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.

UN General Assembly Executive Flights and Hearing Part of a Historic Event

Savannah – Today turned out to be a fairly interesting day on the radios. The 2016 UN General Assembly is taking place this week and today I caught four flights that are more than likely related to it:  two Japanese Air Self Defense Force executive flights and two Colombian Air Force executive flights passed by Savannah going southbound along the Atlantic coast.

JAPANESE AIR FORCE 001 (747, 20-1102, 701 Hikotai, JASDF) and JAPANESE AIR FORCE 002 (747, 20-1101, 701 Hikotai, JASDF) showed up on Mode-S/ADS-B as they flew south along the Georgia coast around lunchtime. I also caught them with Jacksonville ARTCC on 132.425. News reports showed that the Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe gave a speech at the General Assembly yesterday, so it would be a safe guess that he and the Japanese delegation were on 001; 002 was probably along in a support or backup role. Both aircraft are rare catches in this area, the only time I’ve logged them before was in 2004 and that was because a G-8 summit was held on the Georgia Coast. The screen captures below show them plotted off of the Savannah coast while I was hearing them on 132.425; there’s also a short clip of 001’s audio with Jax Center.

I also caught two Colombian Air Force 737s on Mode-S, but one wasn’t transmitting ADS-B data and I didn’t catch them on air traffic control. The news also shows that Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos Calderón gave a speech at the General Assembly yesterday so it’s also a safe guess that these two 737s were carrying and/or supporting he and the Colombian delegation. Mode-S data for the 737s is:  0AC182 – 737, FAC1209, ESCTA 811, Colombian AF and A83001 – 737, FAC0001, GRUVE 82, Colombian AF. FAC1209 was the one showing ADS-B data and a screen capture for it is below.

Why were the two Japanese Air Defense Force 747s where they were? I was curious why they were going southbound near Savannah and a search of the news turned up the reason:  Shinzo Abe visited Cuba today. It turns out that this is the first visit of a Japanese head of state to Cuba, so it turns out that I caught something that was part of a historic event! As a radio geek and a History geek, this turned out to be a magnificent intercept; you never know what you’re going to hear when you sit down at the radios.

3rd Combat Aviation Brigade Tailnumbers

Savannah – I’ve been trying to put together a list of tail numbers for the helicopters assigned to the 3rd Aviation Brigade at Hunter AAF for a while now and I’ve finally come up with one. I’ve used what I’ve heard on the radios, seen on Mode-S/ADS-B, and information from other spotter sources such as Scramble to come up with the list below. Over the last few years, the composition of the Brigade has changed. One change was the loss of 3-17 Cav’s OH-58s, after which they took over the AH-64Ds of  the Attack Helicopter Battalion, 1-3 AVN.  Additionally, C/2-3 AVN and 4-3 AVN traded their UH-60A and UH-60Ls for HH-60Ms and UH-60 Ms. The Brigade currently has 3 flying battalions (plus one support battalion). 2-3 Aviation, the “Knighthawks,” is the General Support Aviation Battalion with UH-60L Blackhawks, CH-47F Chinooks, and HH-60M Blackhawks. 3-17 Cav, “Lighthorse,” is equipped with the AH-64D Apache. The Assault Battalion is 4-3 Aviation, “Brawler,” equipped with UH-60M Blackhawks.

Fort Stewart and Hunter AAF Fire/EMS Dispatch

Savannah – A few weeks ago, I posted about the Fort Stewart and Hunter AAF Fire Department and EMS talkgroups changing. Since then I think I’ve finally figured out what they’re doing (although not why). None of the previous Fire/EMS talkgroups seem to be in use and they’re now not only using a new set of talkgroups but also dispatching differently than they had on the old talkgroups.

Fort Stewart/Hunter AAF Fire and EMS Talkgroups

  • 1095 – Fort Stewart/Hunter AAF FD & EMS Dispatch
  • 371 – Fort Stewart FD
  • 373 – Fort Stewart/Hunter AAF EMS
  • 1147 – Hunter AAF FD
  • 1097 – “Ops 1”
  • 1103 – “Ops 4”

The talkgroup structure as seen above is apparently a dispatch channel, a channel for each department and a set of Ops channels. The department channels only seem to be used by dispatch; I’ve yet to hear any mobile/portable traffic from FD or EMS units on them. Between listening and looking at Unitrunker logs, it looks like Fort Stewart FD, Hunter AAF FD, and Fort Stewart/Hunter AAF EMS each have a talkgroup, but that talkgroup seems to be only used during tone-out of a call. During morning radio checks, Fort Stewart Central will come across and announce the time to radio and tone checks for Fort Stewart FD on TG 371, but the radio checks are done over TG 1095 (and likewise with EMS and Hunter AAF FD with their respective talkgroups). It seems that when dispatching calls, they patch the Dispatch talkgroup to the appropriate department talkgroup: for example, when dispatching Fort Stewart FD, it looks like they patch TG 1095 and TG 371 together. After the dispatch, traffic is on TG 1095 or is shifted to an Ops talkgroup. As for the Ops talkgroups, I’ve heard TG 1097 referred to as “Ops 1” and TG 1103 referred to as “Ops 4.”  I haven’t heard them yet, but I’m guessing that 1099 and 1101 are “Ops 2” and “Ops 3” respectively.

If you’ve heard anything different or have any ideas on what they’re doing or why, please comment or let me know.

Glynn County Fire Department on the SEGARRN TRS

Those listening to public safety communications on the SEGARRN system in Bryan, Chatham, Effingham, and Liberty County may have recently begun hearing the Glynn County Fire Department on the system due to Glynn County’s recent move of their public safety communications from the Glynn County TRS to the SEGARRN system. For those not familiar with Glynn County or the Glynn County FD, here is an overview of their talkgroups and department.

Glynn County FD is dispatched by Glynn County 911 but decisions on responding units are sometimes changed or supplemented by Fire Control out of Station 1. When monitoring Glynn County FD, it’s important to remember that they use “Squad” for an ambulance – so their Squads are EMS units. Since the change, I’ve been using a combination of ID Tracker III and Unitrunker to try to find out what talkgroups the Glynn County FD and Brunswick FD are using.

Screen capture of Unitrunker reading the control channel of the Glynn County SEGARRN site.

So far, two SEGARRN talkgroups have been discovered for the Glynn County Fire Department:

  • 13320 – Glynn County FD 1
  • 13324 – Glynn County FD 2

It’s quite possible that there are more talkgroups for the Department but so far these are the only ones that have been discovered. Keep a watch on this blog and the RadioReference website for updates.

Glynn County Fire Department Station Locations/Apparatus

  • Station 1 – Station 1 is located at 4310 Community Road, covers the central part of Glynn County, and also serves as the Glynn County FD’s headquarters. Engine 1, Squad 1, Rescue 1, Ladder-Tower 1, Tanker 1, Engine 11, and the Deputy Chiefs (51, 52, and 53) ride out of Station 1
  • Station 2 – Station 2 is located at 1929 Demere Rd on St. Simons Island and covers the south part of St. Simons Island and Malcolm McKinnon Airport. Engine 2, Squad 2, and Rescue 2 ride out of Station 2.
  • Station 3 – Station 3 is located at 127 Grants Ferry Rd and covers the northwest part of Glynn County. Engine 3 and Squad 3 ride out of Station 3.
  • Station 4 – Station 4 is located at 3581 Frederica Rd and covers the central part of St. Simons Island. Engine 4, Squad 4, and Ladder 4 ride out of Station 4.
  • Station 5 – Station 5 is located at the Brunswick Golden Isles Airport and covers the northeastern part of Glynn County. Engine 5 rides out of Station 5 as do CFR (Crash-Fire-Rescue) 5 and 11 to provide crash/fire coverage for the airport.
  • Station 6 – Station 6 is located at 3320 Highway 17 South and covers the southern part of Glynn County. Engine 6 and Squad 6 ride out of Station 6.
  • Station 7 – Station 7 is located at 2911 Lawrence Road on St. Simons Island and covers the northern part of St. Simons Island. Engine 7 and Tanker 7 ride out of Station 7.
  • Station 8 – Station 8 is located at 141 Public Safety Blvd and covers the northern part of Glynn County. Engine 8 and Squad 8 ride out of Station 8.

In addition to the stations above, Squad 11 rides out of Brunswick FD Station at 1201 Gloucester St to provide EMS coverage to the city of Brunswick.

The Brunswick Fire Department is also dispatched by Glynn County 911, but they have their talkgroups on which they’re dispatched and operate.  Their Stations are located on 1201 Gloucester St. on the south side of the city and 3129 4th St. on the north side of the city. The talkgroups found so far for the Brunswick FD are:

  • 13334 – Brunswick FD 1
  • 13335 – Brunswick FD 2

As with the Glynn County FD, watch this blog and the RadioReference website for updates.

 

Military Monitoring Recap; July/August 2016

July and August were busy months, but I did get some time to play radio. The two months provided interesting listening with visits to the area from F-22s and T-38s from Tyndall AFB and F-5s from VFC-111 and VMFT-401, and a Sentry Savannah exercise at the Air Dominance Center in Savannah.

Blog Posts Coming… After the Tropical Storm

I’ve got several posts in the works that were going to go up today and tomorrow, but getting ready to go back to Brunswick and preparations for TS Hermine have gotten in the way. Providing there are no prohibitive effects from Hermine, I’ll get them up after the busy Labor Day holiday at work. Look for the July/August MilCom recap, the July/August Mode-S report, a post on the Glynn County FD moving to the SEGARRN system, and a post on portable Mode-S/ADS-B monitoring

Stay Safe!
