Just posted a new list of DoD Air Refueling freqs for the southeast United States on the MilcomMP blog at Milcom Monitoring Post: Aerial Refueling Frequencies - Southeast United States. I have included a copy of the DoD AR map so you can see which tracks/anchors are in your area
73 and good hunting.
Interesting. This hex has been seen in Europe on my box in Btown, FH's box in VA. There was even a call in the Mode-S of Thor and that call was also used by hex code AE0441.Someone should be listening for arrivals in the Fayetteville area. Got one of the unknown hex codes AE0440 seeming to head that way. Looked to have come out of Greenville, SC- maybe the Lockheed facility. Altitude and speed are consistent with a helicopter. 8900ft 155-170kts
Online, probably not Pete. There has been a lot over the years published in various magazines and books, some like Monitoring Times are no longer in publication. My question back at you are you wanting to learn more about the conversations you are hearing or the user/usage of the frequencies you are monitoring? If it is the later you would need to provide a freq/location in order to nail down a user/usage. If it is just trying to understand the content of what is being monitored again that depends on the user/usage of a frequency. For instance, some freqs are used for air traffic control. Comms on these freqs involve the safe movement of aircraft and they use a lot of phraseology that is documented in FAA publications. You will find some useful information on the FAA website at https://www.faasafety.gov/gslac/ALC/libview_normal.aspx?id=17272. Some of that terminology is explained in the FAA Pilot/Controller glossary at https://www.faa.gov/air_traffic/publications/media/pcg.pdf.I just started monitoring military air. I put an antenna up about 40 feet in the air. I live in eastern North Carolina (Pitt County). I am hearing a moderate amount of traffic. My question is can anybody tell me or direct me to a link or website that could explain what I'm listening to? I guess what I'm trying to say is there any good reading material for newbie? Any help would be appreciated
73's Pete -. .---- ...- .- -.-
