ADF CALLSIGNS

A tradition of Australian squadrons is to maintain some of the same callsigns regardless of newer aircraft being introduced.
Some current squadron callsigns listed date back several decades.

Callsigns marked "confirmed" have been either logged by our listeners in the previous 12 months, or are sourced from (unclassified) ADF documents and defence sources.

Other callsigns listed are from my previous logs dating back to the 1990's. I have updated the aircraft type to reflect the current equipment in use by the SQN that the callsign was originally used by.

This list includes Australian Air Force, Army & Navy aircraft.


FORMATIONS
Formation flights will most often append the following names to the unit callsign - indicating a formation flight and its size/composition:

BLACK
BLUE
RED
WHITE
YELLOW


OPS FREQUENCIES
The Ops frequencies listed may or may not be confirmed, and should be considered not reliable.
They are listed only for your reference.
Ops frequencies are still in the same band although may employ encryption or use frequency hopping.
Due to security protocols, domestic training and exercise flights do not normally use encryption - so you may be able to monitor UHF OPS frequencies for some of these aircraft in Australian airspace.

Frequently Used Unencrypted

234.900, 238.200, 253.600, 256.500, 287.800, 356.500, 278.200, 288.600, 301.100, 301.500, 314.600, 321.200, 324.600, 335.800, 375.400 -
You can also monitor aerodrome ATC, area CTAF frequencies, the inter-pilot frequency of 123.45 MHz, or 127.9 MHz for most air shows. 
Consult ERSA for area frequency listings.
