Military? 6855 kHz USB (voice) starting 2323z 26 Jan 2021
« on: January 27, 2021, 0014 UTC »
I can find no record of 6855 kHz being an active mil freq, but heard what sounds like mil air traffic at 2323z and again at 2357z. Recordings of first message at https://www.lutins.org/temp/6855_1.mp3 and second message at https://www.lutins.org/temp/6855_2.mp3. Transcript (best as I can discern) of first message is as follows (M = male; F = female):

M: [Sevine ?] [Sevine ?] Speedair zero one, Speedair zero one
F: Speedair zero one [flight ?] forward go ahead
M: Charlie three five Charlie three five, Golf two three Golf two three, [chest ?] now zero two zero, zero two zero
F: Charlie three five Charlie three five, Golf two three Golf two three, zero two zero, zero two zero
[beep]

Have a look at the following post:

After hearing your 2 recordings my first thought was that this was Canadian as well based on dialect.

Thanks - sounds like a positive ID! When I use the search bar at the top of this website to search for "6855", nothing comes up (well, except for my post, now). Maybe I don't understand some subtle way it works (or doesn't).

I'm not going to lie, I used Google but I just tried searching for 6855 from the home page a got 4 pages of additional results. A couple of interesting ones, several being Cuban Spy Number stations and this one about CANFORCE and Halifax https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,36044.msg134758.html#msg134758

This other post looks very similar to the one you reported https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,37937.msg141704.html#msg141704

I'm going to have to keep an ear on this frequency.

Really interesting recording - I picked up 'Flight following' as the female basestation. 'Speedair' is the ATC callsign for PAL Aerospace, Canada. They are involved in numerous operations including airborne ISR missions. The message is obviously coded.
