ZOMBE35 is showing on my ADS-B via MLAT as I type this. At work so haven't heard any traffic.

He appears to be orbiting in one of the refueling tracks (can't find my map so not sure which one). Each one has dedicated primary and secondary frequencies though.

Hearing chatter on 238.9, sounds like refueling, and listed as AR-212 which is over northern Maine. Not sure if the data from the 2010 map we have is entirely accurate or this is completely separate from what we are watching. Very weak signals so trying to pull out some callsigns.

383.6 which is AR81 active now, so the above was likely separate. Much stronger signal here.

Got the frequency scanner in SDR# ripping now, immediately caught some chatter on 247.05 pertinent to refueling. If you use SDR# this is an excellent search tool, it'll scan the entire milair band in a matter of a few seconds and not miss any traffic when set up properly.

Hearing ZOMBE35 on 247.05.

As an example, in the brief time since I fired that up:

264.85
238.9
284.6
373.6
284.75
360.9
263.2
289.0
269.3
290.3

all have traffic. Using an Airspy Mini with a non-resonant antenna, latest SDR# with the frequency scanner plug-in.

If you can, monitor the Nantucket trunk for any new TGs that may show up too.
