Heard in Richmond, VA around 11:00 local time (1600 UTC).

Here is some of the transmissions caught on video:

Note that the receiver in question (RadioShack Pro-651, also known as the Pro-106, GRE PSR-500 and Whistler WS1040) decodes the PL tone (CTCSS tone, tone squelch) as 151.4 Hz.  They are using 150.0 Hz, but 150.0Hz is not a civilian tone so its not included in any of these types of radios...and 151.4Hz is the closest to 150 Hz. 

This is the best I've heard Fort Hood Range Control in a while.

Thanks for this post as I now am receiving something from them almost every day. Many years ago I used to hear them here in SoCal so
it's great to catch them again.
