20806.0 USB FAF CNOA channel ‘CAPITOLE’ & ‘FAF4010’ enroute towards West Africa
8021.0 USB FAF CNOA? channel ‘DAMO10’ with ‘GENERAL’
‘DAMO10’ gave ETA & ETA max to ‘GENERAL’ for him and also for LETHAL31 (unid)
DAMO is known to be the Grumman E-2 Hawkeye from the French Navy carrier Charles de Gaulle, last time I’ve heard him was during the Lybia2011 conflict..
I suppose those 2016 comms belongs to whatever happens nearby Mosul these days..
RAF Volmet is active on 16557.0 USB
Modulation was pretty noisy as shown on the above screenshot
rebroadcast or operator error ?
A link-11 activity is present on 7833.0 USB today
7833 is a common FAF E3CF frequency (2G ALE heard in the past)
Current 2G ALE frequencies between various CYRANOs (201,202,203,204) & MOBE3F (Main Operation Base, BA942 Lyon Mont Verdun or BA702 Avord ?!)
Recent activity from the FAF made me searching for new stuff and it’s interesting to see the French Air Force making pretty nice military videos..
Here are two showing the past Serval operation in Mali & the current Chammal operation against Daech in Iraq.
Screenshot above was taken from an official FAF video some days ago..
It clearly shows the HF link between French Awacs (on theater) & BA942 Lyon Mont Verdun (ex CCOA/ new CNAO)
Taverny Base (BA921) is not concerned into any operational HF comms anymore (since July 2011) & i hope one day the listeners community will stop logging it..
Interesting aircrafts tonight..
Belgium Air Force F-16A’s (BASIC11, BASIC12, BASIC21, BASIC22, MATRX52)
French Air Force E-2C Hawkeye (DAMOB00)
US Air Force CV-22B Osprey (KNIFE75, KNIFE76)
As shown in the screenshot above, RAF Volmet tx had some RF issues on Sep, 29 2014..
The problem has been solved now (Sep, 30 2014)
5450.0 USB was also impacted
