Interesting UNID Milcoms on 5723u
« on: December 11, 2011, 0551 UTC »
Began picking up UNID milcom on 5723 last couple of nights.  This freq is not on any of my known Milcom frequency lists, so any ideas would be appreciated.

Hearing sporadic alpha-numeric identifiers tonight beginning around 5:00z:  Kilo, Juliet, Echo, Echo-Charlie, Delta so far tonight.  The frequency is mostly silent but patient monitoring is rewarded with these sporadic check-ins of one sort or another, accompanied by UNID digital bursts.  Hearing a few rounds per hour.

You're welcome.... but I just punched the frequency into Google and found a bunch of north atlantic navy logs ;)
(and it's listed as a CFB Esquimalt channel on Industry Canada records)

Peace!

Ah Google!Good thinking! :D
 
5723 has remained active, albeit with poor reception here in StL.
Better reception tonight, with call signs copied Kilo, Echo-Charlie and Echo-Whiskey.
At 03:30z a multiline message only partially copied here but replete with terminology (air-defence, weapon posture, threat sector etc) that I am assuming denotes an exercise of some sort.

The logs I found said something about NASA recovery exercises. So a drill channel is the most likely scenario.

Peace!
