I have noticed over the last few months that I am not hearing A-10's from the 442nd FW on their standard set of UHF air to air frequencies. I have heard pieces of frequency hopping HAVEQUICK traffic that may very well be the 442nd. My searched for new frequencies have not yielded any results. Does anyone know if they have switched frequencies or are operating HAVEQUICK full time now? Thanks for any input.

Very doubtful that they're on HQ more than for occasional training. They probably switched frequencies. Try these:
148.500
225.625
226.900
248.650
253.250

If you can't find them there, they may be on VHF-FM. That's what happened with Fort Wayne - they disappeared for a few weeks and I eventually found them using low band for interflight.

For reference, here's what I have for their presets from 2008:
138.125 (ops)
138.400
139.625
139.800
149.100
149.250
149.525
227.800 (ops)
228.575
229.175
235.125
238.575
245.250

What are the freqs FT Wayne, 122FW uses now? It seems MO, MI, and IN A10s have all changed freqs. The 442FW shared 138.6 & 139.75 with the 122FW.
Thanks

MI A-10 A/A freqs

273.250 Demon 11 A/A
326.400 Tejas 21 A/A
307.775 Yalta 31 A/A
349.900 aft radio A/A

Not sure if these are still good?
368.000 Bosun 41 A/A
314.400 Howdy 51 A/A

The Selfridge A-10's are using many different callsigns now.
I don't know how long they have been doing that.
Also the A-10's have changed their button freqs. As far as I can tell
they moved all freqs down one spot.

I have proscan hits/recordings of most all of those (except the vhf) within the last few days but I don't know if they are A-10s. I don't have the vhf in there but need to add them. I used to hear them on vhf in the 90s but at some point they seemed to abandon them. Do you have current activity on the vhf stuff?

Post a recording. I can probably identify if it's an A-10. Very unique sound to the radios.

I live a few miles outside the main gate of Fort Leonard Wood, MO...and I hear quite a lot of mil air traffic here due to the military operation areas (MOA). I wonder if some of it comes from Whiteman? I'll start paying more attention.

i think 368.0 is 365.65 now and 314.4 is being used for a secured channel as well as 293.1
