11m and 10m are both extremely busy.  Checking VHF low band now...noted Fort Hood Range Control on 30.450 MHz FM 30.450 FM.  Good signals.

Thanks for posting the Fort Hood range frequency!! Great to know it is still active.

I had received it way in the past but forgot to add it to my current scan list. I have a Icom R-7100 that is solely programmed with my attached list. Receive antenna is a Cobham COM201B VHF (30-88 MHz) Antenna, often fielded by the USMC.

Awesome logs - and reference frequencies.  It's pretty cool how much use they make of the 54-88 MHz frequencies, especially the 60 MHz and 70 MHz region, which I imagine is pretty darn clear now.

Also, that antenna is kickass.  30-88 MHz.  Love it.  Reminds me of a discone design. 

There seems to be a lot more usage of 30-88 MHz (or even just 30-50 MHz) than you'd think.  I often read the RadioReference.com forums (there's a nice long VHF low band logs thread, one per year, keeps things nice and searchable) and there is a lot of VHF low band military activity, especially in the lower portions (below 35 MHz or 40 MHz or so..although the 40-42 MHz band is the biggest chunk of military/government frequency allocation within the 30-50 MHz low band).  Lots of 30 MHz, 31 MHz, 32 MHz, 34 MHz and random frequencies that are within the land mobile bands.
