AAR ongoing on 291.900MHz 1514Z 22MAY18.
PEACH 88 and unid presumed HAPPY 61 tanker doing aar.There are two tankers and their partners in the track.

61; Back four
PEACH 88; Moving back.

61; Up four.
61; Forward four.
61; 61 disconnect!

61; 88 we're clear to do another 45 minutes.
PEACH 88; great thanks.


PEACH 88 resolves to PEACH/PEACHTREE OPS 116th/461st ACW CP GA ANG WARNER-ROBBINS GA
meaning the ac in question is likely a E-8 J-STARS .

61's 59-1444 tail number resolves to a KC-135R tanker, made in 1959.

AAR ongoing on 343.250MHz 1500Z 23MAY18. 343.250 is possibly designating Ar 315 as the refueling track involved. From this map of ar tracks you can see Ar 315 covers most of Kentucky east to west;

06 unid ac
51 presumed tanker
If you don't catch them as they meet up and discuss the training needs for the day you might never hear their actual callsign or the juicy tail numbers that id a particular ac.

51; did you guys get a contact light on that?
06; negative.

51; what are you guys looking for today?
06; contacts, breakaways, clear asterns.

06; stable ready
51; clear to contact
06; clear to contact

06; we're doing a seat swap.

Air to ground gunnery training, 377.300MHz 1800Z 29MAY18. Presumed Camp Atterbury in use as Jefferson Range seems to be for uav training. However no jet noise or o2 mask sounds apparent so these guys may be operating a drone. Lots of refs to ground target locations, etc.

Air to air comms 225.625MHz 1744Z 25JUN18

Two om stations - seem to be wearing o2 masks and slight jet noise in background so may be fighters, no calls noted so far, talking about college, air force, etc commentary. I think they mentioned something about Nashville center. Obviously they're within earshot of sw Indiana however they're just breaking squelch.
