Just another typical day of listening to Military Air Traffic training off the Atlantic Coast of Florida...

This recording was made about an hour ago.

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.

Enjoy,
George

If you understand military brevity codes it makes quite a lot of sense. That is the primary "language" of fighter pilots.
For example: when they talk about "Bulls" they are referring to a reference point (usually a VOR or set of coordinates) that they measure their heading and distance from. So a call of "Target, bulls two seven zero, thirty five" would mean that the target is due west of Bullseye at 35 NM.

You can find most of the multiservice tactical brevity code here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiservice_tactical_brevity_code

BRA is a big one you'll hear in my recordings, AWACS will say "FANG1 BRA 290 20 26000 HOT HOSTILE" 

That is AWACS telling  FANG  (FL Air National Guard F-15 in this case) the Bearing, Range, Altitude of Hostile Target.

Another common one is WINCHESTER, that means the fighter is out of weapons.

And the one my ears will perk up for is "PUSH TO"  When you hear PUSH TO and a series of numbers, those number are the frequency he is switching to.  Great way to find new frequencies.  Sometimes you'll hear "PUSH TO 7 AUX".  Just like your car radio, some military radios have pre-set buttons, in this case he's going to switch to the frequency labeled 7AUX.  Or sometimes it might just be a frequency card and he'll look for the freq labeled 7 AUX.

I wasn't going to post it to my MilAirComms.com website, for us its an average run-of-the-mill audio recording.  Us down here in Central FL hear it everyday. 

I had just posted it to LiveATC.net to share with others who don't normally get to hear that kind of stuff.

But if you would like I can post it on MilAirComms.

Thanks for Listening,
George

I personally would appreciate it since I could share it with a few buddies (vets) who do not have a LiveATC login. Perhaps they could hear it on your site without having to create an account (at least for the tine being).  This particular recording, to me as an "outsider" is equally as interesting as other clips I've listened to on your site.  You provide a wonderful service to low-tech old farts like me.  grin
