HF freq. 8.131 is active, so presumably something's out & about.


Russians still active on 8131 USB. The Russian Morse network is also active 8112 Kilohertz CW (Ground Control) 8990 Kilohertz CW (Aircraft).

8112 CW sending out W radio channel morse markers every 20 minutes for 2 minutes from the hour.

Morse still active as of 1240 GMT.

Excellent website for listening to the HF Frequencies.

8.131 & 8.112 still active ; Not heard anything on 8.990 all day ( which doesn't mean much )
Q9R62 still working ARA-10
There's a French C-135FR up in the SW Approaches which has been up for a while, so don't know if they're also involved.

RAF Sentry up

Postby westie38 on Thu 11 May 2017, 6:57 pm

ADS-B Exchange is showing NATO30 (RAF Sentry AEW1) up at the moment flying multiple circular orbits around York and East Yorkshire. What is interesting is it's overall route from Waddington, then across to Poland where it conducted multiple orbits around the country before returning to its present position (as at 19:55). They must be looking forward to getting back home for some tea? Worth a look.
