Re: Springfield MA Area Milair U/VHF Logs Summary -- March 2018

Both "YANKEE" & "RHODY" with likely use their command post frequencies for air/air and air/ground (drop coordination). Even with lead aircraft talking with ATC, the aircraft following also monitor ATC and respond accordingly to leads instructions usually on the ATC frequency.
