AR307A 264.9MHz 22 Mar 2019 from 1900z; KC-135T refuel C-17A until los
Most times & frequencies posted are only an approximation.
Due to adulteration of the E.N.I.G.M.A. "designators" by others and not a match in the Conet Project they are never used.

Heads up, 6 to 8 B52s headed for RAF Fairford for TDY deployment 15MAR19. Should allow for some comms intercepts on uhf and hf.


And now we know why they went;

The US Air Force has conducted 7 flights over the Baltic Sea within 10 days, the Russian Defence Ministry said in a statement.

Earlier today there was activity on AICC (364.200) as well as local air refuel ops. The refueling operation mentioned Pocket City, in other words USAF slang for Evansville Indiana, some 60 miles from me. Stations went unid as I was in and out of consciousness.

Prior to this activity, HAVE QUICK pips were copied, apparently from an AWACS within reception range.

Also on AICC was station UNIFORM THUMPER (Presumed E-3C 970th AWACS, Tinker AFB OK)  calling STARGATE (E-8C JSTARS 330th CTS  BACK END) for a comms check. Various AWACS and JSTARS comms took place such as lat and long coords being passed, target tracks, etc.

Unid air to air on 271.400 1800Z 09APR19
Seems to be at least two ac, likely A10 or fighters as pilots have mask and jet noise in background, references to tasking and whatnot.

 AAR AR-101 327.600 1818Z 23APR19
327.600 is pri for AR110 (among others) crossing southern Missouri, closest track with this listed pri. Also Missouri is home to the entire B-2 fleet.

DEATH 11 (B-2A, 509th BW, Whiteman AFB MO)
DEATH 12 (B-2A, 509th BW, Whiteman AFB MO)
DEATH 13 (B-2A, 509th BW, Whiteman AFB MO)

ATLAS 22 (Tanker? not listed under tanker callsigns)

That being said, multiple A10 squadrons use DEATH and ATLAS as callsigns.

Setting up the track for refuel ops @ 29000ft and fadeout, presume on the far side of Missouri right now.

Possible drone work on 225.625 ongoing @ 2017Z 07MAY19, references made of these things;
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Atomics_MQ-9_Reaper

Mentions of good old Indiana, Terre Haute (about 50 miles north of me), and tracks and etc and so on and so forth.
"tell them you are 20 miles east of Evansville" (Evansville 60 miles south)

"Come up to 377.12." (377.12 is Camp Atterbury MOA)

"Afirm in the climb two six zero."

"They probably terminated it once we got into the restricted area"

"They probably didn't like the delay" (this I think gives it away as drone operators as there's a delay involved when a drone is in direct contact with civilian flight operations yet the drone operator communications is delayed due the satellite link to the drone)

"About 3700 pounds of everything"
"Showing 27 knots out of the southwest"

Another giveaway is there will be no mask noise or jet sound in the background since the audio is generated by uav pilots in a comfy air conditioned and finely appointed ground control station. The drone simply relays the comms between the local flight controllers the drone is in range of, and the remote pilot.
