They must be doing some inter-service activity since 277.6 I believe is a Navy Fleet frequency.

I'd say stream it into Teamspeak but... seems kinda sensitive.

Since us up here in Boston probably won't hear squat since it's offshore.

259.600 in Dudley also, one Aircraft is clear as day, the other is faint but readable.

I heard "FOX-3" on there, I also heard a shout out on 125.125 AM VT ANG's F-16sprimary VHF V-. "Are you guys up"

I don't think Fox 3 is a callsign, I think its a practice missile thing.

Also it is not uncommon for the US Navy F-18s to be training with ANG Air Defense units.

If only I had a real outside antenna, and not custom made piece of coax stripped hanging out the window, cut for UHF.

277.800 is an USN Fleetwide common channel
277.600 is a NORAD freq, has been used as primary NY city CAP (Combat Air Patrol) channel in the past. Has been used recently by the 104th for intercept training.

Made me long for the days of the 102nd here at Otis (My Man) ANGB, when I could monitor them from the ground thru takeoff and into the exercise. Great stuff.

Still active as I type.

I moved this thread to the proper forum, my mistake from last night. I should have posted it here from the start.

Pretty much the same as last night, if only I had a real antenna. I think I hear some of the F-15s talking, as they fly over or fly back to Westfield.

Lots of talk of W-105. I think we will see more and more activity from the 104th as their training intensifies closer to January 2010.

In Janurary 2010, the 104th FW will be assuming the role that the 102nd FW played.

I think for now the VT ANG is doing the air defense alert mission that the 102nd used to do.

They're back!

Sounds like call sign JETHRO, which is used by the FW at Barnes. Very active as I type, various frequencies. I'll stream for a bit in Teamspeak.
