Sounds like mobile tank operations, open mic for the past hour or so on 31.05 FM
I'm copying this now at 10:45AM MST from Northwest Montana...
I would not expect F-15s or KC-10s to be on VHF LO FM. But who knows..I think the tanks referenced are the ground vehicle thingys with turrets and big guns.
Probably something with an automatic antenna tuner similar to these:what kinda antenna would they run for a multiband radio like those? would have to be something to cover many bands and such
I helped Field the Singars when it first came out. Korea - Second Infantry Div - 1989, 1990.Low band was pretty common when I was at Bragg in early 90s. We used SINCGARS radios. The one I guess the military still uses. A lot of times on news and documentary programs its the radio on the center console on the HMMVs. Back in my day, range control, drop zone safety, etc was run in the clear in single channel mode. I won't divulge any deeper than that. When I got bored out in the field, I would tune in NCHP E-town dispatch and listen to them.
