:confused: 10:45 AM I'm in Fort Erie Ontario Canada across Lake Erie form Buffalo NY and for about 20 minutes there has been traffic on 228.90000 I have it as NORAD HUNTRESS CHEVY 31 F16'S CAP OVER NYC
I'll have to try moving my antenna around.

Very week signal and only made out ......Devel 1, Bullseye, and Darkstar.
Starting to get quiet on the frequency now >>>>

Any Idea what this is....

228.9 is a training frequency, often used in the MOA over Lake Ontario. It is extremely unlikely that you would hear aircraft over NYC from west of Buffalo.

There was a DEVIL 11 flight of two and BANGER 21 flight of 2 in the DUKE MOA in North Central PA this morning from about 10:00AM to just before 11:00AM. They were using that 228.90 freq at that time. DEVIL A2A was 142.750 (AM Mode) and BANGER A2A was 142.200 (AM Mode). Their altitude block goes up to, but not including, 18,000 Feet but I think it's impressive you were able to pick them up.
