Coastal Georgia Military Monitoring Recap; November 2022

November 2022 wasn’t the best month. Between Hurricane Nicole to family medical issues during the Thanksgiving Holiday, I didn’t have much radio time. While there may have not been extraordinary events like the USS Ford working off the coast or P-8s on temporary duty in Savannah, the month did provide some interesting listening. Notable during the month:

  • Savannah Tower changed from 119.100 to 125.975 last month and it has continued in use through November. Savannah Tower had been 119.100 for as long as I can remember, so it’s taking some getting used to.
  • There were two rare visitors to the southeast during November: a WC-135 and an RC-135; it’s rare enough to hear one, much less two in a month here in the southeast, but I caught both in one day!
  • Coast Guard Air Station Savannah is in the process of converting from the MH-65D to the MH-65E. The first MH-65E, 6561, arrived in early November, replacing 6576 and 6565 arrived in late November but I’m not sure which MH-65D it replaced.
  • I finally caught the VUP-19 MQ-4C, PE 171, at NS Mayport while it was flying offshore on 28 November
