Military Air Activity Tonight

#1 Post by N1RGR » 06 Aug 2009 21:36

A lot of military air activity tonight @ 2130 on 277.6,259.9 Air to Air and Huntress 234.600. We may see an increase in activity do to the fact that a russian sub is being tracked 200 miles off the US east coast. I read this info in a local news paper the other day. Call signs noted on the huntress freqes were crazy 3 and Fox 3.

I'm getting comms in 259.900. I'm using my Yaesu FT-7800 with a 2m Ringo Ranger for an antenna.

I did see what looked like a J-Hawk (not USCG) in the Milford, MA area heading northeast about 18:30.

Was it dark green or black? It so it was a UH-60 Black hawk.

I'm not sure if anyone can monitor HF nets but 8762.00 USB has some digital mode. It's narrow like MSFK/AMTOR.

It's sure not HAM.

After 2200hrs the comms faded out not sure if they moved out of range or the birds landed.I catch a lot of the activity on the NORAD freqs in the late AM and early evenings from my location.
