I drove out to Jekyll Island this morning to listen out for Savannah Sentry activity but it sounds like they’re taking the federal holiday today. It hasn’t been a total disappointment though, there have been a few interesting things to listen to. I’ve had several interesting snags on the DOD TRS used by NSB Kings Bay, NS Mayport, and NAS Jacksonville. I won’t go into details in this post, I’ll combine the info with some logs from last Friday and post a separate blog on it later. The most interesting traffic of the morning has been on 157.125 (Marine VHF Ch. 82) where NOAA 56 has been working with 14S, 53L, R/V Barber, R/V Orion, and R/V Hurricane to locate and track Right Whales. You can hear them passing coordinates, descriptions, behavior, and other information; it’s been quite interesting. For the most part, it’s the aircraft I’ve heard but from time to time I have been able to hear the research vessels. If you’re in the Brunswick area you might want to give it a listen; if you have antenna up a mast or tower you’ll probably hear it better than I have.

I'm an Amateur Radio Operator, Radio Monitoring enthusiast, History enthusiast, and very amateur nature/wildlife photography. Most of my amateur radio activity is voice because I mostly operate from a mobile station (listen out for me operating from Jekyll Island, IOTA NA-058). On the radio monitoring side of things, I enjoy listening to military aviation, Fire/EMS, and USCG/Federal comms. My History interests are varied and I enjoy reading about a wide variety of History and visiting historic sites. I take an interest in nature, wildlife, and the environment and particularly enjoy going to the National Wildlife Refuges in my area to take photos. Due to my job, I split time between Savannah and Brunswick, GA View all posts by KF4LMT
