Might be already answered someplace but I can't find it. I'm a stones throw from CFB Petawawa and I have a whole bank full of freqs for the base BUT this week there are CF-18's flying around. What should I be scanning to hear them?
Speaking of armed forces monitoring, anyone know what range the MP's use in their cruisers in the London area? I was in the area of Wosley Barracks not too long ago and thought I may be able to grab something using Close Call... but nada. And I don't exactly want to be nosing around looking in car windows to see what they have for radios in there
Last time I heard fighters from Bagotville, they were working UHF tacticals, 225-400 MHz. Also, in 1998, a fighter from Cold Lake stopped at CYGK and I asked the pilot what frequency range they worked for air-to-air and he confirmed UHF.
Hope that's some help....
EDIT: After posting, it occurred to me that I also heard activity in this freq. range from Trenton. I seem to remember comms involving "jumpers away" on 226.8.
