Utility / Re: EAM? 6988 USB 2324 UTC 3 Oct 2017
« on: November 08, 2018, 2132 UTC »
Heard two of them today (8 Nov2018). Station IDed as "Q0D" (second character "zero"). Sounds exactly like an HFGCS EAM, but there was no parallel activity on the normal HFGCS frequencies. Could this be Canadian military? Googling doesn't produce any info for me.

Those are USN assets participating in a exercise. a large number of frequencies have been in use since this morning. 12082.0 & 7498.0 were active a few minutes ago, both USB voice.

6778.0 was just active with 8UN sending a EAM. 2125 UTC.

I had a feeling it was MARS or military in origin.  I've heard data transmissions on 6907 USB in the past so that also makes sense.

I forgot to mention, the data transmissions are generally MIL-STD 188-110A, but it's encrypted almost all of the time.

Of course 6765.0, 6845.0 & 6910.0 are primary SHARES Regional frequencies. Since some MARS stations participate in SHARES, you'll hear them there, during SHARES nets. 6910.0 is also a MARS ALE frequency. Other MARS frequencies in the range you asked about, include 6907.0 (already noted), 6818.5, 6850.5, 6913.0, 6968.5 (already noted) & 6996.0. I don't normally follow MARS much except during their national exercises, so I may have missed one or two. 6913.0 may or may not be a current frequency. The last note on it I have was from a couple of years ago. All frequencies are USB. I feel like I'm missing some USAF MARS freqs between 6700.0 & 6800.0, but I'm drawing a blank right now....

Those are US Army MARS ALE addresses. 6907.0 is one of a number of USA MARS ALE frequencies.

It's been on 8 MHz tonight (0250-0300 UTC) July 20, 2018. Frequencies were 8164.0, 8154.0, 8189.0, 8224.0, 8194.0, 8184.0, 8144.0, 8164.0, 8159.0, 8229.0, 8174.0, 8164.0 & on & on, jumping around every few seconds, but staying longer on some frequencies.

22
Airborne Command Post aircraft, likely E-6Bs or maybe a E-6B & a ground station. These type comms are heard here often, generally moving here from 11175.0 as one station enters the net. IIRC, this is called the CHARLIE ECHO window.

There are also TELCO stations that check into the nets. TELCO stations have an important NS/EP (National Security/Emergency Preparedness) role in disaster communications.

A few years ago, I copied some Canadian aviation traffic there. Aircraft 04 working Flight Following for weather conditions at Canadian locations. Another listener had a Speed Air flight on that frequency, too.

What's always been fun for me, when monitoring the SHARES network, is copying some obscure & rarely heard US Government stations. Years ago, there was a SHARES exercise involving a USAF NAOC (National Airborne Operations Center) E-4B aircraft, in flight. The aircraft used a tactical call, FE9 (Foxtrot Echo 9) & "polled" stations as they attempted contact. As you can imagine, there was just a huge group of stations trying to contact the aircraft!

There actually isn't a SHARES West, although some stations still use that term. SHARES has a Southwest Net that takes in California & a SHARES Northwest Net. You can hear 14402.0 used as the SHARES Northwest frequency & again, they will sometimes reference it as SHARES West. As a matter of fact, 14402.0 is active as of 1716 UTC today (11 OCT 2017).

SHARES NW uses 5429.0 & 14402.0 & SHARES SW uses 7403.5. These are daytime frequencies.

KGG83A is a FBI station out of Winchester, VA.

28
14396.5 is the SHARES ADMIN net & runs on Wednesdays just like the SHARES regional nets.
