Since I missed hearing about the dropping of the 15,000 pound bomb last week http://www.af.mil/news/story.asp?id=123107470 , I've decided to devote some radio space to monitoring the ranges. And good thing I did. Just heard some comms about a Cruise Missle test that will be occuring out there today. Also have Stinger (F-16 from Ca ANG), Spider (F-16 388 FW HAFB), Viper (F-16 388 FW HAFB), and Rancid (unk) working the ranges.
I've posted freqs that I've heard in use out there in other threads, so if your interested, look 'em up. Sometimes it gets interesting out there in the desert.

Can you copy the comms back in the Salt Lake valley? I have never bothered as I figured I am out of range.

I might be able to pick some stuff up at my office (by Salt Lake International) but my home in South Jordan is probably out of luck...

I am able to copy most of the Aircraft comms (A-A & A-G) but nothing from the ground itselve, except thru the "Wasatch Front Federal" Trunk System. Site 4 is copyable in the valley and handles most of the Training Ranges comms.

The UT&TR is about to get very busy. Looks like a good chance to really try and pick out some mil air comms in this area.

....During the three-week event - ending Aug. 22 - four units will deploy to Hill and six units will travel directly to the Utah Test and Training Range to drop munitions in realistic combat scenarios. ...

In addition to the UHF freqs and the VHF freqs (AM) don't forget to listen to the Wasatch Front Trunk system, site 04. Most of the trunk comms are Digital. A lot of the Range use coordination is done on the trunking system.

Military & MilAir updates available

:) For the benefit of all the 'Range Rovers' :wink: who monitor this forum,
Check the database for the latest military and MilAir updates.
I submitted every file I had on the military.
I can't claim all the credit for the info. Other members like
Junior, Jon, Gary Moore, J Weisbeck, and others helped discover this info.
I just collected it and submitted it.
I'll share a private message with the group:

Thanks for the great military lists. With that input I did a reorganization and moved all the conventional military groups to a single statewide page with links in the appropriate county pages. I also renamed Wasatch Front Federal to Utah Military since that seems more accurate on all counts.

Check how I set up the frequencies and descriptions and let me know if any changes are needed. (The Alpha Tags are limited to 12 characters, and I tried to make those more descriptive.) I also eliminated the old Tooele Army Depot group since by all accounts those frequencies were a thing of the past. I can add those back if needed. Thanks for your excellent contributions. It's nice to get a good handle on Utah's unique military sites! Tim.
