Note: A new frequency 7992.0 kHz has been uncovered by WUN member Jeff

Haverlah in Texas during monitoring of a STRATCOM exercise on June 25,

2003. The frequency was being used by airborne command post participating

in a STRATCOM communications exercise. No designator has been assigned at

this time.

Other notes on USSTRATCOM related frequencies from Jeff Haverlah.

11244.0 kHz

1. This frequency is a special HF-GCS discrete that is used by *every*

named HF-GCS station for Emergency Action Messages (EAM) and FOXTROT

broadcast. In fact, it has been described as the "broadcast" frequency.

Stations here do not respond to MAINSAIL general calls on this frequency.

2. This frequency is guarded by the Nightwatch 01 (US Air Force E-4

National Airborne Operations Center or NAOC) station (which uses daily

changing callsign aliases) and is paired with 8992.0 kHz.

3. This frequency is used by the apparent USSTRATCOM Looking Glass

mission aircraft for daily EAM transmissions at any time, and used for

repeat EAM transmissions at H+25/H+55 mostly during North American

daylight hours (and at any part of the day during exercises). Paired with

8992.0 kHz. Also guarded by the Glass mission and other U.S. Navy E-6

TACAMO aircraft when active.

Note: The primary mission of the Looking Glass aircraft is the ability to

command, control, and communicate with its nuclear forces. Its highly-

trained crew and staff ensure there is always an aircraft ready to direct

bombers and missiles from the air should ground-based command centers

become inoperable. Looking Glass guarantees that U.S. strategic forces

will act only in the precise manner dictated by the president. On Oct. 1,

1998 the Navy's E-6B Mercury aircraft replaced the USAF EC-135 in the

Looking Glass mission.

4. Used by possible tanker aircraft (maybe on their SIOP mission) passing

4-element groups to "SkyMaster" (NAOC and TACAMO aircraft) during

exercises and paired with 8992.0 kHz. The 4-element groups have been

called "TID traffic" by SKYMASTER aircraft.

5. Used by other U.S. government stations (i.e. Federal Emergency

Management Agency-FEMA, etc) including the static call "Blue Grass" (Mt.

Weather, Virginia) as a frequency to pass "Hotel" messages. These

messages are passed to each other and to the NAOC aircraft (using an

alias separate from that particular day's callsign). This activity is

usually during the third week of each month, is not paired with 8992.0

kHz, and many of the station's use callsigns begin with the letter "A"

(i.e. Axle Rod, Army Ruler, etc).

6. Units here always identify the frequency as 11244.0 kHz and not with a

tactical designator.

6697.0 kHz

1. This frequency is used by the TACAMO aircraft for daily evening/night

(North America) EAM transmissions during the following time slots:

H+07/H+37 by a TACAMO LANT aircraft

H+14/H+44 by a TACAMO PAC aircraft

2. EAMs have been heard at any time during initial broadcast, simulcast

on 8992.0, 11244.0 and on the USSTRATCOM Zulu net frequencies above.

3. This frequencies is also used by possible TACAMO aircraft to

communicate with trigraph identifier stations during exercises (usually

to receive 3-element group traffic from these trigraph stations.)

4. Also is used 24-hours a day by the United Kingdom's station MKL and

their trigraphs (many of these thought to be Nimrod aircraft).

13155.0 kHz

1. This frequency is used by the TACAMO aircraft for daily daytime (North

America) EAM transmissions during the following time slots:

H+07/H+37 by a TACAMO LANT aircraft

H+14/H+44 by a TACAMO PAC aircraft

2. EAMs have been heard at any time during initial broadcast, simulcast

on 8992.0, 11244.0 and on the USSTRATCOM Zulu net frequencies above.

3. The activity on this frequency apparently moved here from 11267.0 kHz

a few years ago. 11267.0 now seems to be quiet probably indicating that

it is no longer used for this purpose.

Other U.S. Navy frequencies heard recently with EAM broadcasts by Jeff

Haverlah and the column editor.

