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!
