Could have went livid on this one. I was waiting at a unit's hq west of me for someone to arrive. On the radio, I heard one member call another, and asked if their HF had dried out. A wing issue HF at that. All I kept telling myself was that they knew what they were doing. Luckily, the radio had dried out, and had no long term damage.

I AM LAUGHING SO HARD RIGHT NOW!  I have my scanner set to the local fire dispatch, this is what I just heard.

"4352, dispatch"
"Dispatch, 4352 go ahead"
"Respond to call at <address>.  88 year old woman is stuck on the toilet and needs assistance getting back to her wheelchair."

Oh believe me, I have the full respect for the crew that responded to that one.  But when your room is dead silent save a computer hum, and that just comes up out of nowhere, its pretty dang funny!

At SCWG's SAREVAL, I was working Ground VHF, and the guy in the room next to me was working Air VHF, so we could hear bits of each other's traffic owing to repeaters and the half-window for passing papers. Well, it seems that one of the aircraft was getting too far ahead of the ground team, so the ground team asked the aircrew to slow down. Their response? "Roger, we can do that if you can do 120."

Early morning of a SAREX before any aircraft were launched we were monitoring the local unicom in the comm room. We overhear, "Cherokee XXXX climbing to flight level two thousand five hundred."

I pick up the microphone and to the other radio operator's alarm reply, "Cherokee XXXX contact Houston Space Center on eight three five point two g'day".

But alas, I did not press the PTT switch.  ;D

On a CW net (Morse Code for you guys under 40), I was operating in a foreign country when I heard the following exchange:

E8Z DE B4D (DE means "this is")

INT QRT K (What time is it? Over)

B4D DE E8Z (E8Z was the net control)

QFA ZZZ K (quit "farting" around, I'm trying to sleep, Over)

E8Z DE B4D (calling back to the net control)

ZBM2 AR (put a competent operator on this frequency, Out)

:::Nothing but silence:::

(It's a real knee-slapper if you're an old CW guy)  :D

Been listening to Air Force One, and its escourts all day out of Cleveland Hopkins. Not too much traffic, but still a blast to hear on the radio.

Reminds me of the first Crocodile Dundee movie where at the end Mick has to use three people to get a message through a crowd.

SHORT FINAL

Romance in the air is alive and well. While on a CAP flight I heard the following over departure control:

Control:
Bonanza 123, squawk 4567.

A short while later ...

Control:
Bonanza 123, do you have a passenger named [woman's first name] aboard?

Bonanza 123:
Affirmative.

Control:
Can you put her on? We are holding an important message for her.

Bonanza 123:
Stand by.

[pause]

Bonanza 123 (woman's voice):
This is [woman's name].

Control:
We have been asked to relay a message to you from [man's name] in [aircraft number]. Are you ready to copy?

[pause]

Bonanza 123 (woman's voice):
Yes.

Control:
[Man's name] sends the following message: "Will you marry me?"

Bonanza 123:
[garbled transmission]

Control:
We didn't get that. What is your answer?

Bonanza 123 (woman's voice):
I would be honored.

Control:
Bonanza 123, we copy and will relay.

[pause]

Cap Flight 2237:
Cap Flight 2237 offers best wishes to the bride.

Delta 0000:
Delta 0000 offers best wishes to the bride.

Control:
Bonanza 123, Cap Flight 2237 and Delta 0000 send best wishes to the bride.

Bonanza 123 (woman's voice again):Thank you.

CAP Flight 2237:
Nice to know romance on the airways is alive and well. Over 3,000 hours up here, and I never heard anything like that.

Control:
Me either. We have never played cupid before.

Nah. Just listening to ATC. I'm sure it costs more than what you and I spend on food for a month alone though.

This was on the radio at work:

D: Ambulance XXX enroute 1908, caller states she has been stabbed in her crotch, she claims she cannot get the object out.... she is bleeding heavily.

A: Uh... 10-4...uh... dispatch, has PD been notified?

D: Negative, caller states the object is a sex toy.

A: Uh... 10-4 dispatch, thank you

The soda I was drinking suddenly sprayed against the windshield, which is pretty far when it comes out your nose. My partner was in a similar state.

2008 ORWG Encampment

We were driving back to the RTI from the Air N.G. Base, and the chaplain gets on the radio and says

"That large, brick building up ahead... one of my relatives owns that, and it is a motel, and a restraunt.  They also run a church out of it too."

there is a pause for about 5 seconds, everyone who heard was probably thinking (I know I was) 'ok... who really cares'  then out of the blue, one of are [awesome] TAC Officers gets on the air.

"Rooooger that sir..." 

The Encampment commander (The driver.  I, the half-asleep Alpha Flight Sgt., was shotgun) and I just busted up laughing.   You had to be there.





Earlier that trip, the CAP van right in front of us had one of its back double-doors cracked open, so I hopped out, SLAMMED it shut, and was back in the van before the ajar van knew what happened.  the look on the passengers' face's was priceless.

Couple of tidbits:

At one of our wing encampments, my usual partner in CAP crime came up with the following:

CC: Deputy Commander, this is Encampment Commander, over.

DC: This is deputy, over.

CC: What is your location over?

DC: I'm a little busy right now, over.

CC: I need to see you. What is your location, over?

DC: Building 432, Latrine, (and with sounds of straining in his voice)second stall on the left, over.

Forgot I said a "couple" of tidbits:

AC: Redfox **, this is CAPflight 1132, over.

GT: CAPflight 1132, this is Redfox **, over.

AC: Roger, Redfox **, how do you copy, over.

GT: I generally use a Xerox machine, over.

AC: Um, ...uh...roger, Redfox **. CAPflight1132, out.

Hm..penetrating trauma w/ heavy bleeding. That almost, by protocol, sounds like a helicopter shoulda been sent for transport to a tertiary care facility.  >:D >:D
