About the Blog:

Welcome to KF4LMT's Shack. I blog on scanning and monitoring, amateur radio, and motor sports. MilAir, Fire/EMS, and Search and Rescue communications are the focus of my scanning posts. Amateur Radio posts mostly focus on events I participate in and mobile operating, which is my primary means of getting on HF. Sports Car racing, IndyCar, and F1 racing are what most of my motor sports posts are about. 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.

NAS Pensacola Road Trip Monitoring Report; 17 April 2015

Savannah, GA – Last night, we got back to Savannah after leaving Pensacola, stopping by the Eglin AFB Armament Museum, then continuing on home. It was a long day driving, so I waited until this morning to check the radio recordings. The list below should be the final list of what was heard during the road trip; there are a few corrections from the previous days’ lists. Equipment used was a Uniden HP-1 fed with a Radio Shack mag mount scanner antenna as an improvised mobile scanner and a Uniden BCD436HP handheld.

The week long trip was based out of Pensacola and centered on visiting some of the Gulf area military museums: the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, the USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park in Mobile, and the Air Force Armament Museum at Eglin AFB. All three museums complement each other well, but plan a large chunk of time to visit the National Naval Aviation Museum; it is the biggest of the three and has a huge collection as well as the opportunity to catch a Blue Angels practice during air show season. There’s no way you can go through it in just one day. The Battleship Memorial Park offers tours of the World War II battleship USS Alabama and the World War II submarine USS Drum, as well as other military displays including a nice collection of military aircraft (including some on loan from the National Naval Aviation Museum). The Air Force Armament Museum adds an Air Force touch to things and although it has a nice collection of aircraft, centers on the guns, bombs, rockets, and missiles used by military aircraft. If you’re in the area, try to hit all three. If you’re interested in seeing some of what they have to offer, I wrote a blog post about the museum visits each day:

For anyone interested in listening to Military Aviation communications in the Florida panhandle, I would strongly recommend using more than one radio; trying to do with just one is practically impossible. There is a lot of traffic on the base trunked systems as well as the air traffic control, tactical, and air-to-air frequencies. Using multiple radios will allow you to hear a lot more of what is going on.

NAS Pensacola Road Trip Monitoring Report; 16 April 2015

Note:  A final version of the frequency/talkgroup list below with corrections made can be found in the 17 April/Wrap-Up post.

Pensacola, FL – Yesterday, we took a trip over to Mobile, AL to see the battleship USS Alabama (BB-60). It gave me the chance to listen to some Alabama public safety communications including the Mobile EDACS system (there aren’t any EDACS public safety systems in Savannah or Brunswick). It was also an opportunity to hear activity from the US Coast Guard’s Aviation Training Center in Mobile.

NAS Pensacola Road Trip Monitoring Report; 15 April 2015

Note:  A final version of the frequency/talkgroup list below with corrections made can be found in the 17 April/Wrap-Up post.

Pensacola, FL – Yesterday was the best day weather-wise of the week so far. There were only a few sprinkles late in the afternoon/early evening so that meant there was more activity to be heard on the MilCom bands. There was a heavy amount of training activity from the training squadrons at NAS Pensacola and the Blue Angels practiced as well. Much of the day was spent at the National Naval Aviation Museum and watching the Blue Angels practice, but I was able to hear a bit of Eglin AFB and Tyndall AFB activity on the BCD456HP handheld as well.

NAS Pensacola Road Trip Monitoring Report; 14 April 2015

Note:  A final version of the frequency/talkgroup list below with corrections made can be found in the 17 April/Wrap-Up post.

Pensacola, FL – The weather continues to be dismal in Pensacola, but it hasn’t managed to crimp down fully on doing some monitoring. The Blue Angels cancelled practice yesterday due to low ceiling and visibility but I was still able to hear some T-45s and T-1s coming and going from NAS Pensacola as well as weaker traffic from Tyndall AFB and Eglin AFB. Needless to say, the weather has been keeping the local public safety agencies fairly busy as well. I don’t know what the total rainfall over the last week or so in this area has been, but it definitely water-logged here.

As always, radio and food go well together. Yesterday, we had good meals at two restaurants. The first was lunch at the Cubi Bar Cafe at the National Naval Aviation Museum. It is an absolute must see for military aviation enthusiasts; it’s a duplicate of the Cubi Point Officers club from the Philippines, including many many squadron plaques and memorabilia that was shipped to the museum when Cubi Point closed. I had the Subic Bay Steak sandwich, which is marinated steak with roasted onions and peppers “the island way” with garlic, vinegar and Teriyaki, topped with swiss cheese on a grilled panini hoagie. It was excellent, the steak was just as tender and moist and tasted amazing! Supper was at Landry’s Seafood, where I had a delicious blackened shrimp fettuccine, which had the lightest alfredo sauce I’ve ever had; it didn’t have as much heavy cream and it allowed the flavor of the other ingredients to come out more.

NAS Pensacola Road Trip Monitoring Report; 13 April 2015

Pensacola, FL – Yesterday, my folks and I left for a family trip to Pensacola, FL to see the National Naval Aviation Museum. We’d visited once before back in the late 70’s on a trip between New Orleans and Savannah, so we decided to go back and visit. The trip from Savannah to Pensacola was definitely marred by bad weather, so it had an effect on what I was able to hear on the radios (this trip isn’t using my vehicle, so I don’t have the mobile station – just a Uniden HP-1 and magmount and a BCD436HP). Once I got settled at the motel last night, it turned out that despite the bad weather I’d heard more than I thought!

There was quite a bit to hear public safety-wise, both conventional and trunked, although the early morning departure reduced the amount of activity we heard in the early part of the trip.

The weather definitely put a damper on military aviation activity. There was a bit of activity heard from Moody AFB, Eglin AFB, Duke Field, and NAS Pensacola but the majority of MilCom heard was on the DOD TRS, the Tyndall AFB TRS, and the Eglin AFB TRS.

Below is a list of what was heard, I’ll try to update a couple of times during the week.

From what we’ve heard from the locals, they’ve had 5-6 inches of rain in the last week here. You can definitely tell the ground is saturated.  It looks like the weather pattern is going to remain the same through the week, so I may not hear as much MilAir activity as I’d like to. Things did clear up toward the end of the day and it actually turned into a decent evening toward sunset.

Food and radio always go good together, so to close this report out, I’ll include the restaurant we had supper at – Fisherman’s Corner. It’s a very casual (don’t judge the book by its cover – see below) restaurant featuring chicken, steaks, and seafood in a creole/cajun style. I had the Creole Linguine (with shrimp and crawfish) and it was excellent! If you’re ever down in the Pensacola area, this is definitely a spot for a good meal.

Fishermans Corner restaurant; don't let the exterior fool you - there's a good meal to be had here!
