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.

First Sentry Savannah Exercise of 2017 Underway

sentry-savannahSavannah – It appears that the first Sentry Savannah exercise of 2017 is underway at the Savannah Combat Readiness Training Center/Air Dominance Center at Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport. This iteration of the exercise’s players are the 43rd Fighter Squadron from Tyndall AFB with F-22As, the 142nd Fighter Wing, Oregon ANG from Portland ANGB with F-15Cs, VFA-143 from NAS Oceana with F/A-18Es, and the 2nd Fighter Training Squadron from Tyndall AFB with T-38s. All of the above are flying out of the CRTC/Air Dominance Center and working off of the Georgia Coast in the Special Use Areas controlled by SEALORD.  F-16s from the South Carolina Air National Guard at McEntire JNGB have also been participating. The exercise should run for two weeks with the possibility of other units arriving for the second week.

So far, frequencies in use are the same as used in previous Sentry Savannahs. The usual local air traffic control frequencies and SUA frequencies are in use along with the same NORAD and exercise frequencies used in years past. The units seem to be using their own air-to-air frequencies this time instead of pool frequencies that have been used before.

A Brief Winter Field Day 2017 Op From the Mobile Station

Brunswick – On Sunday morning after attending 8:00 AM Eucharist at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Brunswick, I decided to get in a few Winter Field Day contacts before going to sleep (I work midnights and went to Church after work). Initially, I had the idea to operate from the parking lot of the Brunswick Landing Marina off of US 341 in downtown Brunswick; I thought it would be nice to operate from both a historic and scenic location. Unfortunately, I had an S7 noise floor on 20 Meters (the first band I tried) which made any contacts extremely difficult. I’m not sure what the source of the noise was, but I’m guessing it was coming from nearby industrial or port facilities. I tried several different spots in the lot with same disappointing result (I was genuinely looking forward to operating from the area), so I left and went back to the parking lot at work and operated there for about an hour.  It was a bit early, so I didn’t hear a lot of stations on but I was able to work most that I heard on both 40 Meters and 20 Meters. My first contact, pleasantly, was with VA1AVR in Nova Scotia. From there, I worked stations in Alabama, Iowa, Kansas, New York, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.

The next time I try to operate from the downtown Brunswick area, I might try the Mary Ross Park area but I’m afraid that might have the same result because it isn’t far from the Brunswick Landing Marina. I’ll give it a try and report on the results.

Change in VMFAT-501 Frequencies and MDTC Continues

Savannah – Today is the first day in a little over a week that I’ve been able to play radio and one of the first things I noticed is that VMFAT-501 at MCAS Beaufort has changed frequencies. They’ve been using 315.300, 319.500, and 285.000 as air-to-air frequencies as 299.275 as their Base frequency. After not hearing anything while SWEDE flights were en route to and working at Townsend Range this morning, I put a radio in search mode and found a flight on 326.700. Throughout the rest of the morning, I found SWEDE flights 348.125 and 349.225. Subsequent SWEDE flights used these same three air-to-air frequencies throughout the rest of the afternoon.  I haven’t determined designators for these new air-to-air frequencies yet nor have I been able to ascertain if their Base frequency has changed, but I havne’t heard anything on 299.275 so far today.

The MAG-31 MDTC continues this week, with LATCH and SALEM as the MAG-31 F/A-18s and SNIPER flights as opposition forces along with EAGLE flights of F-15s from the 142nd FW, Oregon ANG.  The 142nd FW is working out of Savannah IAP and their presence could indicate a Sentry Savannah exercise will begin soon as a Sentry Savannah usually takes place around the end of January/beginning of February and the 142nd FW has been a previous participant. The 142nd FW has been using 252.300 at the Savannah CRTC/Air Dominance Center for REDHAWK Ops and 226.750 for air-to-air.

Another Option for a BCD436HP Radio Holster

I’ve been looking for a radio holster for my Uniden BCD436HP handheld scanner ever since I bought it. I’ve tried several generic radio holsters by various manufacturers but I haven’t been happy with them. Some of the BCD436HP specific ones I’ve seen online just don’t look like they’re worth the price being asked for them so I didn’t bother ordering them. Recently, however, I came across a new option:  AR-15 magazine pouches.

AR-15 Magazine Pouch as BCD436HP radio holster

AR-15 Magazine Pouch as BCD436HP radio holster

As it turns out, the width and depth of a BCD436HP is very similar to that of an AR-15 magazine so the radio fits in many AR Magazine pouches. Almost every area has a gun shop or uniform store that carries these magazine pouches and they’re usually not as expensive as a dedicated radio holster. The one that I’m using is a 5.11 AR Magazine  holder (around $24.95 in stores, $19.99 online) that uses MOLLE attachments. The MOLLE straps easily work as a belt loop and the way the 5.11’s work, it holds the radio higher on the hip which makes wearing the radio easier when sitting down. If you use a MOLLE pack or gear bag, you also have the added benefit of being able to attach your radio to your bag if need be.

Marine Division Tactics Course Ongoing at MCAS Beaufort

marines_mawts-1-bw_m2810Savannah – It sounds like there is a Marine Division Tactics Course (MDTC) ongoing at MCAS Beaufort. Once the fog burned off this afternoon, I heard a SNIPER flight of F-5Ns from VMFT-401 working with a SALEM flight of MAG-31 F/A-18s from MCAS Beaufort, SC. In the past, F/A-18s from Beaufort flying as LATCH or SALEM flights have been associated with aircrews involved with in an MDTC. A prerequisite for personnel attending the Weapons and Tactics Instructor Course at MCAS Yuma, the MDTC provides training in aerial combat for both fighter pilots and intercept controllers. The training is conducted by instructors from MAWTS-1 (Marine Aviation Weapons and Tactics Squadron 1 and personnel and aircraft from VMFT-401.

The aerial training takes place in the offshore Special Use Areas off of the South Carolina and Georgia coasts controlled by SEALORD. So far, VMFT-401 has been using their squadron frequencies with the MAG-31 flights apparently using their respective squadron frequencies. MAG-31 flights are apparently also checking in with their Squadron Base on normal Base frequencies and with what sounds like KAISER Base (KAISER is a callsign associated with MAG-31) on 274.500 (normally a VMFA-115 frequency). MCAS Beaufort squadron frequencies can be found on the MilAir page of this blog; other frequencies to monitor for the MDTC are below:

  • 274.500 – KAISER(?) Base
  • 264.925 – VMFT-401 Tac
  • 268.300 – VMFT-401 Tac
  • 284.500 – SEALORD North Primary
  • 349.800 – W-137 Discrete
  • 376.900 – W-137 Discrete

Based on what I’ve been able to find, the MDTC consists of one week of classroom training followed by three weeks of intercept training. I didn’t hear any MDTC flight activity last week, so I’m guessing this is the first of the three weeks of flight training. If I get the chance to hear more, I’ll post an update.
