Upon request I will be reviving this thread, I will be following the other intel channel topic layouts (making a new one every few weeks or if it exceeds a certain number of messages) and will be posting mostly in the afternoon and evening or whenever I find time, anyone else is more than welcome to post as well. I will also be uploading a simple tutorial on how to use webSDR and other SDRs as soon as I find time to make one. For those wondering, I will be posting EAMs, SKYKINGs and other information from USAF frequencies

Please note: These EAMs and SKYKINGs are coded and cannot be broken by anyone other than the person sending and the person receiving them. Please do not ask me what they mean as I do not know.

Cheers for that. It's always good to have signal intel. Even if we can't decode it, we can tell something is happening when there is a significant increase in traffic.

EAM Swarm underway on 4724USB at around 3.02 kHz.
4 30chars back to back, followed closely by a 148 character EAM.
Operator of that particular callsign was spitting out his all stations initial portion of the transmissions.
Either a decent chunk of information passing hands, or it may be related to SecDef's travels this week/weekend.

Situation requires further monitoring.

Update: An additional 4 standard length messages have followed in quick succession.

Update: Minimum of 3 additional standard length EAM's back to back from the same call sign "Art Show"

Update: Four additional standard length transmissions from same call sign since last update.

Swarm abated shortly after 2PM Eastern Standard Time.

Did you by chance catch any recordings?

Seems to be a pretty busy day compared to the last few, although Vigilant Ace is underway and some of these EAMs are likely related to that.
EAMs since 9:50am CT:
FIYHJ5 - ZGUORJRFFN4HTQYIPE475MG6 - BOOT JACK
BOOTJACK STANDING BY FOR TRAFFIC
DGGZHP - R6A5DK2VWBGJ7NZRJ5CZYZ5P - BOOTJACK

Appreciate your efforts on signals. Hard to track this with a phone and precious bandwidth, thanks

There was a beefy SKYKING swarm last night around midnight CT, 6 SKYKINGs within 20 minutes, one was disregarded and everything has been normal since.

There was a "Standby for High Precedence Traffic" last night followed by a swarm of 3 normal length EAMs. High Precedence Traffic (HPT) is usually a good indicator it's likely to be legit emergency/priority traffic beyond the normal orders, diplomatic cables, etc.

There were multiple (5+) messages to SKYMASTER last night, SKYMASTER is one of USSTRATCOM's Airborne Command Post planes. The last time any traffic to or from SKYMASTER was heard was in the beginning of November, 2017
