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.

Miscellaneous MilAir Notes

Recent monitoring and questions from other hobbyists have led to information I thought would be worth passing on. None of them are quite big enough to do a single post on them, so I’ve combined them into this update.

VMFAT-501

VMFAT-501, the F-35B training squadron at MCAS Beaufort is getting busier all the time. This week, it’s been particularly interesting to listen to them as they’ve done air combat maneuvering training off of the coast, close air support training at Townsend Range, and worked with F-16s from Shaw AFB in the Bulldog MOA. The increased activity has led to the discovery of these unit frequencies:

  • 299.275 – VMFAT-501 Base
  • 315.300 – VMFAT-501 Tac
  • 319.500 – VMFAT-501 Tac

So far, they’ve been using SWEDE 1#, 2#, and 3# callsigns in morning and afternoon sorties with an occasional nighttime sortie as well. I wasn’t in the area to hear it, but The Aviationist reports that VMFAT-501 has been doing aerial refueling operations and shares a YouTube B-roll video of them refueling with KC-130Js. (I would have loved to have heard this!)

224th MI Bn

I was asked the other day about 224th MI Bn RC-12s. Truth be told, I haven’t heard any RC-12s flying out of Hunter in months. The only 224th MI Bn activity I’ve heard are two MC-12Ws, which the units seems to be transitioning or seem to have transitioned to (Mode-S and tail numbers below):

  1. AE4C61 – MC-12W, 10-0739, B/224 MI Bn
  2. AE4C62 – MC-12W, 10-0742, B/224 MI Bn
SUNNY 22 (MC-12W, 10-0739) on final to Hunter AAF

SUNNY 22 (MC-12W, 10-0739) on final to Hunter AAF

Townsend Range (R-3007)/Coastal MOA

This week, I’ve been hearing aircraft from various bases and units working with a JTAC using the callsign AGRESSOR at Townsend Range and in addition to the normal Range/MOA frequencies, some aircraft have been pushed to 226.975 to work with the JTAC. I previously heard 226.975 used on a few occasions in 2007 and 2010, but not extensively. I’m not sure if this is a Range Control frequency or a MOA discrete, but it definitely seems to be worth programming in.

My Take on the 2015 IndyCar Aero Kits

I haven’t felt motivated to write a motor sports post, but after seeing Honda’s IndyCar aero kit that was debuted earlier this week I finally felt that motivation. Admittedly, there are times that IndyCar makes it difficult to be a fan, but this is most definitely not one of those times. After years of almost spec race cars, IndyCar now has an element of engineering diversity if just in the realm of aerodynamics. What we’ve seen so far are their Road/Street Course/Short Oval kits so those are what I discuss below.

The Chevrolet aero kit was introduced earlier this year and was developed in partnership with Pratt and Miller. It is the more conservative of the two designs and most closely resembles the original Dallara. The front wing in particular looks rather conventional and not far removed from what we’ve seen on previous IndyCars. Flicks are liberally sprinkled about the car until you get to the rear of the car which is reminiscent of a prototype race car. Particularly noticeable at the rear of the car is the multi-element rear wing with slotted end plates.

The Honda Performance Development aero kit developed in partnership with Wirth Research on the other hand, is the more complex of the two. Overall, it is a more aggressive design. All around there are multiple elements to be found, whether they’re on the front wing, flicks along the body work, or the rear wing. The front wing in particular stands out, there are a lot more elements to it and it’s obviously going to be redirecting more air than the Chevrolet kit will. The rear wing and bodywork behind the rear tires look more like the Chevrolet but once again there are more elements and the rear wing end plate is not stlotted.

