same this side, hopping they have not gone digital or undertaken the ten yearly change of their air to air and studs.

saying that to not hard Waddington or crewel of the last few days, they are both usely busy.

this points me towards the have changed around the channel they work on. has London Mill on UHF was a in use but not that busy like it should be.

one to watch I think for a few more weeks, they may not be flying due to the high winds

Hi, first post here so hello to all.

Quite a bit of activity here two days ago (25/02/14). I'm in the Wye Valley 4 miles North(ish) of Hay-on-Wye.

Aircraft buzzing around most of the day but no low level so they must have had their target else where in another valley.

This is the first time I have managed to tune into the proper frequency for what is actually happening around me using my Uniden UBC3500XLT and I'm still struggling with how to use it especially if I don't use it for a while.

Anyway, took some notes as it seems they were out of Coningsby when I check my books?

242.5000mhz 25/02/14 all afternoon lots of air activity.

267.5000mhz 25/02/14 19:45 some activity during the evening. Not confirmed though as I was unable to catch any discussion as per the earlier activity.

Some of discussion heard:- Havoc two one / Havoc two two / low level on target etc / stranger at 3000.
