• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

It's normal and probably coming from an E4 or E6 aircraft. It's a simulcast of what goes out on 11175.

Occasionally late at night they do AWACS training over Kentucky. I have caught a few transmissions. I have a crap ton of frequencies they use that are not in the database. Most of it is UHF air. There is a few lowband frequencies around 50Mhz.

The Emergency Action Message you heard may have been from the 121st ARW Command Post at Rickenbacker ANGB, or it may have been from an aircraft, likely an airborne command post. Sometimes you can kinda tell by characteristics of the transmission. The 121st ARW has KC-135s, which do have a wartime mission, which means their CP has an emergency actions controller who can receive EAMs & Force Direction Messages & retransmit them as-necessary, ID'ing with a tactical callword or basic ID like "Rickenbacker" or "Command Post." At other bases that have combat-coded aircraft on some semblance of alert, that's done routinely, but at others, it's just occasional or during some sort of exercise.

Airborne command posts, as part of their mission and frequent training, generate & broadcast or re-broadcast EAMs & FDMs frequently over the spectrum.
