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.

Changes at Coast Guard Air Station Savannah

Savannah – As I wrote last week, Coast Guard Air Station Savannah swapped out some aircraft. At the time, I wasn’t sure of exactly which aircraft were swapped, but another week of monitoring has confirmed which ones are now based at the Air Station.

CGAS Savannah Aircraft
MH-65D, 6516 (AE266A)
MH-65D, 6531 (AE2679)
MH-65D, 6544 (AE509F)
MH-65D, 6550 (AE2688)
MH-65D, 6567 (AE2699)

6516 and 6550 have been at Air Station Savannah for awhile. 6544 is a more recent addition and also happens to have the white heritage paint scheme for 100 years of Coast Guard aviation. 6531 and 6567 are the two aircraft that just arrived this month.

While I’m on the subject of Air Station Savannah, I thought I’d mention that they’ve also recently changed how the helicopters are communicating with the Air Station. Since shortly after the Sector Charleston area began using the Rescue 21 radio system, Air Station Savannah began using CG 107 (150.300, P25 digital voice) as their Ops frequency. I’m not sure why, but over the last couple of months, they’ve gone back to using 345.000 (AM) as their Ops frequency.

 

Second Sentry Savannah of 2017 Update; 24 July 2017

I posted last week that I thought another Sentry Savannah exercise was underway and events of the last week have confirmed it. 43rd FS F-22s, 2nd FTS T-38s, and VFA-83 F/A-18s are working out of the Air Dominance Center at the Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport and a KC-135 from the 168th AW is supporting them out of Hunter AAF.

Aircraft Changes at Hunter AAF and Coast Guard Air Station Savannah

Update, 24 July 2017:  Further monitoring has confirmed which aircraft are based at Air Station Savannah

Savannah – There have recently been a few changes to aircraft assigned to the 224th MI Battalion and Coast Guard Air Station Savannah at Hunter AAF in Savannah. In mid-June, a third MC-12 began flying with the 224th MI Bn: MC-12S-2, 09-00642. Earlier this month, there was a swap of US Coast Guard MH-65Ds at Coast Guard Air Station Savannah; based on Mode-S data and monitoring of radio communications, it appears that 6555 has been replaced by 6567 and that 6562 may have been replaced by 6531. I haven’t heard or seen 6562 since 9 July or 6531 since 11 July, so I haven’t been able to confirm that swap yet. Tail numbers and Mode-S codes for the aircraft are below. Stay tuned…

224th MI Bn Aircraft
MC-12S-2, 09-00642 (AE2F61)

Second Sentry Savannah Exercise of 2017 Underway

Savannah – It appears that the second Sentry Savannah exercise of 2017 is underway at the Air Dominance Center at Savannah IAP. Aircraft from the 43rd FS, 2nd FTS, and possibly VFA-83, using usual Sentry Savannah frequencies, were flying sorties from the Air Dominance Center on Monday in between the storms. A list of frequencies heard in use today are below; monitoring time may be short the rest of the week, but I’ll update the list as I can.

Cessna 210 Makes Emergency Landing on the South End of Ossabaw Island

Savannah – This morning I made an early morning visit to the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge; while on the way to breakfast around 0930, I began hearing an In-Flight Emergency (IFE) situation in progress south of Savannah. Savannah Approach/Departure was in communication with an aircraft that I could barely hear in reference to it declaring an emergency. The pilot of the aircraft told the controller that they were going to try to land on a beach and shortly thereafter the controller lost both radio and radar contact with the aircraft. No other aircraft reported picking up an ELT, so I was hoping that the pilot had been able to make a safe, controlled landing.

 

Things began to happen fairly quickly. The controller vectored a nearby aircraft to the area of the south end of Ossabaw Island near where the last radar contact was. After searching the area for a few minutes, that aircraft located the aircraft on the beach and reported that they could see the occupants outside of the aircraft. A US Coast Guard Auxiliary Aircraft, Auxiliary 41C, was also in the area and it headed towards Ossabaw Island as well. Just before 1000, US Coast Guard RESCUE 6550 (MH-65D, 6550, CGAS Savannah) departed Coast Guard Air Station Savannah at Hunter AAF for Ossabaw Island. There was encrypted communications on 413.000, CG 413, which Coast Guard Sector Charleston uses for communicating with USCG aircraft in the area, but there was also some traffic in the clear between Sector Charleston and 6550 on 157.050, Marine VHF Ch. 21. I could only hear Sector Charleston’s side of the traffic since I was so far away in Garden City, but 6550 picked up the occupants of the aircraft shortly after 1000 and transported them to CGAS Savannah, leaving the aircraft on the beach. I didn’t catch the N-number of the aircraft during the IFE, but the USCG photo below shows it to be a Cessna 210, N2246S, registered to a company out of Townsend, GA.

 

A crew aboard an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter from Coast Guard Air Station Savannah, Georgia, assisted three people Saturday, July 8, 2017, following an aircraft emergency landing on Ossabaw Island. All three people were in good condition and reported no injuries. U.S. Coast Guard photo

 

It was wonderful to listen to a rescue that had a good, safe conclusion. The controller handled the situation calmly, the pilot apparently cooly and calmly handled the emergency landing, the second aircraft deviated from its flight path to find the landing location, and the Coast Guard quickly got out to the location to recover the occupants. It was definitely not something you hear every day.

Coastal Georgia Military Monitoring Recap; June 2017

June 2017 turned out to be a good month for monitoring MilCom in the coastal Georgia area. Unfortunately, I don’t have much new to report on the frequencies changes at MCAS Beaufort; other than VMFAT-501 they didn’t seem to fly that much or either I wasn’t home in Savannah when they did. I did, however, make one new find in that area; it sounds like 343.200 is VMFAT-501’s new Base frequency. I need to monitor it some more to make certain, but activity heard on the frequency toward the end of the month certainly points toward it being their Base frequency. In other VMFAT-501 news, ATAC continued to have a detachment of Hawker Hunters at MCAS Beaufort to do air-to-air training with VMFAT-501 through at least part of June. Finally, it’s worth mentioning that the 224th MI Bn at Hunter AAF seems to have a new MC-12W, 09-00642. 09-00642 appears to arrived at Hunter around mid-June and began flying with the SHADY callsign toward the end of the month.

Clapper Rail preening after a rain storm passed through the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge. #nature #wildlife #WildlifeRefuge #SavannahNWR Great Egret at the Harris Neck National Wildlife Refuge's Woody Pond. #wildlife #nature #HarrisNeckNWR #wildliferefuge This Alligator at the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge almost seemed to be sniffing the lotus flower at its nose. We managed to visit the Refuge between lines of storms late this morning and it was well worth it. #alligator #nature #wildlife #wildliferefuge The MH-48 mic for the FT-8800 has been repaired (hopefully), I'll test it out later this morning. #hamr #hamradio