4515.0 4848.0 5680.0 6512.0 6666.0 6686.0 6720.0 6724.0

6778.0 6833.0 6903.0 7501.0 7589.0 8020.0 8971.0 9007.0

9010.0 9036.0 9283.0 10515.5 10805.0 10994.0 11187.0

11255.0 11271.0 13155.0 14698.0 15038.0 15049.0 16117.0

These and other old U.S. Navy HF HICOM (High Command) frequencies have

been active in past with heavy EAM traffic. (See HF-GCS section above

about the demise of the HICOM network)

*U.S. Air Force

High Frequency Global Communications System (HF-GCS)

====================================================

The U.S. Air Force High Frequency (HF) Global Communications System (HF-

GCS) is a worldwide network that currently consist of 15 high-power HF

stations which provide air/ground HF command and control radio

communications between all Department of Defense (DoD) ground agencies,

aircraft and ships. Allied military and other aircraft are also provided

support in accordance with agreements and international protocols as

appropriate. The HF-GCS is not dedicated to any service or command, but

supports all authorized users on a traffic precedence basis.

On Jun 1, 1992, the former Global HF System (GHFS) was created by

consolidating other U.S. Air Force (USAF) and U.S. Navy (USN) HF

networks, including the USAF Global Command and Control System (GCCS),

the Navy’s Ship-to-Shore High Command (HICOM) network, and the dedicated

Strategic Air Command (SAC) Giant Talk System. The goal of the merger was

to develop one worldwide non-dedicated HF network capable of providing

Command and Control (C2) HF communications support to all authorized DoD

aircraft and ground stations. As of 1 October 2002, the former GHFS

network is now known as the HF Global Communications System (HF-GCS).

The old high power HF equipment being utilized within the HF-GCS has now

been replaced with "Scope Command" equipment. Scope Command incorporates

Automatic Link Establishment (ALE) technology for use over HF. Scope

Command is not the name for this network as some have indicated in the

past post to the WUN and other newsgroups. It is the name of the

equipment upgrade being done to the network. In January 2003, all HF-GCS

station transmit and receive equipment is remotely controlled from the

Centralized Net Control Station (CNCS) at Andrews AFB, Maryland.

This ALE technology automates many of the functions performed by the

operator such as selecting the best propagating frequency from

a list of authorized frequencies.

Net Procedures

General Calling - Aircrews use a preliminary call as outlined in ACP-121

US Supp 2 using the collective callsign "MAINSAIL" or the HF-GCS station

call sign (example: Sigonella Global this is Dark 86 on 11175, OVER). HF-

GCS operators require approximately 10 seconds (for automated equipment

configuration) to respond to calls for service. The HF-GCS operator may

request the aircraft change to a discrete frequency for improved and/or

extended service.

Phone Patch Service - Phone patching allows direct voice communications

between ground agencies and aircraft by electronically connecting

telephone circuits to radio transmitters and receivers. Phone patch

service is reserved for official unclassified business only and shouldn’t

exceed five minutes. Patches of more than five minutes or of a sensitive

nature should be run on a discrete frequency. Aircrews requesting a phone

patch must include all information necessary for HF-GCS operators to

complete the call, such as the identity or location of the called parties

and telephone number if known. Phone patches are monitored by HF-GCS

operators and if radio reception isn’t of sufficient quality to complete

the patch, they will attempt to copy the traffic and relay it to

addressees.

Message Relay Service - HF-GCS operators transcribe encoded or plain-text

messages for aircraft or ground stations and forward them to the

addresses by radio or landline. The text of the messages can be in the

form of alphanumerics, code words, plain text, acronyms, and/or numerical

sequences. Aircrews may use "READ BACK" procedures when the message data

is critical, or when an incomplete transmission is suspected due to poor

radio reception. All messages received by Global stations will be

accepted and delivered by the fastest means available according to

precedence and priority.

