Here are the VHF/UHF milair frequencies I've been able to log so far this month.  I'm new to milair, so I'll be able to give better logs once I figure out what they're saying.   ;D  Hopefully a log of frequency use in the area is useful.

This is from my QTH in WA state near Seattle.  Diamond Discone @ 25' , BC780XLT, ProScan software

225.5750
227.8500
227.8750
234.5500
245.3250
249.4250
249.9000
256.7000
257.8000
270.3000
273.6000
285.6500
306.9000
307.6500
309.2250
341.7000
342.6000
349.4000
350.1000
351.1250
354.9500
363.3000
364.6000
QTH: 30mi East of Seattle  Staticbox / "RST111 WA" on 11m. I will eQSL

HF: IC-R75, Afedri SDR, Stridsberg HF Multicoupler, MFJ-1020C, Palomar CMNF-6, 100ft N/S longwire

VHF/UHF: Pro-2006, BC-XLT70, BR330T, BC-780XLT, BCD536HP, BCT-8, RTL-SDR, Stridsberg Multicoupler, Diamond Discone

This is an excellent resource for mil air;

Thanks for the freqs, do you use the 2006 for mil air? The 2006 was my first mil air rx back in the day, good enough to catch satcoms sitting on the kitchen counter with just the factory whip antenna screwed into the case.

No, right now the 2006 is next to my bed with a whip scanning the local HAM repeaters.  I've been using the 780XLT attached to the outside antenna to search for milair because the software will record the frequencies it finds.  Back in the day, I had a pro-2035 (I think that's the model) with an optoelectronics board in it.  I bought it used for that purpose because I couldn't deal with the thought of carving up my 2006 to put the opto board in.  :o

I will probably use the 2006 for milair once I get a cache of frequencies.  I also plan to make and use an antenna tuned for that band (right now I'm using a discone).

Sounds like you know your way around. Likewise I refused to cut up my 2006 for the same reason, however it did do very well at mil air. Always wanted to add some foil to its insides to block rf, shame they didn't make metal cases for it like they did with the 2004. Lol still have all the Bill Cheek scanner mod books sitting here, have to look them over. Likewise I need to get some antennae for dedicated mil air, a turnstyle for the sats and a discone cut for 220 to 400. I've also considered a off center fed vertical dipole for 220/400 as they have low swr every other MHz when designed for hf, perhaps even better bandwidth at uhf and are less fiddly to build than a discone, however it's not too hard to cut down the typical v/uhf discone for the band in question. Also been prodding a manufacturer I know to roll out a 220 to 400 bandpass filter that should help in high power v/uhf signal areas

6150 working SENTRY31, 6150 is at FL2000 and slowing to 271, shutting off IFF and relating that ATC was not happy about that, going to FL500, apparently SENTRY31 (E-3B AWACS 964th AACS/552nd ACW Tinker AFB) is testing some electronic doodad. 343.25MHz 1550Z 24May17.

AWACS often show up on SIPRNET/NIPRNET ALE here but not copied so far today, when they do they have a callsign like MOBDAT or DLOODAT.
