377.300 AM Air to ground gunnery @ 1829Z 08FEB19

"I'd like one to lead in with guns and two to come in with dry bombs.

Now I'd like to talk about targets, tanks near that large ball of dirt, and we'll get the people too.

Egress the target area and do a type three on the target area, number one will be 30 mike mike followed up by two with jdams, air burst, off right to south.

Good hits on the SA8!

Good splash!

Guns ready.

HARD ROCK, we have to leave in about two minutes, I'd like to empty my guns"


etc

Presumed A10s or F16s working at Camp Atterbury.

Some light reading on the effects of nuclear fireballs on radio propagation;
https://apps.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/a044561.pdf
https://apps.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/427020.pdf


This is interesting;
"High-altitude nuclear tests were made in 1958 and 1962 at different heights above the mid-Pacific area. Observations reveal MF and HF propagation anomalies caused by H-bomb-induced ionisation in the ionospheric D region, the effect on which varied with burst height of the explosion.
Periods of abnormal ionisation in the F region at Rarotonga after both of the explosions in 1958 are ascribed by Cummack and King (1959) to an upward movement of gas into the F region, where high compression ratios following the blast wave resulted in ionisation by collision. Abnormal F-region ionisation at the Pacific control point enabled enhanced reception in Wellington of 25 Mc/s and 21 Mc/s transmissions for several hours after the 1958 events. Similar enhancement of transmissions on 21 Mc/s-s
the highest frequency then in use by the BBC-was again observed following the July 1962 explosion."

AAR 327.600 AM 1716Z 22FEB19
Getting set up, multiple ac, one call is DEATH 11 and he is grossly distorted so presume a B2 per dear friend autovon.

"squawk 2728

DEATH 11 copy my block yada yada yada wtfbbq

he's currently at 275

he's pushing up"

I can see how a B2 isn't a quiet plane, two guys forced to wear masks in a tiny cockpit and 4 jet engines operating mere yards away seems uncomfortable.

AAR 327.600 AM 0000Z 26FEB19

INDY 83
KC-135R 434th ARW, AFRC Grissom ARB, IN

DEATH 21
Likely B2 as the pilot sounds like he has a literal kazoo for a mic.

"Squawking 3167

We're 2:20 late

We'll slow down as much as possible for you to catch up

We're at your six o'clock overtaking now

INDY 83 clear astern

clear astern DEATH 21"

327.600 is primary working freq for tracks AR109L and AR110, 110 stretches across southern MO so likely 110 in use.