Published Frequency Listing - HF-GCS stations operate on "core"

frequencies to provide increased "Global" coverage. The published

frequency listing does not reflect complete system frequency

authorizations. These published frequencies will be used for initial

contact, EAM broadcasts, and short term C2 phone patch and message

delivery. Other extended or special services will be moved to each

station’s available "discrete" frequencies. Any and all known discrete

frequencies for these stations have been incorporated below in the HF-GCS

station listings.

Frequency Guide - The frequency guide below is used by units contacting

this net and is designed to optimize their air/ground communications.

Primary HF-GCS Frequencies - 24 hours 8992.0 11175.0

Back up HF-GCS Frequencies - DAY 13200.0 15016.0

Back up HF-GCS Frequencies - NIGHT 4724.0 6739.0

Commonly heard callsigns

DENALI Elmendorf Air Mobility Control Center (AMCC)

HILDA GLOBAL Tanker Airlift Control Center Scott AFB

TRACKER US Air Force Europe Tanker Recce Airlift Control

Center (UTRACC)

MAINSAIL Authorized users may contact and request service from Global

HF System stations by using the general net air-ground call sign

"MAINSAIL". Any Global station hearing the call "MAINSAIL" will respond

and provide the requested service.

S4JG A universal Navy call sign assigned to Patrol Squadrons (VP)

for use in radio checks. Instead of using the briefed, tactical call

sign, the Navigation/Communications operator on the P-3C Orion aircraft

would use S4JG on voice and also teletype to get a communications check

with a Tactical Support Center (TSC), HF-GCS station or Anti-Submarine

Warfare (ASW) Operations Center (ASWOC). In theory by using S4JG, the

tactical call sign is less likely to be compromised.

SKYBIRD The collective call sign for all U.S. Strategic Command

(USSTRATCOM) command posts, launch control centers, Global HF stations,

Air Traffic Control (ATC) towers on Air Combat Command (ACC)/Air Mobility

Command (AMC) host tenant bases, Single Sideband (SSB) HF radio stations,

and air defense sites in Canada.

SKYKING The collective call sign for all Single Integrated Operational

Plan (SIOP) committed aircraft and missile crews. Its meaning is "all

SIOP committed aircraft and missile crews copy the following message."

SKYMASTER The collective callsign to all USSTRATCOM airborne command

post.

Earlier examples of this broadcast schedule can be seen in the various

80s editions of the Grove Shortwave Directories (usually on

page 5 for those that still have them) - Those minutestamps were also

used for the then common "standing by for traffic" calls heard from the

various GIANT TALK ground stations operating under their pre-92 daily

changing callsign aliases.]

The FOXTROT (SKYKING) messages are also common, or at least they used to

be. You should generally hear more than two over any 24 hour period. Of

interest, the preface to the FOXTROT broadcasts that would name the

echoing ground stations have not been heard (here) since maybe sometime

in April 2003 (around the end of major combat in Iraq.) I've heard no

instance of a request to DIEGO GARCIA or THULE or anyone else since

around that time, just the occasional FOXTROT broadcast from ANDREWS or

whoever. They dropped the DECENT, ENLIST, FAIRLY, EYESTRAIN, DEFROSTER

echo requests sometime around Sept 2001 (maybe) to be replaced with

plaintext station names (THULE; DIEGO GARCIA; CYPRUS FLIGHT WATCH) after

9/11, and now since around April 2003 maybe nothing.

Busiest frequencies are 8992.0 ("Eight-Niner") and 11175.0 ("Triple-1"),

which most stations guard around the clock. The others operate on a

schedule which changes twice yearly, on the first of April and October.

The upper sideband (USB) mode is used on all HF-GCS frequencies listed

above.

Note: The data signal you will on 9025.0 kHz is ALE which is a

computerized system that simplifies HF operation (see section below).

Older frequency circulated on the internet continue to list 8968.0 and

17976.0 kHz, but these were removed from HF-GCS service over three years

ago.

The ALE system used by the U.S. Air Force HF-GCS network is designated

MIL-STD-188-141A. You can download a software program developed by

Charles Brain to decode these digital transmissions at the following URL:

http://www.chbrain.dircon.co.uk/.

