About the Blog:

Welcome to KF4LMT's Shack. I blog on scanning and monitoring, amateur radio, motor sports, history and books. I also post my amateur nature and wildlife photography.

Feel free to leave a comment or drop me a line at kf4lmt @ gmail.com.

Sorry, but I don't program scanners – it has led to too many requests that I just don't have time to accommodate.

If you're looking for me on Facebook, I'm no longer there. I deactivated my account... and I'm enjoying life more for it.

Coastal Georgia Military Monitoring Recap; November 2016

I had more radio time last month in both Savannah and Brunswick than I’ve had in ages and it turned out that despite the slack MilAir time around Thanksgiving, there was plenty to listen to. Exercises Bold Quest and Sentry Savannah continued from late October in addition to an exercise at Fort Stewart involving A-10s from Moody AFB. Bold Quest, by the way, should be back in Savannah for several more years according to local news reports.

New to the Area Air Methods Bell 407 in the Savannah Area

Savannah – Yesterday I caught an Air Methods Bell 407, N408SH, that’s new to the Savannah area doing what seemed to be an area familiarization flight in the Savannah area around Memorial Hospital. Air Methods is the same company that operates LifeStar and several other air ambulance helicopters in South Carolina’s lowcountry (as well as many others around the country).

It was on Hunter AAF tower frequency 124.975 as it flew the area around Memorial and made several landings on the helicopter pad at Memorial. It’s worth noting that N408SH showed up on Mode-S and ADS-B and I was able to follow it with my Mode-S/ADS-B receiver while it was flying around Memorial (see photo above). I didn’t get a visual on N408SH yesterday, but a recent photo from June of this year I found online shows it white and blue with a red stripe. I never did get an idea of where it might be flying out of, but it will definitely be worth keeping an eye and ear on. Keep an ear on 125.300/120.400 (Savannah Approach), 119.100 (Savannah Tower), 124.975 (Hunter AAF Tower), 123.025 (Savannah Helicopter Advisory), and 155.340 (HEAR) for it to show up again or begin flying medevac missions in the area.

Review: The Fleet at Flood Tide: America at Total War in the Pacific, 1944-1945

The Fleet at Flood Tide: America at Total War in the Pacific, 1944-1945
The Fleet at Flood Tide: America at Total War in the Pacific, 1944-1945 by James D. Hornfischer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a book that may take some readers by surprise, you have to consider the subtitle more than you do the title. Instead of a narrative of the final phase of World War II in the Pacific, it is a book about Total War in the Pacific. Primarily, Hornfischer looks at the Pacific War from the Marianas to the fall of Japan from the perspective of Admiral Raymond Spruance, Admiral Kelly Turner, and Colonel Paul Tibbets (others are included as well, I particularly enjoyed the story of Draper Kauffman). The perspectives of Japanese nurse Shizuko Miura and Army Captain Sakae Oba are also important.

The first part of the book goes over the invasion of the Marianas. It details the preparations and logistics of the operation and gives an account of what happened during the assaults and fights for Saipan, Tinian, and Guam and during the naval battles fought around the invasions of the islands. Hornfischer examines leadership decisions on both sea and land, explaining why they were made. Information presented during the first part about how the Japanese fought in the Marianas and what was done to and by Japanese and Japanese controlled civilians becomes important to the second part of the book.

The question of morality in warfare is vexing. Is there a moral way to kill someone? Is a bullet preferable to starvation, starvation to incineration? By law or by norm, who is a legitimate target in a war in which one side will not yield?

The second part of the book gets into the Total War that fight against Japan began. The battles for Iwo Jima and Okinawa are briefly explained, showing how the acquisition of those islands would be beneficial to operations against the Japanese home islands. At this point, the Hornfischer gets into what would be needed to defeat the Japanese and bring them to surrender; based on what happened in the Marianas, at Iwo Jima, and at Okinawa it would not be easy and it would not be like the war in Europe was. This second part of the book not only explains how the atomic bombs were used, it goes into why. The final chapter gets into a philosophical discussion on the use of the atomic bombs and ends with how the United States treated Japan in defeat.

The Fleet at Flood Tide is a book I’m glad I read. It’s wonderfully written and delves as much into the why as it does the how, which is really what History is all about. It doesn’t glorify the victory at the Marianas or the use of the atomic bombs, it presents the tragedy involved as well. If you’re interested in why the atomic bombs were used, this is a must read as it lays out the case that the U.S. leadership used and shows what could have happened had there been an invasion of the Japanese Home islands. It also gets into the minds of Spruance, Turner, and Tibbets as well as some of the other personalities involved. The stories of Miura and Oba add much to the book by presenting the Japanese mindset. I highly recommend The Fleet at Flood Tide regardless of how much you have read on or know about World War II in the Pacific.

Veterans Day Weekend Amateur Radio

Brunswick – On Friday I was in Brunswick and not able to go the Veteran’s Day Parade in Savannah like I do when I’m in town, so I decided to observe Veteran’s Day before going to bed (I work midnight shifts) by turning on the mobile HF station and trying to work some Veteran’s Day Special Event stations. Unfortunately, the bands didn’t seem to cooperate. I only heard one: KF5CRF, The Tiger Radio Club operating from Mangum High School in Mangum, OK. It was good to hear a school group observing Veteran’s Day, I hope they enjoyed the experience and learned something in the process. The QSO was a short one because there was a lot of QSB and the band just seemed “wobbly.”

I have to admit to being ashamed of some of what I heard on amateur radio, particularly on 40 Meters, on Friday morning. As in other aspects of life here in the United States, Trump’s victory seems to have emboldened racists, bigots, and xenophobes. Amateur Radio is a hobby that can build unity and understanding across borders; some of what I heard on Friday was despicable and would only foster hate and misunderstanding. I hope that the poor radio conditions kept hams in other countries from hearing some of the worst of what our country has to offer.

Still in Brunswick on Saturday, I also fired up the mobile station and again played radio before going to bed. Conditions were considerably better and I logged some more special event stations and my first DX since August. My prize contact for the weekend was ON4PTC /P, a special event station operating from the Tyne Cot Cemetery near Passendale, Belgium remembering the Battle of Passchendaele. Passchendaele was one of the most controversial and terrible battles of World War I; estimates vary, but combined casualties were over 450,000 during the six months of the battle. Tyne Cot Cemetery holds 11,956 Commonwealth and French dead, 8.369 of which are unknown soldiers. I love working special event stations for historic events and it was an honor to work a special event station that was remembering all those who perished during such an awful battle.

Reflecting on what I heard on Friday I realized that, unlike those operators, the operators at ON4PTC /P were exhibiting some of the best of the Amateur Radio hobby; I hope more operators look at them as an example by operating in friendship and in respect rather in ill will and hate.

Military Monitoring Recap; October 2016

I was surprised when I started going over my notes for the month how much I heard during October. Hurricane Matthew came through at the beginning of the month and kept me busy at work, curtailing listening time for over a week. It took a bit of time for MCAS Beaufort to get back active, hence the lower level of activity seen there for the month. Toward the end of the month, exercise Bold Quest 16-2 began and that brought some visiting units to the Air Dominance Center at Savannah International Airport as well as some visitors to the exercise airspace to participate.
