As I posted on social media a few days ago, I won’t be doing a January MilCom Recap or Mode-S log. I’ve been busy with work, was down with the sinuses, and have also been busy trying to get ready for a vacation trip next week. In the meantime, there are some updates to pass along regarding some new USAF or ANG air-to-air frequencies, an MCAS Beaufort air-to-air, and a MilAir page update for Moody AFB.
Over the holidays, the 125th FW was heard working with the 20th FW in the Bulldog MOA in Central/East Georgia. During that activity, both Jim (also here inGA) and I heard some new air-to-air frequencies in use. Jim as identified them as 125th FW air-to-air frequencies while I’m leaning toward them being new 20th FW frequencies; either way, they were definitely in use and it will be worth listening to them to confirm an ID on them. Those new frequencies are 228.275, 236.150, 262.000, and 267.600.
A South Florida source passed on via the blog’s Facebook page that VMFA-251 was heard using 267.250 while working at NAS Key West over the holidays. That’s one that I haven’t heard used by VMFA-251 or any unit at MCAS Beaufort before, but I’ve programmed it in my radios and will be listening out for it in the future.
Finally, a while back a very reliable source passed on some Moody AFB information but I haven’t had the chance to do anything with it until recently. That information has been incorporated into this blog’s MilAir page.
Next week, I’ll be traveling through South Carolina so keep an eye out for travel and mobile scanning posts. Hopefully, I’ll be able to figure out some more about those new USAF air-to-air frequencies during my travels…
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I’d like to thank those that passed on information over the course of the year and I hope you’ll continue to support this blog with your efforts.
