Coastal Georgia Military Monitoring Recap; July 2018

I didn’t have as much radio time during July as I would have liked, but none the less, it was certainly an interesting month. The big event of the month was a Sentry Savannah exercise out of the Georgia Air National Guard’s Air Dominance Center at the Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport. Later in the month, some AH-1Ws and UH-1Ys from HMLA-269 worked out of Savannah-Hilton Head IAP flying missions to Townsend Range.  July also saw another detachment of VMFT-401 F-5Ns at MCAS Beaufort as part of the F-35B training program. Some other interesting activity was E-2Cs from VAW-120 doing practice approaches in Savannah, urban Close Air Support training involving F-16s from Shaw AFB over Brunswick, GA, and F-15Es from Seymour-Johnson AFB working at Townsend Range. While not military, I caught a Boeing 747 Large Cargo Freighter (LCF) over the radio for the first time early one morning as one departed Boeing’s facility at Charleston for Anchorage, Alaska.

This month, I’ve also included some photos contributed by Paul Snedeker, KJ4FAV along with the callsign and frequency listings.
