Might have been a Canadian NORAD contingent. Wouldn't surprise me to find more Canadian participation in these exercises, also E6s are possibly working with P8s to a degree, thickening the plot.

"In the red" means they're using unencrypted voice as opposed to "going green" ie ANDVT or more modern voice encryption on hf.

Bank Loan looking to check into a net

Twin Bed responded twice but not heard by Bank Loan

Bank Loan self checks into the net with authentication Tango November at 1833Z

Both signals loud and clear here on my NRD-525 receiver

For the newbs;
BANK LOAN would be an E6 TACAMO (USN) or E4 NIGHTWATCH (USAF) checking into the NCA (National Command Authority) net on HF, they will also have a parallel network running on MILSTAR (EHF/laser satellite, use of this sat will be the obvious when the ac is offshore any real distance as some flights venture out off the coasts) and/or ground/air UHF MUX.

TWIN BED would be the current callsign of the corresponding ground comms unit supporting NCA flights via sat, UHF MUX and HF.

Some of these birds can take control of entire missile wings to launch ICBMs if needed, these flights will have to be within UHF range of the wings in question to exert control. Otherwise the flights orbit a loop (to keep that miles long trailing wire VLF antenna as vertical as possible) near a string of GEPs (Ground Entry Points) that have UHF MUX duplex capabilities including a T1 or better innernet line. The flights that venture out over the oceans will be using HF, MILSTAR, and as always VLF to the SSBNs patrolling the world.

:D

Any idea why the Skyking messages have ceased on HF?
There have been around 3 known Skyking messages for all of this year.

     Josh, do you have a source one can use for identifying the various call signs?  For example, Drysands is heard this morning at 17:00 UTC.   Thanks!    73,  Walt in Victoria, BC

There have been notedly less skykings of late and that is actually a good thing.
I expect these flights to be done more with unmanned assets than ever before, and those that are manned will likely be kept far enough away from their elint targets to not trigger a reaction from said target. Reason being, the cia guy what planned eliminating that Iranian general in Iraq was allegedly shot down in a elint flight some months ago, I fully expected war over that one but so far little mention, relatively speaking, has been made in the news. If you were monitoring HFGCS when this took place, you might have caught the response to a skyking.

The more or less static callsigns can be found here;
http://www.udxf.nl/MCL.pdf

The call DRY SANDS is likely of limited duration, but they can be reused a few months/weeks down the road, seen it before. These calls will typically be used by stations of the TACAMO and NIGHTWATCH programs, ie NCA assets.
