The Quarantine Logs – Quarantining and Recuperating with the Radios; Wednesday 26 May 2022

I’m getting better each day, but I still tire easily. Last night, a GA ANG Facebook post illuminated what’s been going on with the drops by 165th AW and a contractor aircraft that I’ve been at Fort Stewart and Wright AAF this week: they’re part of SWAMP AVENGER, an exercise at the CRTC/ADC involving 546th… Read More The Quarantine Logs – Quarantining and Recuperating with the Radios; Wednesday 26 May 2022

The Quarantine Logs – Quarantining and Recuperating with the Radios; Wednesday 25 May 2022

Another day of Quarantine Logs from Savannah. I’m still not up to talking on the radio, but I enjoyed another day of listening. I also checked into the Georgia DMR net last night through its online portal at NetQSO.com and listened to it. Hunter AAF 124.975/279.575 – Tower -ARMY 26596 (UH-60L, 95-26596, A/2-3 AVN) -ARMY… Read More The Quarantine Logs – Quarantining and Recuperating with the Radios; Wednesday 25 May 2022

Coastal Georgia Military Monitoring Recap – April 2022

April was a fairly average Military Monitoring month in Coastal Georgia. Nothing in particular stood out except for units beginning to arrive at the Savannah Air Dominance Center at Savannah-Hilton Head IAP for May’s Sentry Savannah exercise. It was also nice to see the B/2-3 AVN CH-47Fs at Hunter AAF begin to use the HOOKER… Read More Coastal Georgia Military Monitoring Recap – April 2022

Colonial Lowcountry Road Trip Radio Report; 20/21 March 2022

On Sunday and Monday, I took a road trip to the South Carolina Lowcountry near Charleston to learn more about the Colonial history of Lowcountry South Carolina and visit three Colonial historic sites: Drayton Hall, Colonial Dorchester, and Middleton Place.

Space Coast Mini Road Trip Radio Report; 13-15 February 2022

Earlier this week, I took my parents down to the Space Coast to visit the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and Canaveral National Seashore for their anniversary. Since this was a family trip, there wasn’t as much time for radio as there was on the January Space Coast Road Trip, but things were still productive… Read More Space Coast Mini Road Trip Radio Report; 13-15 February 2022

Coastal Georgia Military Monitoring Recap; January 2022

January 2022 was a fun month on the radios. This recap expands its usual boundaries a bit because of my Space Coast Road Trip; during that trip I was able to listen to Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, and Patrick Space Force Base along with other Central Florida military communications. During the… Read More Coastal Georgia Military Monitoring Recap; January 2022

Space Coast Road Trip Radio Report; 10-15 January 2022

This year, for vacation, I took another road trip to the Space Coast of Florida. Instead of staying in the Merritt Island/Port Canaveral area this time, I decided to stay in the Titusville area, closer to the Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Space Force Station. On Monday, I drove down to Titusville and stopped… Read More Space Coast Road Trip Radio Report; 10-15 January 2022

Coastal Georgia Military Monitoring Recap; December 2021

Between my work schedule and curtailed activity due to holidays, December is almost always one of the slower months of the year monitoring-wise. This December was no different, but it still turned out to be an interesting month on the radios. The best catch of the month was the first Norwegian Air Force P-8A; I… Read More Coastal Georgia Military Monitoring Recap; December 2021

American Revolution Southern Campaign Weekend Road Trip Radio Report; 25-27 September 2021

In 2019, I had planned a vacation to visit three American Revolution Southern Campaign battlefields in northern South Carolina: Musgrove Mill, Cowpens, and Kings Mountain. Unfortunately, there was a government shutdown at the time, so Cowpens and Kings Mountain being national parks, were closed. I planned a road trip to visit Cowpens and Kings Mountain… Read More American Revolution Southern Campaign Weekend Road Trip Radio Report; 25-27 September 2021
