Robins AFB Museum of Aviation Roadtrip Monitoring Report

Archives

Savannah and Warner Robins, GA – During the roadtrip to the Robins AFB Museum of Aviation and on the way home, I did some radio monitoring using the HP-1 Home Patrol and BC780XLT in the mobile station and the BCD436HP handheld scanner (as well as some with the FT-8800’s extended receive capability).  The targets were Fire/EMS, aviation, and military aviation. I used the record functions on both the HP-1 and BCD436 to record and log activity but I didn’t keep a very good paper log because my Mother and Father also made the trip with me and I didn’t want it to seem like I was ignoring anyone.  One aircraft that I did log was NASA 809 (ER-2, NASA) when it took off around noon on a weather research mission to North Carolina; unfortunately we weren’t able to see it take off but we did hear it! On the way home, I heard ROCK 01 and ROCK 02 doing SEAD/DEAD work in the Bulldog MOA over central Georgia.  They came in as singles, worked together for about 15-20 minutes then got cleared to Eglin AFB as singles. I never was able to get an ID on them or find an air-to-air frequency for them.

Note:  While monitoring the Robins AFB TRS I had the Air Logistics Center (ALC) talkgroups locked out because with them active you couldn’t hear anything else because of how busy their talkgroups were.

It wasn’t heard during the trip, but not long after arriving back in Savannah this evening, I got a pleasant surprise on Mode-S and 134.700 and 127.650 with Hunter AAF GCA.  AUSSY 400, one of the Royal Navy MH-60Rs from NAS Jacksonville, was in the GCA pattern at Hunter.  In addition to being on the VHF GCA frequencies, it was showing as 7CF9A3 on Mode-S.  I don’t have anything bigger than a 100-300mm zoom lens, so I wasn’t able to get much detail or zoom in any further but I was able to take a photo of AUSSY 400 from the front yard:
