South Carolina/North Carolina Road Trip Scanning Report; 8-10 January 2019

Yesterday, I left Charlotte, NC for Columbia, SC to visit the Riverbanks Zoo and Gardens and the South Carolina Military Museum. Afterward, I came back to Savannah, ending the trip. I’ll be posting about the places I visited on the trip over the next few days: Musgrove Mill State Park, the BMW Zentrum, the Greenville Zoo, the Carolinas Aviation Museum, the North Carolina Transportation Museum, Riverbanks Zoo, and the South Carolina Military Museum. The list below builds on the previous two days to cover the entire trip through the Clinton, Greenville, Spartanburg, Charlotte, and Columbia areas. Yesterday, without a doubt was the best military monitoring day of the trip since I was close to both McEntire JNGB and Shaw AFB. I was able to firm up some 20th FW air-to-air frequencies that I’ve been tracking: 262.000 for the 77th FS and 270.900 at 276.150 for the 79th FS. I was also able to hear some VMFAT-501 F-35Bs from Beaufort doing pattern work at Shaw AFB. I was hoping to hear some activity on the Shaw AFB P25 TRS, but all I heard were a few transmissions on what RadioReference lists as the Police talkgroup. Most of the unencrypted traffic that I heard from Fort Jackson on the US Army P25 TRS was range control type traffic.

Yesterday, my string of good luck in choosing restaurants continued. After visiting the zoo, I found an Italian restaurant, Delucca’s Italian Grill, nearby and went there for lunch. It’s a small restaurant in a small strip of stores, but it is very much worth a visit. The food is outstanding and the owner likes Blues music – so that’s what they have playing. The prices aren’t bad, either; I filled up on Chicken Parmesan with tea for $12.
