ARTIC 21 (x2)
124.225 ZID > 126.375 ZID > 343.650 ZID > 327.000 SDF A/D
283.800 tac

ARTIC 31 (x2)
360.725 ZID > 343.650 ZID > 327.000 SDF A/D

I believe I've heard those calls used by contractor A-4s, but I can't recall the company...possibly Draken?

Bunch of 815th AS C-130s from Keesler heading north as RCH flights. I wonder what that's all about. Time to figure out A>A freqs for them.

251.9 and 324.2 are a couple known freqs.
Seem to be headed offshore Maine.. Prob will have to stop in Iceland for fuel but they seem to be on Southerly track.
Maybe headed for Azores?

1400 local Italian AF C-130J inbound with Andrews CP hard to understand thick accent 20 minutes out.
Mode s shows IAM 4682 C-130J MM62194 46th BA or Brigata Aerea..

Looks like those Keesler C-130J's went into St Johns.. Flightaware is down now so can't confirm it yet.

DC ANG WILD flight active on 139.45, probably who I heard departing earlier.

Pax Osprey Ops 249.65 active. Likely AE6B94 showing OSPREY01. Doing some comms checks, mentioned SELCAL and then going back to ALE.
They've IDed as OSPREY01 talking to Power Shop.

Communicating on HF 11.980. I tuned to a web SDR and heard them call on it.
Doing HF comm checks with JACK3. Going to resume ALE testing now.

Mark,
Nice catch

I have Tester 74 as UH-72 # 168249.
The callsign he used is interesting, they normally use Navy Tango Papa ##
Your right,my bad.. listening again was "Navy Tango Papa 74" Guess Tester was what I was thinking.
So this is what it looks like.. Can't miss this in the area.. Never seen one before. Here is 168248.. TP 73?

MYTEE 11 #69-0029 Buff tracking off NW UK headed home assume to Minot. The last to depart for home
after nice long exercise over there.Doubt we will catch it unless it goes to Barksdale instead. Maybe HF?
Now it is not tracking.. Guess they turned it off after clearing UK airspace or out of range.
