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.

Coastal Georgia Military Monitoring Recap; October 2018

I wasn't able to hear as much … Continue reading Coastal Georgia Military Monitoring Recap; October 2018

Coastal Georgia Military Monitoring Recap; September 2018

September was a busy and interesting, but bittersweet month of monitoring from the Coastal Georgia area. There was a lot to listen to, but partly for all of the wrong reasons because a fair portion of the activity heard was related to Hurricane Florence. Hurricane Hunter flights flew out of the Savannah Air Dominance Center … Continue reading Coastal Georgia Military Monitoring Recap; September 2018
