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)

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
BRICKWALL       Osan Air Mobility Control Center (AMCC)
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.

Note: It would appear that these designators have changed and reports on
this system would be appreciated. Also 12112.0 now appears to be part of
the FNARS net and has been observed with FEMA ALE traffic. The designator
is unknowna and it is not known which frequency above may have been
replaced, if any.
Jack Metcalfe reported on the last weekend in July a new series of
frequencies for the FEMA ALE net that have replaced the frequencies
above. Please note the following frequencies are being used:
10899.0  11108.0  12112.0  13894.0  14885.0  14899.0  14908.0
The information below was published in official MARS documents that are
openly available on several internet websites. According to these MARS
documents these designators are to be used by the membership in order to
provide some sort of security for the FEMA National Emergency
Coordination Net (NECN). The various MARS branches are suppose to use the
designators below instead of announcing frequencies on the air.

*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
