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.

Airshow Update: F-22 Flight Demo Team Frequency

F-22 Raptor makes historic flight with Blue Angels



One of the more well-known airshow related frequencies that I have documented in my annual airshow guides is 384.550 MHz. Users of this frequency include:

USAF F-15 Flight Demo Team (West), USAF F-16 Flight Demo Team, the USAF Heritage Flight, USAF A-10 Thunderbolt Demonstration Teams, and USAF Combat Search and Rescue (SAR) Demonstrations.

I can now add the USAF F-22 Flight Demo Team (Raptor c/s) to this list. You do not even have to be near an airshow to hear activity on this frequency. These teams also use it for air-air comms as they transit x-country to and from airshows.

Be sure to add 384.550 MHz to your Milcom scanner loadout.

Sikorsky gets contract to build six presidential helicopters

Navaltoday.com is reporting that Sikorsky has received a $542 million contract to build six VH-92A helicopters for the presidential lift mission.

“The team has efficiently leveraged a proven platform with cutting edge government mission systems for rapid agile development of the next helicopters to fly Presidential missions,” said James F. Geurts, assistant secretary of the Navy for research, development, and acquisition.
The VH-92A is expected to achieve initial operational capability in late 2020. It will increase performance and payload over the current presidential helicopters, VH-3D and VH-60N, that have been serving over 40 years.s

Russian SU-35 makes “unsafe intercept” of US Navy Poseidon over the Mediterranean

From NavalToday.com

A Russian SU-35 fighter jet intercepted a US Navy P-8A Poseidon aircraft in international airspace over the Mediterranean Sea on June 4.

While the first and third interaction was deemed safe, the US Navy said the second interaction was determined to be unsafe due to the SU-35 conducting a high speed pass directly in front of the mission aircraft.

The crew of the P-8A reported wake turbulence following the second interaction. The duration of the intercept was approximately 28 minutes.

The three intercepts occurred over the course of 175 minutes.

“While the Russian aircraft was operating in international airspace, this interaction was irresponsible. We expect them to behave within international standards set to ensure safety and to prevent incidents, including the 1972 Agreement for the Prevention of Incidents On and Over the High Seas (INCSEA). Unsafe actions? increase the risk of miscalculation and potential for midair collisions,” the navy said.

It was also noted that the Poseidon was operating consistent with international law and “did not provoke this Russian activity”.