ALE allows automated ground agency contact by selecting the best station

and best frequency without operator interaction. ALE radios make this

possible by using a datafill that contains frequency, station and other

pertinent information. For ALE radios to operate properly, the radio must

have a loaded datafill, be turned on in the "automatic" mode and remain

there the duration of the flight. If the radio is removed from the ALE

mode, history tables will require time to rebuild and initial

communications may be slightly degraded.

MYSTIC STAR Network

===================

This is a worldwide communications system, operated and maintained by

elements of the United States Army, United States Navy, and United States

Air Force under the control of the Defense Information Systems Agency

(DISA) Operations Center. Its network provides worldwide communications

by directly controlling radio equipment located at Global HF system

stations. It consists of ultra high frequency satellite and HF networks

supporting Presidential, special air, commanders-in-chief, Joint Staff,

very important persons, and command airborne missions. The Mystic Star HF

network consists of: a single master net control station (MNCS) located

at Andrews AFB Maryland, interstation and intersite circuits, and relay

and auxiliary communications subsystems. (Source Air Force Instruction

SHARES coordination stations conduct a weekly SHARES net on the ten SCN

channels every Wednesday from 1600-1800 UTC.

Large scale annual SHARES exercises are conducted in April, August and

December.

SCN Operational Levels

SCN Operational Levels are designed to improve the responsiveness of the

SHARES Coordination Network during emergencies. SCN Operational Levels

are defined as follows:

Operational Level 3 - Conditions normal. No emergency exists. The ten-

channel SCN may be used by SHARES station personnel for training and non-

emergency operations.

Operational Level 2 - Emergency potential exists. Non-emergency

operations on the SCN suspended. SCN monitoring increased. Check-in

windows established on the national and regional nets to receive Stations

Availability Reports.

Operational Level 1 - Emergency exists. SHARES message support required.

National and regional nets maintain full-period operations to receive

Station Availability Reports, to list SHARES message traffic, and to

coordinate the processing of SHARES messages.

*U.S. Federal Aviation Administration

=====================================

HF Recovery Communications (RCOM)

The Recovery Communications (RCOM) Program, mandated by a variety of

United States national level documents including Presidential Executive

Orders and National Security Decision Directives, was established to

encompass all FAA emergency command and control communications (C3)

systems and projects under one program. Emergency C3 systems are defined

as those means of communications that the FAA employs to direct

management, operations, and reconstitution of the National Airspace

System (NAS) in support of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA),

Department of Transportation (DOT), and Department of Defense (DOD)

missions during national disasters or national security emergencies.

The FAA maintains a variety of fixed-position, portable, and

transportable C3 communications systems for use in support of emergency

operations. One such commonly heard C3 system is the RCOM/NARACS High

Frequency/Single Side Band (HF/SSB) Net.

In 1995, the FAA approved the deployment of the RCOM HF/SSB upgrades and

a five-year contract was awarded to Eastern Computer Incorporated (ECI)

for the purpose of upgrading the FAA RCOM/National Radio Communications

System (NARACS) HF network. ECI has installed the RCOM HF/SSB upgrade at

all the FAA Region Offices and Emergency Operations Centers, and is the

final phases of installing the NARACS/ALE upgrades at all Air Route

Traffic Control Centers (ARTCCs).

FAA HF connectivity nets are conducted on Wednesday UTC. The East Coast

net meets at 1545 UTC on 8125.0 kHz with KIT 88 as net control. The West

Coast net was last reported on 13630.0 kHz at 1845 UTC.

*Air Force - RAAF/RNZAF

=======================

The following information comes from the Enroute Supplement Australia

(ERSA) a publication jointly published by the Royal Austrialian Air Force

and Airservices Australia, February 26, 1998 edition, Nav/Comm 1.