When you take the manufacturer partnerships into consideration, the differences in the aero kits aren’t that surprising. Both partnerships are not new, both pairs have plenty of experience working with each other. Pratt and Miller are more experienced at designing GT race cars, although they have some prototype experience and Wirth Research has experience with designing prototype race cars, particularly the recent HPD/Acura ARX series LMP1 and LMP2 cars (it’s also worth mentioning that HPD’s parent company Honda have F1 experience). Honda’s F1 heritage is definitely visible in their aero kit. I think Pratt and Miller’s heavier experience with GT cars and Chevrolet’s more general association with “tin top” racing led to their more conventional design while HPD’s prototype experience and Honda’s F1 heritage resulted in their more complex design.

I’m not privy to any of the reasoning either of the pairings used in their designs, but I have been thinking about what they might have had in mind. I think Honda has heavily considered downforce and outright performance. Their kit appears to create a lot of downforce, possibly more than the Chevrolet kit (although we don’t really know because no figures have been released and they haven’t tested side by side). Chevrolet, on the other hand may have been thinking more about durability. Even though most of it is in NASCAR, Chevrolet has more experience in oval racing and know that contact on a short oval is sometimes unavoidable. Likewise, contact is hard to avoid on street courses where you’re racing between concrete barriers. Both lead to damage and can cause you to lose your complex aero bits. The Chevrolet kit looks like it may be sturdier because of lack of those complex bits. Perhaps there are two different philosophies at work in the two designs? We’ll see…

Although I’m a life long Chevrolet fan, I think Honda may have stolen a march on Chevrolet in the battle between the aero kits. It certainly looks like the Honda kit is going to create more downforce and that’s very important on road/street courses and short ovals. A lot also rides on how the manufacturers have developed their engines during the off season as well; there of course has to be the proper balance between downforce and power for maximum performance. All that said, the proof is in the pudding. We won’t know for sure what either kit is going to do until the season gets underway at St. Petersburg. Of course, this opens up the potential for domination by one manufacturer or the other, but racing isn’t always side by side, neck and neck. It isn’t just about who the best driver is, it is also about who can build the best race car and now that element has, to an extent, been returned to IndyCar. This is going to make the 2015 season quite fascinating and has increased my expectations for the season. I for one can’t wait until the green flag drops to start the season!

Review: The Boer War

The Boer War
The Boer War by Denis Judd
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a shorter review than I normally write, but I’ve had a hard time writing it. After reading Byron Farwell’s The Anglo-Boer War, I really wanted to enjoy The Boer War by Dennis Judd and Keith Surridge but instead, I came away somewhat disappointed. The Boer War is well researched, informative, and argues some great points but it does so in a very dry way. The authors don’t develop the important personalities, so you don’t get as much insight into their interactions. The book is light on details and heavy on analysis and that isn’t necessarily a problem, but there just doesn’t seem to be quite enough detail on the military action. Additionally, it had no maps and maps are important when you’re dealing with military history. Finally, I frequently felt like I was reading a text book much of the time.

I never really felt engaged with this book. It didn’t draw me in and make me want to keep reading, or make me wonder what was coming on the next page. That’s a trap that a book on history can easily fall into and this one unfortunately did. I can only give this book three stars, but at the same time I don’t want to discourage anyone from reading it. It’s definitely worth reading, but only after reading another book on the war that will familiarize you with the war and provide more detail on the fighting and the personalities than this one does.

Military Monitoring Recap; February 2015

For a variety of reasons, I didn’t end up with a lot of radio time in February but it still turned out to be a good month. A lot of poor weather and catching the “bug” that was going around was more than made up for by the Sentry Savannah exercise that was being held out of Savannah IAP and Hunter AAF for two weeks. The 43rd FS, 113th Wing, and 148th FW and the 117th, 134th, and 185th ARWs participated along with a number of local area units. It’s worth mentioning that most of my monitoring for February was done from the mobile station. I didn’t find myself home very often and when I was, I spent most of it ill with the crud/bug/whatever they want to call it this go around. It’s proof positive that you don’t have to have a bunch of radios and an antenna farm to have fun with the radio hobby (it also doesn’t hurt when you have views from your monitoring spot like below)!

It doesn't hurt when your mobile monitoring spot has a view like this!
