Coastal Georgia Military Monitoring Recap; December 2022

December is always a short month for military monitoring. With the Christmas and New Year’s holidays so close together, there generally isn’t a lot of activity from just before Christmas to the new year. This year was no different; there was little activity to listen to between 23 December and 31 December.

  • Late in the month, Savannah TRACON began using 134.875 in addition to the usual VHF frequencies 118.400, 120.400, and 125.300. 134.875 has been used periodically in the past, but not for extended periods of time; we’ll see how long it gets used this time.
  • The MH-65D to MH-65E conversion at Coast Guard Air Station Savannah continued; 6561 and 6565 arrived in November and 6530 arrived in December (6530 was previously at CGAS Savannah as a MH-65D prior to being upgraded to an E-model)
  • A group of Netherlands Air Force F-16s (NETHERLANDS AF 3##) returned to Europe from Florida early one morning and I managed to catch them refueling with their supporting tanker as they flew north along the east coast. A Netherlands Air Force Gulfstream also visited the Gulfstream Service Center in December.
