitman *2 - 86-0178

Crap. At least I know though now, thanks for the heads down. I'll disable my "Big Ol Optimistic List of Plane Frequencies" scanlist and enjoy the increase in performance. Thanks!

Default V-22 Ospreys in the vicinty...again.

Ok...let try this again. Today, 7 Ospreys landed at Bangor Airport.
St John's (CYYT) had 4 arrive as RUGBY Flight11/13/15/17 after 2100Z today along with two tankers;
OTIS86 (KC-130J 165810) and OTIS87 (KC-130J 166472).
I have no idea when the 7 are leaving Bangor but today they were using Coronet Echo Primary 314.100mhz as well as 297.900mhz.
Also noted was 360.500mhz as the 'tanker freq' and 303.000 / 236.250mhz was the A-A for the Otis Hercs.
Hopefully they will pass near us to at least get some radio chatter. (Darryl, you can add those to your "Big Ol Optimistic List of Plane Frequencies". LOL )

If the weather clears, they typically refuel very low and would be a great 'catch' if we were able to get a picture.
The 1st part of the recordings from earlier today are here: Audioboo / 7 CV-22B Ospreys - April 23rd, 2013
The second part with the Hercs is here: Audioboo / OTIS86 & OTIS87- April 23rd, 2013

Awesome!! Thanks look, I'll add those to the list. It's not enabled all the time, but when it is, I prefer hearing tanking.

Rugby is callsign Marine Corp MV-22B's fromn VMM-365 New River.
USAF calls theirs CV-22B's.
Were originally scheduled for end of last month to Lajes so thought I missed them..
10 tails in squad but maybe brought airspare along.. I heard only 6 count off in your audio to Bangor.
(VMM-365 flies the barn > Marine Corps Air Station New River > News Article Display)

Nice recordings! 236.250 is VMGR-252 Base at MCAS Cherry Point. 360.500 is one of their usual unit freqs. If you want to check out those SATCOM channels they mentioned, plug in 269.850d/310.850u (43) and 269.950d/310.950u (44), both NFM mode as usual.

Wish I had something to give you for VMM-365, but they are one of the few squadrons I don't have any freqs for. Heard them mention 294.800, but I think that's another Coronet freq.

Thanks for the clarifications guys. All great info. As usual, I'm back to work today so I won't be manning my station. Hopefully I'll get something of of interest and post it later.

So disappointment once again
All 7 Ospreys departed YYT (as OTIS85 Flight) this morning at approximately 1345Z. Sorry to get your hopes up again.
