Calls like SPARE RIB and the like are going to be per-mission or time based, in this case an E6 tacamo flight, where GRAPE VINE is the ground callsign of the station handling HFGCS comms to/from tacamo flights, perhaps Tinker AFB.

FARM BOY, PATHOLOGY, and COOL AIR are per-mission callsigns for the mux GEP, Ground Entry Points where the tacamo has a full duplex mux system in operation; the tacamo flight sends wideband fm uhf mux dowlink on one freq, the uplinked GEP sends on another freq. As the tacamo orbits, it loses contact with one GEP and switches to the other as it comes within range. These calls may never be used again but who knows.
