032414-300900.mp3 BALLAST(sp) Unknown Aircraft Calling Ground Target to Hit 03/24/2014: These comms were recorded on 300.900 MHz. I am not sure where they were however this frequency is listed as an Avon Park freq. This is the first I've ever logged comms on this freq. Aircraft callsigns involved were SPAD 21, SPOOKY (possible C-130 Gun Ship), RAPTOR 12, MASSEY(sp) BALLAST(sp) and STRIKER.
022314-235250.mp3 USAF Thunderbird Flyover Comms at Daytona 500 Race. 02/23/2014: These comms were recorded on 235.250 MHz, Thunderbird Control frequency. You'll be able to hear the pilot of Thunderbird 7 located somewhere at the track talking to Thunderbird 1 in order to get the timing of the flyover perfect. You'll hear him say "we're 4 seconds early" meaning the person singing the National Anthem was going to finish 4 seconds early, and of course the Thunderbirds made the adjustment....just amazing!
021214-293600.mp3 F-15's dogfighting over the Atlantic, E-3B calling the shots. 02/12/2014: Just another typical day of listening to Military Air Traffic training off the Atlantic Coast of Florida... FANG callsign is that of Florida Air National Guard F-15's THUMPER callsign is the backend call of an E-3B out of the 552nd Air Control Wing, Tinker AFB. The frequency was 293.600 MHz. The best I can tell, this training was taking place about 60 miles East of Jacksonville.
Possible NASA Flight Testing? 02/13/2014: For the last two days I've run into what sounds like flight testing on 229.000 MHz. Yesterday an aircraft, callsign PROJECT, started with a cuban eight maneuver then called remaining fuel. He did a total of 10 maneuvers, each time calling out fuel. Then he was done. Today same aircraft was talking about 'max roll', talking about reviewing tapes, and a lot of talk about gimbels. I believe this is a frequency used by NASA, and I"m about 30 miles north of Kennedy Space Center.
sb-2014-1630-2300est.mp3 Super Bowl Comms Combat Air Patrol & Police Helos 02/02/2014 @ 1630 - 2300 EST. This recording is of the Combat Air Patrol (CAP), NORAD (HUNTRESS), and Customs Border Patrol (OMAHA) comms while flying cover for the Super Bowl. There are some police helo comms mixed into this recording. After posting what I thought the good CAP frequencies would be on LiveATC.net Tom added the freqs to LiveATC.net streaming audio system. They captured some good CAP mission audio. I thank Tom for allowing me to use the audio on MilAirComms.com. Please pay a visit to Dave's website LiveATC.net for some excellent civilian aviation info, freqs, streaming audio and some funny recorded audio. Thanks Dave, Tom and LiveATC.net.
012114-273900.mp3 Military Aircraft Declaring Emergency 01/21/2014 @ 1524 EST A pair of aircraft were talking on 273.900 MHz. This freq is a Florida Air National Guard SOF frequency. One of the aircraft on this freq declares an emergency. Never found out who it was or much more than what is in the recording. Its not the best recording, but it is something you don't hear everyday.
120413-375700.mp3 Video Type Tones on MilAir UHF 12/05/2013 @ 1345 EST Strange series of tones on 375.700 MHz. This frequency is being used by BEAR (E-2C) in support of the COMPTUEX exercises off the Central Florida coast.

About half way though this recording you'll hear BANSHEE 16 ask the female (the one with the cute voice!) 'How many chicks you have on board?'.
080313-233400.mp3 Unknown Foreign Voices on 233.400 MHz for the second time. 08/29/2013 @ 1115 EDT 1 pilot with a foreign voice makes reference to the "Space Shuttle Facility". If you scroll down you'll see another recording on this frequency, also with foreign voices.
080813-330200.mp3 Mystery Tones on 330.200 MHz 08/08/2013 @ 1240 EDT A week or so ago I ran across this frequency in a search. The short tone's repeat every 2 minutes, at times there will be a 3 minute gap before repeating every 2 minutes. This frequency is used by ILS Glideslope's however the nearest airport with a glideslope on this frequency is 50 miles away. I don't think I'm picking up a glideslope. Any thoughts?
