Royal Danish Air Force C-130J Conducted Parachute Drops Near Savannah

Savannah – Yesterday, a Royal Danish Air Force C-130J conducted parachute drops in the area of Tybee Island near Savannah, GA. It appears it was part of Exercise Emerald Warrior 2019, a US Special Operations Command exercise that combines Special Operations and Conventional forces to prepare for operations “in a complex and uncertain Irregular Warfare security environment.” While doing some web research on why a Danish C-130 might have been in Savannah, I came upon a gallery of DVIDS images that included the aircraft working with units at Hurlburt Field.

Emerald Warrior provides annual realistic and relevant pre- deployment training encompassing multiple joint operating areas to prepare Special Operations Forces, Conventional Force enablers, Partner Nations and Interagency elements to integrate with and execute full spectrum Special Operations in a complex and uncertain Irregular Warfare security environment using all aspects of live, virtual, and constructive training assets.

Given that it was a federal holiday, I wasn’t expecting to hear much on the radios while I was in Savannah for a doctor’s appointment. I didn’t, but at least Danish C-130J conducting parachute drops made part of what I did hear very interesting. CRUSHER 31 (C-130J, B-536, Esk 721 Royal Danish AF) departed Savannah-Hilton Head Airport yesterday and headed out toward Tybee Island, telling Savannah Approach Control on 120.400 that they would be conducting parachute drops in the Savannah Beach area. Throughout the operation, they made “Jumpers in the Air” with Approach Control as well. I quickly put one of my radios in search mode and found them on 245.750 working DZ to coordinate the drops. After the drops were complete, CRUSHER 31 departed the area cleared to Hurlburt Field, which meshes with the information I came across in my web search.

MDTC Underway at MCAS Beaufort

Savannah – Yesterday morning’s monitoring indicated that there’s MDTC (Marine Division Tactics Course) underway at MCAS Beaufort. An MDTC usually takes place in January and this year seems to be no different. Flights of MAG-31 F/A-18s using the callsigns LATCH and SALEM (callsigns traditionally used by MDTC flights at MCAS Beaufort) and VMFAT-501 F-5Ns using the callsign VIPER were working in offshore SUAs yesterday morning. I didn’t hear SALEMs, LATCHes, or SNIPERs on Friday, so I’m guessing the MDTC flying started yesterday and will likely continue through the rest of the month.

If you’re interested in listening to the activity, here’s what I heard in use yesterday morning:

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

I’m on the first day of a three-day trip through parts of South Carolina and North Carolina. Today’s travels took me through the Clinton, Greenville, and Spartanburg areas. I was originally planning to visit the Ninety Six battlefield today, but since it is closed due to the government shutdown, I visited the Musgrove Mill State Park in Clinton, SC, the BMW Zentrum in Spartanburg, SC, and the Greenville Zoo in Greenville, SC.

I let the Uniden Home Patrol 2 and the Whistler TRX-2 scan, log, and record while I did the driving and both were very productive. There was a lot of VHF/UHF public safety conventional and a lot of public safety activity on the Palmetto 800 P25 statewide trunked repeater system in South Carolina. F-16s from the 20th FW and the 169th FW were heard working in the Bulldog MOA and at Poinsett Range and 20th FW F-16s were also working in W-161/177 with an E-3 AWACS. There were a couple of surprises, too – with the government shutdown in effect, I didn’t expect to hear any National Park Service or US Forestry activity, but there were a few brief catches on some of their frequencies.

For supper tonight, I stopped at Southern Barbecue in Spartanburg. I love North Carolina style vinegar based barbecue and Southern Barbecue is the best I’ve had since Don’s BBQ in Pooler, GA closed. If you find yourself around I-85 and US-221 in Spartanburg, it’s well worth the stop for great food and friendly service.

Coastal Georgia Military Monitoring Recap; November 2018

The month of November was a bit short on activity due to the Thanksgiving Holiday, but it did turn out to be rather productive: new frequencies for both MCAS Beaufort and Shaw AFB were identified over this month and last.

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.

Coastal Georgia MilAir Information Page Updated

Over the last week or so, I’ve been working on revising and updating this blog’s MilAir page. I’ve finally finished this round of revisions and updates and it’s ready to go. I’ve changed the format a bit, added what I have for Robins AFB and Moody AFB, and expanded some of the bases that were already on the page. Savannah-Hilton Head IAP and Charleston IAP are also homes to a Gulfstream factor and service center and a Boeing facility respectively, so I added what I have for them as well. It’s not meant to be a comprehensive list; it essentially covers what can be heard from the Coastal Georgia area (Savannah, Hinesville, and Brunswick) and the I-95 corridor through Georgia.
