The FLIP has some hidden stuff. For instance, it is useful to check the "obstructions" on Google Earth. They can be comm towers, ACMI sites, etc.
There are also "in the blind" frequencies listed. "In the blind" means you signal without establishing two way communications. It is somewhat like
a common traffic advisory frequency used by civil aviation.
If you study the military training routes, you can get the hand off procedures between ranges. Remember, there are few published military air
frequencies. When you find a list on the internet, the frequencies have been found by harvesting what public documents exist, plus on-scene
monitoring. (When on-scene, you get frequencies from bandscanning and from frequencies given out over the air.)
As I mentioned in the thread with the latest Nellis range monitoring, you need to know the baseline, bog standard, run of the mill comms so that you
can tell when something noteworthy is happening.
Case in point are weapons launches. When you hear a pilot say he is going to release a missile, you don't have to report to light in the sky as a
UFO. If you hear the pilot say he is going to land on 14, you don't have to pull a Lazar and claim that the light over the base is a flying
Fortunately, the USAF pdfs are searchable. Otherwise, exploitation would be difficult.
