Hi!

No, I don't need any "frequencies", I already have a "Consolidated Frequency List", LOL! I'm not really into listening to VHF or UHF military traffic, although I live within 10 miles of Barksdale AFB, the "Buff's" that released some of those deadly and accurate 'strikes' against 'So Damn Insane", LOL!

What I'm interested in the the low-band VHF Military transmissions from the 30 thru 50 mhz range. That should be a lot of fun trying to catch, if not scrambled. With some of the 10 & 6 meter band openings we've had lately, has anyone snagged anything down there? I know most of the HF transmissions are in ssb and above 10 meters SHOULD be FM, but I haven't heard anything on my scanners. For HF, I have the receiver in the Icom 706 MkII-G as a SWL receiver. It seems to work well.

Does anyone bother to monitor the VLF Military freqs for submarines? Or have they stopped that and gone strickly to satellite transmissions?

Thanks for any advanced help.

Respectfully,
73,

I'm pretty sure the massive underground VLF antenna system in Michigan, that was used for submarine communications was decommissioned years ago.

Check the top of the list at this site for the VHF/Lo frequencies you're looking for. It's not for your area, but they could still be active in your area.

"Dots Funny, Hi, Hi!

Hi Mr. Lakes,

"Thanks" for the information. I see they plan to operate during "Field Day", LOL! But then what would you NOT expect from a CW station, LOL! I hope to give and take a few contacts during the contest. Unfortunately, I'll be on commercial power and in air-conditioning because of health issues. The temps here will be in the low 90's, but the humidity will be 100%, as a chance of rain from Saturday thru Sunday looms on the horizon. I can take a bit of "dry" heat, but these Louisiana swamplands are hard on those with medical problems.

Respectfully,
