Redeye6 still here?

Hi guys, I have been missing the E-8 in the virtual skies in the last week or 2 (ADS-B), though I may have missed it.. Is it still at Ramstein? Has anyone seen it fly recently? (Secretly hoping it's gone tech so a spare needs to be flown in.. :-))

Re: Nachos anyone? KC-10s still there?

Don't worry Frank, my wife has the same issue, so it's probably me, not you.

The boneyard is in Arizona. Last time I was there (a while ago, true) lots of BUFFs.. :-)

See you at SP one of these days?

Re: Nachos anyone? KC-10s still there?

One was active on ADS-B early this morning. Just transmitting while on the ramp. Later on it was off again.

Re: Spangdahlem Air Base 14-05-2022

Nice! A bit of luck too, without the Extenders it would have been a bit boring.. You sure those were the same 2 Growlers you saw taking off? Could be those 2 returned from a long early morning mission and the 2 you saw depart returned after you left in the afternoon? Otherwise indeed a local mission...

REQ: Advice on antenna

Hi all, recently bought a UBC125XLT and am considering an extra (better) antenna. Since I have zero experience on those and struggle to find a forum or review specifically aimed at military radio traffic, I would like to know your thoughts.

Re: ETAD 11-05-2022

Re: ETAD 11-05-2022

Thanks Reaper. Mmm, so how far down that road are you officially allowed to go? Around the housing area and leave it somewhere near the NE corner of the base or not all on that side? Long tome since I was there, not sure what the signs say.

Thanks JPS! Wasn't aware of that, good to know.

On another note; 38018 seems to be leaving - it's heading NW as RCH134, overhead southern NL currently..