1. The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF/Royal New Zealand Air Force

(RNZAF) Air Operations Communications System (AOCS) is a high frequency

radio network providing communications services for the operational

control of RAAF/RNZAF aircraft and HF equipped marine craft [army ground

stations are also commonly heard]. In addition, visiting military

aircraft may use the AOCS when contact with Australia/New Zealand

military authorities is required. The AOCS is not part of, and does not

provide, an air traffic control service, civil or military.

2. The AOCS network consist of six Air Operations Communications

Centres (AOCCs) located at Sydney, Darwin, Townsville, Perth, Auckland

[NZ] and Woodbourn [NZ]. The combined AOCS provides:

A. A General Purpose Net (GPN) on which all AOCCs guard the same three

frequencies. All AOCCs can transmit and receive on these three

frequencies simultaneously.

B. Discrete frequencies are available (if required) at each AOCC and

allocated after initial contact on the GPN.

C. Telephone patch facilities between aircraft and ground appointments.

D. Continuous monitoring of military distress frequency 5696 kHz.

E. Selective Calling (SELCAL): Available to suitably equipped aircraft.

GPN Frequencies:

Day (2100-0900 UTC) 8974.0 11235.0 13206.0 kHz

Night (0900-2100 UTC) 3032.0 5687.0 8974.0 kHz

Military Distress 5696.0 kHz

The RAAF and RNZAF share 8974 with the Spanish Air Force, and 5687 with

the Portugese and German military services.

UKADGE HF Line Designator List

==============================

How to find which frequencies are active. Listen to the Architect

weather broadcast at H+00 and H+30 (see above). If the UKADGE circuits

are active, there will be an announcement after the weather broadcast

with the code-letters for the active frequencies. For example:

"Additional information.. 2.. PK.. tack..401C.. tack.. AG" (which is

repeated twice).

The first number indicates which Air Defense radar station is active

1 - Buchan, Boulmer and Benbecula

2 - Buchan

3 - Boulmer (has not been heard for many years)

4 - Neatishead

The first 2-letter-group is the code for the active HF frequency

from the list below. It is sometimes referred to a the 'JAAWSK

Frequency' (Joint Anti-air Warfare Shore Co-ordination). It

carries most of the voice traffic, including target positions

and Beaver details. This channel also carries frequency

changes and position reports.

The third group is the Charlie squared channel, where AWACS aircraft pass

their radar data over a HF link. Known frequencies are:

2250.5 401A

33??.0 401B (exact freq unknown)

4478.5 401C

6673.5 401D

8500.5 401E

The final group is known as chick co-ordination, where combat

aircraft which are HF-capable can be passed target positions and

other information.

In the example above, Buchan is the ADR station, using 5095 khz

for voice traffic, the AWACS are using 4478.5 khz, and the

chicks are on 4745 khz.

*Joint Maritime Course Frequencies

================================

Three times a year the Royal Air Force hosts a number of military ships,

submarines and aircraft for a series of 2-week exercise around the coast

of the UK. This is known as the JMC - Joint Maritime Course.

The forces are split into two opposing forces, and they use an extensive

network of HF frequencies for voice co-ordination and encoded data

transmissions of radar pictures (known as Link 11). Each HF frequency is

given a KJ designator, and these run from KJ01 up to at least KJ50. Some

of these frequencies are in the UHF military aircraft band. The tie-up

between designator and frequency changes with each JMC course conducted.

During some JMC's some designators are on UHF frequencies in one course

and on HF frequencies in the next course.

The following JMC frequencies are known:

3343.0 3357.0 3805.0 4477.0 4484.0 4502.0 4778.5 4860.5 5045.0

These equations are based upon my own research and analysis using

Spanish-language resources and glossaries. I'm relatively certain that

the equations for CGE and CRC are correct. According to various sources

the Venezualan Army has divided up the country into 6 Military

Regions/Zones. This corresponds nicely to the CRC# identifiers I've seen

so far. The other equations are, as I said my own derivations, and are

open for discussion. I haven't seen enough of the three letter

identifiers (SIB, SIT, SKI, etc) to have any equations for them.

Here are the net/frequency breakdowns that I have come up with so far.
