Exciting Tank Comunications Today (English)
Unknown Location (Most Skip was originating from Illinois,Ohio,Texas at the time, changing very rapidly and unpredictible).

Same time unknown Weird Music on 30.6900 Mhz NFM (Chimes followed by Unknown Language)
Unknown if Harmonics?

Lots of yelling,Alarms going off (Fuel Pressure Low).
Sounded like 3-way Comms continuous transmitting w/
"Sir",
"Gunnery"
"Backup"
"****"
"Sir"
"More Alarms Beeping",
"Move Left",
"Move Right"
"Hold"
"Report Enemy Tanks positions"
"Machine Gun Fire"
"Clanking" Etc
To much fading to get good recording.
I heard these comms before on other freqs.
Anyone know where this originated or knows more?

Vhf low carries over rough terrain well and as we are reading here has ionospheric propagation properties that the higher bands don't.

Tank Gunnery

It sounds like you're hearing U.S. troops practicing tank gunnery. There are several large bases in the midwest (Ohio, Michigan, and Illinios) where reserve and guard troops, as well as many active bases further west and south. In garrison, most army radio traffic is SCPT (single channel plain text), also known as FM "in the clear", unencrypted, and would be in the 30-80 MHz range. My guess is that's what you're hearing.
