Darkstar working Crazy and ACE callsigns with "hostiles" up to 32K feet.
Very clear here in Niagara.
DARKSTAR is a call used by the Canadian side of NORAD, a counterpart to HUNTRESS. It is unlikely that a Canadian listener west of Buffalo is hearing Viper airspace traffic.
You're hearing what's known as the "interplane" channel used by a flight of (assumably military) aircraft. Usually a lot of BS'ing but also some important comms between themselves. They can then use the normal 225-400MHz band for official comms with their controllers -- ATC, AWACS, NORAD, etc.Sitting at the beach in NYC with my Pro-106 in search, heard pilots (?) talking about "doing 3 k but I don't want to end up in the ocean" on 140.175 and then another reading out descending altitude down to 3500; some other chatter on 140.2 am. Just starting to get into milcoms so I don't know what I'm hearing.
