• 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:

I'm in Albany NY and I've been picking up what sounds like a refueling exercise on 276.5000. Call signs include "dagger 3" "dagger 361""Jumbo". Pretty active at 13:45.

It appears to be pretty much over. Afterward I heard them on 125.000 Albany airport Vortac. I'm using a 396 with a RS duckie antenna and was able to hear both sides (air and ground) loud and clear, so I think they might be from Stratton ANGB in Schenectady.

yes 276.500 is used for air-refueling communications. I have heard it myself many times. As far as the aircraft being from the Stratton ANGB at the Schenectady County airport I dont believe so. The 109TH AW at the schenectady county airport is a C-130 Hercules Transport Aircraft unit called RAVEN OPS and they use the frequency of 340.800 MHZ AM mode.
