Could this potentially be the Open Skies initiative with the Russians? Diplomatic clearance would certainly fit and near the end I thought I heard something about "skies", though it was garbled.

Is it normal for TACAMOs to be up?

2 back to back EAMS on 8992 . Sounded like from Pedro? I haven' been on as much lately but the format seems slightly different

edit: It just could have been a new operator. The guy didn't seem as confident as the ones who usually do EAMs are.

I agree. Especially with Russia announcing their SLBM test launches.

So, it was quite an interesting night, folks? No wonder that I slept restlessly... :D

He is right and a whole lot of test counts this morning but nothing major and really real calm from the norm today like last night kind of scary

I must be doing something wrong. From March - July of 2015 I was able to hear everything fine......but since August I have not heard anything but static. I am on 8992 USB and 11375 USB like normal but nothing. Should I have the squelch checked/unchecked? I miss hearing the messages.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks
