20th Fighter Wing UHF Air-to-Air Update

Brunswick – Last week, I posted about the 20th Fighter Wing moving to UHF air-to-air frequencies from VHF. I got some good feedback from readers offering what they’ve heard, so I thought I would post an updated list:

228.800 – 55th FS Air-to-Air
236.150 – 55th FS Air-to-Air

274.875 – 77th FS Air-to-Air
314.100 – 77th FS Air-to-Air

276.150 – possible 79th FS Air-to-Air

228.275 – reported in use by 20th FW F-16s
242.000 – reported in use by 20th FW F-16s
259.900 – reported in use by 20th FW F-16s
270.900 – reported in use by 20th FW F-16s

384.550 – F-16 Demo Team

I’ll be keeping an ear on the possible 79th FS and 20th FW Air-to-Airs in an attempt to help confirm and ID the squadron using them. Thanks to Jared Soergel on Twitter and Scannerman2016 by email for the feedback and information; if I get any more or are able to find anything further, I’ll post another update.

20th Fighter Wing F-16s Moving From VHF to UHF for Air-to-Air Frequencies

Savannah – Last month, I got a post comment from a reader mentioning the lack of activity on VHF air-to-air frequencies from 20th Fighter Wing F-16CMs from Shaw AFB working in the Bulldog MOA. I’d been noticing the same trend over the course of this year as well so I’ve been searching when home in Savannah (I don’t receive activity from Shaw F-16s from Brunswick due to its distance from their usual operating areas). So far I’ve found a couple of UHF air-to-airs for the 55th Fighter Squadron and the 77th Fighter Squadron but none yet for the 79th Fighter Squadron:

228.800 – 55th FS Air-to-Air
236.150 – 55th FS Air-to-Air

274.875 – 77th FS Air-to-Air
314.100 – 77th FS Air-to-Air

I’ll keep on searching when I’m in Savannah and post updates as I find anything. If anyone else happens to find some UHF air-to-air frequencies for the Shaw F-16s, post them in the comments, tweet them to me, post them on the Facebook page, or send me an email at kf4lmt @ gmail.

Coastal Georgia Military Monitoring Recap; October 2018

October was another bittersweet monitoring month. There was good listening, but it was tempered by the devastation wrought by Hurricane Michael upon the Florida Panhandle and Southwest Georgia. Luckily, Coastal Georgia escaped Michael’s wrath, but it did cause hurricane evacuations by Gulfstream aircraft and 165th Airlift Wing C-130s. I wasn’t able to hear as much of the activity as I did with Hurricane Florence, but military aircraft including C3I and ISR resources such as the MC-12s at Hunter provided support in the aftermath of Michael. In better news, the 21st Fighter Squadron and 14th Fighter Training Wing continued their late September training into early October. As I posted during the month, MCAS Beaufort F/A-18s and F-15Cs from Jacksonville IAP did some very interesting air-to-ground combat training in the Coastal MOA and at Townsend Range during the month as well.

Note:  In addition to posting Blog Posts and near-real-time reports on Twitter, I am now also using a Facebook page to put out scanning, history, and photography information. If you’re interested, you can follow KF4LMT’s Radio Shack on Facebook.

Please keep the people of the Florida panhandle and southwest Georgia in your prayers and help with donations or contributions as you can. Many will remain out of their homes for quite a while and have lost most if not all of what they had.

Coastal Georgia Mode-S Log; October 2018

Mode-S hits from Military, Government, and Public Safety related aircraft as well as various other aircraft that catch my attention from attended monitoring of my RadarBox in Savannah and RadarBox Micro in Brunswick, GA.

Note:  In addition to posting Blog Posts and near-real-time reports on Twitter, I am now also using a Facebook page to put out scanning, history, and photography information. If you’re interested, you can follow KF4LMT’s Radio Shack on Facebook.

A Sunday Afternoon Visit to the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge

Savannah – It had been a few weeks since I had the chance to visit the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge; since yesterday afternoon’s weather was so beautiful, I took advantage of it and visited the refuge. Alligators were out sunning, the wading birds were out doing their thing, and there were even a few deer out and about (unfortunately, none that I could get a photo of). There was even an American Bittern sighting. The last time I visited in late September, there were a few Blue Wing Teal and what looked to be a couple of Ringneck Ducks already arrived for migratory waterfowl season, but on this visit, there were only a few American Coots to be seen. As far as other migratory birds go, Northern Harriers have made their arrival to the refuge as well. Most folks may love Spring and Summer, but I love Autumn and Winter when things cool down, the leaves begin to fall and the grass thins out making the wildlife easier to see, and the migratory birds arrive. It’s just about my favorite time of the year!
