E-6B GLEE 93 on 319.875 WBFM (digital) at 2232 UTC. Heading north out of middle Tennessee.

Awesome work, will have to put them into scan. These are kinda similar to the hf channel that used to get more USAF activity than it does now, 6761. That freq was treated like a party line for bombers, tankers, everyone.

On the presets, these vary according to the unit, each craft of a given unit will have the same presets.

That E-6B is also transmitting on 247.750 Digital WBFM (~ 700 kHz wide signal) 2010 UTC. 16JULY2019. The only other digital WBFM I've seen also came from a E-6B who was transmitting 338.950 (Analog) & 319.875 (Digital)

EAM-like messages have been heard in the 6765-7000 kHz region before, often with very strong signals and various operators (similar to what you've logged).

It could be MARS, or it could be military operator training or a communications/SIGINT exercise type deal.

It's a US Navy exercise. The same sort of exercise happens about 4 times a year. Different USN assets practice sending simulated EAMs.

E-6B BUSH 72 on 338.950 MHz (WBFM) & he just dropped the signal at 2021 UTC. I'm near central Kentucky.

No, he's still there. He may have switched to digital. There's a strong signal on 338.950, but no subcarriers are noted. 2025 UTC.

Thanks!

He (E-4B VIKING 18) flew just southwest of me then did a U turn back towards the NW. Still solid signal on 366.600. There are also a couple of E-6Bs out & about. PAID 85 bears watching, he's off to my northeast, but still out of UHF range.

Does it start everyone out at London?

Yes, you need to drag that marker to your location. You can zoom in via one of the satellite maps (ESRI World) & put that marker right on your house. You need to go to the menu then look at the general tab. Click on "Set current location" & a marker appears. Then click on "Show current location", uncheck "Set current location" & you should have a little blue ball at your home. After that you can set range circles & filter for military aircraft only, through the same menu, using the "Map" tab & the "Filters" tab.

Thanks for the details, and was just going to post that 337.3 lit up @ 1513Z today with modem traffic on orderwire pair.

The ADS-B site is a little flaky at times. They recently had to change from Google maps, due to costs, apparently, and for some reason, the site won't remember my range rings and location marker. I have to enable those each time I go to the web site. I'm sure there's a fix, but I really haven't had time to look at it.....I've just got too many projects and not enough "me"!

Cheater! Actually that's something I need to start doing. Do you do your own adsb receiving or do you use some webpage?
---
Go to this page: https://global.adsbexchange.com/VirtualRadar/desktop.html#

Then from Global Radar View go to Global Radar. Once you set your position, set up some range rings. I set mine at 50 mile intervals, out to a 300 mile distance. Then filter for only military aircraft & you're set. ADS-B doesn't always show E-4s & E-6s, sometimes they apparently turn off their equipment, but they show up enough to be really helpful. About 25 minutes ago, I saw a E-4B (COSTR 18) come up out of the SE & now I'm hearing him on 337.300.

Thanks for that, if I'd been thinking, I'd have scanned past the qsy to see if the other sig was still present and then I'd have known there were two flights.
---
Well, I was watching the flights on the ADS-B site, so I had some help!
