North-Central Florida Mil Logs 9/10/2003 & 9/11/2003

With the extra amount of Military traffic relating to the USS Enterprise
Strike Group Exercise
(http://www.redwaveradio.com/) I simply
haven't been able to log all the traffic.  But here is just a sample of
what I could log in the last two days.   Even if you  have no interest
in UHF or VHF will even have a chance to catch some comms on HF (2370
KHz & 5399.6 KHz USB have been just about non-stop).

If you're in the Florida or Georgia area and have wanted to give MilAir
a try here is your chance.  Start by programming in the freqs from my
following logs and if you actually have your coax plugged into your
scanner you WILL hear something.  If not, return your scanner for repair
J   Heck even on a *** ducky I've been getting many comms.

Thanks Joe,
Be sure to check out my Audio Library at
