White Peak 4 (net control) station calling White Peak 6 at 2242 UTC, then giving a general call for any other stations at 2243 UTC.  Nothing heard (at least by me and the net control station) for several minutes.  

0039 UTC - discussion of antenna and relaying information from net control station to another station
0040 UTC - reference to "headquarters antenna" and "southeast group antennas"
0041 UTC - further discussion of background noise at antenna installation, radio check with White Peak 30
0042 UTC - "spoke with the Group Commander the other night" - two stations talking about "White Peak 30" and extra transceivers
0042 UTC - talking about radios having the "new frequencies" programmed in an older transceiver
0043 UTC - further discussion of SWR readings on particular antenna system
0044 UTC - "put the other radio on and give a try, over" "we do not have a power cord for it" talk about swapping radios
0045 UTC - "I will have to tell him to talk louder" - stations on first name basis with each other
0046 UTC - ham radio like discussion about issues with old vs. new radio at one station

Sweet.  I've noticed lots of activity on that frequency in the past.  You wouldn't happen to have a list of the other regional frequencies?  I was in the Civil Air Patrol but most, if not all, of their HF frequencies have changed.  I do remember there being 4 MHz regional frequencies, and then several headquarters or nationwide frequencies on various bands, including 25 and 26 MHz frequencies and ALE systems.
