UPSET 72 calling JOSHUA CONTROL
321.00MHz 1940Z 02JAN18

JOSHUA CONTROL resolves to;
 412th TW, Edwards AFB, CA (approach)

UPSET resolves to;
 KC-135R 128th ARG, WI ANG Milwaukee, WI

I don't get it. If Joshua control is in CA, and UPSET 72 is a KC135, they must be wayyyy tf up there for UPSET 72 to be calling CA and I can hear them in south Indiana. I was thinking this must be a U2, SR71, or other high flyer/fast mover up around FL80 or higher..
None of this makes sense.

UPSET 72 might have been an experimental AC, one of the fast movers that like to fly just slightly lower than going into orbit. It'd be sexy if this was a project aurora bird.

DTMF and dial tones as well as ssb voice traffic, likely link setup/drop/qsy ongoing.

EAM over 325.400MHz, very weak sig, callsign started with R, something like Rasp Eater, 1800Z. Neacp/tacamo/glass flight burning mux on 383.550MHz 1816Z 20JAN18

Pretty sure they're sending short message fsk KG84 traffic on the orderwire pair. Don't recall fsk in use on Northstar before but they can send any mode they have the modems for, i imagine most mil modems have fsk as well as support for KG84 devices.

Modem traffic on one or both orderwires.
