The Milcom Files - TSM Edition - Now Available on Amazon




As it always seems to be the case, recent world events continue to draw many radio listeners into their radio shacks to tune in on the action using their shortwave radios. software defined radios, and programmable VHF/UHF scanners. In many cases monitoring the HF/VHF/UHF radio spectrum offers the radio hobbyist an opportunity to hear what is really going on behind the scenes without the filters imposed by news media outlets.

Most radio listeners quickly learn that when the world has a crisis, disaster or tensions rise between countries, the military will usually be the first organization called upon to intervene. It pays to monitor military frequencies when international events heat up. Monitoring the military can offer some of the most productive and rewarding listening you will ever experience using your radio. The good news is you do not have to live close to a military installation to hear these communications. But you do need to learn where and when to tune in military communications.

Mention the words "Monitor the Military" and most radio hobbyists will immediately think of military air shows, military aircraft flybys or a whole a host of other activities that can be heard via radio frequencies. There is a big radio frequency spectrum out there to monitor if you know where to listen, you can eavesdrop on some of the most fascinating radio communications you will hear on a scanner or shortwave radio.

Larry Van Horn N5FPW, has been a radio hobbyist for more than 55 years listening to world events and monitoring military radio communications. He has spent over 33 years documenting activity in the military radio spectrum in his monthly Satellite, Utility World, and Milcom (Military Communications) columns in the pages of Monitoring Times, Satellite Times, and The Spectrum Monitor magazines. During this time, he has published a treasure trove of military communication monitoring information.

All his early MT columns have been published into two eBooks by his company Teak Publishing. The first two books in the Milcom Files series cover his columns published in Monitoring Times and have previously been published at Amazon. Book one of The Milcom Files covers the columns published from 1998 to 2006 and sells for US$5.99 at https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B077NN7RQ5. Book Two covers the period 2007 to 2013 and sells for US$6.99 at https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B077NQXH3C.

Teak Publishing is pleased to announce the release of their latest Kindle eBook -- The Milcom Files – The Spectrum Monitor edition by this Amazon bestselling author.

In 2017 Larry joined the Spectrum Monitor writing staff as he continues to chronicle military monitoring in his new monthly TSM Milcom column. Now for the first time, he is publishing all his monthly TSM Milcom columns at Amazon.

This eBook incorporates the first two years of his TSM Milcom columns written from September 2017 to the end of 2018. These columns have documented HF military frequencies (both foreign and US), and VHF/UHF spectrum military frequencies, mostly for U.S. based monitors. This third book in the series has more than 53,400 plus words, and over 200 pages of frequencies, call signs, monitoring tips, and how-to style articles.

Information includes military satellite frequencies, U.S. FAA Air Route Traffic Control Center frequencies, military base profiles, foreign military HF frequencies, airshow frequencies and flight demonstration teams, radio listening equipment, and antennas, and a lot more.

As an extra bonus to buyers of this new edition, they will get his exclusive 2019 TSM Air Show Monitoring Guide published in the March 2019 edition of Spectrum Monitor as part of this new eBook.

This The Milcom Files - TSM Milcom edition eBook is available now on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07RN1ZGLJ/ for US$4.99.

If you are interested in monitoring military communications and own a scanner, shortwave radio, or have an Internet connection for web software defined radio (SDR) monitoring, the Milcom Files TSM 2017-2018 is a must reference on your radio shack shelf.

This book is being released internationally. Amazon customers in the United Kingdom, Germany, France Spain, Italy, Japan, India, Canada, Brazil, Mexico and Australia can order the eBook from Amazon websites directly servicing these countries.

AE61F6 - AE61F9 Who or what are they?

This block of hex codes is very interesting on many different levels. I have seen tie-ups all over the place because of all the mixed signals that have seen in the various intercepts.

Here is what I have seen:
AE61F6 5/13/2019 Mode-S c/s 1720978, Fixer 55
AE61F7 6/6/2019 Mode-S c/s G20979, R20979, Assault (ASLT) 979, LAC5873
AE61F8 7/2/2019 Mode-S c/s 1820980, LAC5875
AE61F9 7/3/2019 Mode-S c/s Raid 91, LAC5876

The first three do not look like C-130s, unless the Army has purchased some. Look at AE61F7. These Mode-S calls G20979, R20979 indicate US Army and National Guard G#####. The AE61F6 1720978 and AE61F8 1820980 are US Army serials. But all have either a LAC Mode-S or Fixer 55 call which is used by Lockheed down in Marietta and I see here almost daily for the 130J testing program.

Finally, I have seen the Raid ## call used by the 27SOW/9SOS Night Wings out of Cannon AFB, NM. (See below)

AE61F9 17-5876/18-20 RAID91 2019-07-03 13:30:08 MC-130J United States USAF | 5731 20825

Not sure what is going on here but does anyone know if the Army has purchased some 130 rolling stock? Or is Lockheed intentionally miscoding these to fool those of us reporting their test? Or is it something different? These blocks are preassigned by DoD to Majcoms and then usually further assigned to airframes and or tactical use. This block fascinates me. Comments and thoughts are most welcomed at this point. Send them along to the email addy in the masthead.

Happy 4th to you all and keep our military servicemen and their families in your thoughts and prayers as we celebrate the day we declared our independence.