080313-233400=convoytoandros.mp3 Andros Island Secret Base still operating. 08/03/2013 @ 1002 EDT I heard CONVOY 3968 calling Patrick Control on 225.050 MHz asking Patrick about weather while flying to Andros Island.
080313-233400.mp3 Unknown Foreign Voices on 233.400 MHz 08/03/2013 @ 1423 EDT This frequency I found a few days ago and was unable to identify anything other than a callsign that sounded like RECAST. However today (08/03/2013) I catch several transmissions with a very heavy foreign accent. Parts of the transmission don't sound like English.
tbirddaytona500-022612.mp3 USAF Thunderbirds - Daytona 500 Flyover 02/26/2012 @ 1300 EST Thunderbirds taking to Daytona Approach on 322.3000 MHz regarding the Fly-Over for the Daytona 500 Race. Interesting observation, none of the published 'TBIRD' frequencies were used.
hawk-01-30-2012-266625.mp3 HAWK flight (VFA-136, F-18E) 01/30/2012 @ 1500 EST Comms of F-18E Hornests inroute to USS Enterprise from Pine Castle range talking about people listening in. About 35 seconds into the recording you'll hear 1 pilot use the "F" word. Don't let your children listen! This was on 266.625 MHz.
dragnet-01-06-2012-283400.mp3 DRAGNET (AWACS aircraft) Calling Air Targets 01/06/2012 @ 1600 EST Some nice comms of an AWACS (Callsign Dragnet) directing various Navy Fighters to air targets. These comms probably took place off the Georgia and/or North Florida coast. In the middle of the recording you'll hear DRAGNET climbing to FL250 (25,000') to allow a LIFEFLIGHT aircraft to pass. These comms were recorded on 283.4000 MHz
sts135-07-21-11-0555-259700.mp3 STS-135 A/G Comms - Last Shuttle Landing 07/21/2011 @ 0555 EDT (The End). This is the Air/Ground comms from the Shuttle (STS-135) as it lands at the Kennedy Space Center. Comms recorded from Ponce Inlet, FL.
sts135-072011-0646edt-259700.mp3 STS-135 A/G Comms 07/20/2011 @ 06:46 EDT. I was picking up STS-135 in orbit on 259.7000 MHz AM. While its common to hear Air/Ground comms on this freq from the shuttle during lunch and landing, its a rare event to hear this freq active during orbit.
sts135-07-08-11-259700.mp3 STS-135 A/G Comms 07/08/2011 @ 11:26 EDT. This is the actual Shuttle-Ground radio commuications on 259.7000 MHz AM. During the first couple calls you can hear both sides of the comms, the ground xmitter is located just 1/2 mile south of me at the Ponce De Leon (PDL) Tracking Station. Here Is More Info On PDL. After the 2nd call you do not hear PDL because the groundside of comms are switched to another station, PDL usually is used only until "Go At Throttle Up" call is made. Its fitting, the last shuttle lunch had the most comms ever on this frequency! This is a VOX recording so you don't have long pauses between comms.
sts134-05-16-11-259700.mp3 STS-134 A/G Comms 05/16/2011 @ 0900 EDT. This is the actual Go For Throttle Up Call. This recording was of A/G comms on 259.7000 AM. You'll also hear the negative return call. This is a VOX recording so you don't have long pauses between comms.

At the time of this recording there were 14 soles on board and 2 hours fuel. This recording is of LIMA KILO 263 talking with SEALORD controller on 267.5000 MHz. Sorry the audio is a bit low, not sure as to the reason as signal strength here was good. LIMA KILO 263 then switched to Jacksonville Approach 118.000 MHz, again stressing she had declared an emergency.
jetblue136_emergency.mp3 JET BLUE 136 About to Declare Emergency 04/10/2011 @ 1420 EDT. You will hear JETBLUE136 talking with their Dispatch/Maintence on 131.175 MHz. On take-off from Ft. Myers aircraft made a hard jerk to the right. At first pilot thought it was an engine failure the jerk was so hard. They are now under impression it is a landing gear strut failed. They are continuing to JFK, when in contact with Washington Center they will then Declare an emergency and land JFK. CLICK HERE for a map of were Jet Blue 136 was shortly after (about 10 minutes) the recording was made.
