I also just saw this article come up today.

Which Mil Air Frequency ranges do you think we will catch some activity on today?

Also will I be able to pick them up with just my small telescoping antenna that came with the scanner (BCD996T)?

I did pickup voice conversation on 271.0000 more than a few times yesterday. That was the first I heard on this frequency. Did anyone hear others?

why do they have so many frequencies?

It's easier to program most commonly used freqs in the radio, 20 UHF, & 20 VHF, than to manually enter each freq every time you fly. The F-16's will mainly use UHF to talk to Ops, clearance delivery, ground, tower, app/dep, MN.C, & the MOA's, or Hardwood Range. They mainly use the VHF for A/A chit chat. Also makes it easy for us to follow them when they say push BTN 5. As long as you know what BTN 5 is. ;~)

I should've left off the HF freqs. Only some of the F-16A's could do HF. They now fly the F-16C's.
