Singing, talk of good food, bourbon, and pressure readings between at least two pilots in presumed single seat fighters due to mask and jet sounds.

Russian Volna uhf sat up/downlink info;
Up 335 - 399MHz
Down 240 - 328MHz

Dunno if volnas are still flying, perhaps the same bandplan is still in use on current birds. Russia isn't bit on milsats for comms as they know the first to go in ww3 will be the birds.

Is 303.000 MHz akin to 123.450 MHz on the VHF air band?  Sort of the air-to-air chat frequency?  I can see who it would be easy to remember - 303.000 = "thirty thirty" or "three oh three"?   I bet 345.600 MHz, 357.000 MHz, 308.000 MHz and similar are also used?

If I caught the tx that means it was preprogrammed into the scanner currently in use, meaning it was confirmed as an active freq by me as well as others. Sadly I didn't bother to use alphanumerics to label the channel, argh!

More to your point, I agree this is likely a cb channel for convoys, but I'd have to double check the db to see what it's listed as.

I did some Googling and apparently there are several of these frequencies in use for air-to-air chat, similar to the way civilian pilots use 123.450 MHz and 123.475 MHz.

They include, but aren't limited to:

234.500 MHz - "Straight"
234.550 MHz - "Straight 5"
299.500 MHz - "Cheap Suit"
300.600 MHz - "Thirty aught Six"
303.000 MHz - "Thirty Thirty" "Winchester" or "Three Oh Three"
303.050 MHz - "Winchester 5"
333.000 MHz - "Triple 3”
333.300 MHz - “Quad 3”
333.550 MHz - “Full House”
345.600 MHz - "Straight" (see also: 234.5 MHz)
351.000 MHz - Haircut
357.000 MHz - "Magnum"
384.500 MHz - "Pistol"
399.950 MHz - "Penthouse"

It seems like specific units have others, often nearby these (for example, there's a "Magnum 5", 357.050 MHz), and others.  Of course, there are the specific units' present channels, often referred to us "push 3" or "button 3" for preset 3, for example.  There's also the 137-144 MHz and 148-150 MHz ranges for AM air to air voice.
