NATO Communications Monitoring Guide and LIVE COVERAGE

All of you knew it would be just a matter of time until NATO communications got covered here! A thread started at RadioReference on this very topic, and the very kind N9INO posted notes from CARMA at that very thread. Now is the best time to also mention that you want to watch this site and THIS POST for LIVE NATO COMMUNICATIONS LOGGING! The live log starts at the bottom of this post.

Here is that screen shot:
[Image: FireShot+Screen+Capture+%23635+-+%27Up-C...ations.jpg]



The thread also has information that the USCG Cutter Hollyhock was observed patrolling off of Monroe Harbor yesterday morning. CG-HOLLYHOCK - MMSI:369932000http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/shi...mmsi=369932000 (posted by MtnBiker2005 at RadioReference) An extra note says that USCG might have turned off the transponder on Hollyhock.

Here is the NATO Security Transportation Plan PDF File

Under fair use, and giving all credit to CARMA and RadioReference for their work on this, here is the most useful information in print just so no one has to rely on copying stuff from the screen shot above.

Searching-Unlike broadcast communications, two-way transmissions tend to be rather short. That means that if you search too big a frequency range, your chances of capturing a signal are quite poor. Experienced scannists recommend searching no more than 1 MHz at a time. While this can be time-consuming, your odds of finding that previously-unknown frequency go way up. So search, search, search!

Search the military bands: 137-144 & 148-150.8 MHz. DoD radios have been loaned to local agencies for events such as this in the past. They've even set up local repeaters.

Search 30-88 MHz. National Guard reported to be providing some motorcade security. "...we're getting 500 State Troopers and 600 National Guardsmen along with assorted hardware to combat a worst-case scenario."

Search 403-430 MHz. It's the fed UHF band. Also search 163-174MHz.

Secret Service. "The security perimeter and overall event plan are under the auspices of the United States Secret Service, with support from a variety of federal, state and local partners, including the Chicago Police Department".
MT Fed Files: Secret Service Frequency List

United States Coast Guard. They'll be enforcing the security zone on US Navigable Waterways.

Marine VHF Channels. Pay particular attention to 156.8 and 157.1MHz.

EXTRA NATO MONITORING TIPS

Now, interestingly enough, if you want REAL TIME live streaming coverage of the NATO event that will not be seen on main stream media, go to Livestream and look up OccupyChi, OccupyChicago, and other occupy / NATO related Chicago live feeds. UStream is also a great source to match what you hear with some live video footage. Again, you will need to do a keyword search.

TWITTER is your friend when it comes to looking for tweets about who is live streaming what, and other tidbits that will always be helpful to radio monitors. (vague hint is left vague for good reason)

Remember that the Chicago Fire Department is now on the P25 SINGLE REPEATED NON-TRUNKED frequencies, so when programming them...do not program as a trunked system. If you don't have a P25 radio, go to RadioReference and listen to the live audio feed for CFD.

Don't place any bets on the digital P25 systems being in the clear unless someone makes a mistake on their rig. HSI (Homeland Security Investigations) are using VHF and might be P25 as well. Monitoring the analog fed freqs might be a possibility for basic, but, telling communications.

Good places to listen to amateur radio traffic where NATO comms might be discussed is the WA9ORC repeater, 146.760 with a PL of 107.2, SARA 146.880 PL 107.2, and NS9RC 442.725 PL 114.8, as well as 442.975 PL 114.8 for any amateur radio emergency communications that might be called up if needed. Amateur Radio simplex frequencies could be active in certain areas of the city, so listen there as well.

Train communications enthusiasts can monitor NATO comms on 161.355 (South Shore Line) 161.340 (Rock Island), 160.920 (Metra Heritage), 160.680 (PBX), 161.205 (Metra Police), and 160.305 (Amtrak) these are the lines most affected by NATO.

Monitoring the Citizens Band frequencies won't be a bad idea, especially CB Channel 18 - 27.185 MHz in AM mode.

NATO Choppers were observed patrolling the Chicago lakefront on 5/16/2012. This brings us to the idea of monitoring not just the freqs mentioned above, but also the Chicago Department of Aviation emergency link on 158.760Mhz.

U.S. Department of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) is using VHF communications that might possibly be P25, or analog or a mix.

Chicago Police frequencies to monitor that have been listed as future use for quite some time now: 460.03750 (Tact), 460.58750(Mounted), 460.51250 (Zone 14), 460.43750 (Zone 15),460.38750 (Zone 16), 460.23750 (Area Wide 1), 460.46250 (Area Wide 2), 460.26250 (Area Wide 3), 460.41250 (Area Wide 4), and 460.21250 (Area Wide 5)

SEE THIS for FCC listing and other information.

Chicago NATO Command and Communications Operations Update[/URL]

Shortwave America knew that the mainstream media was not telling Chicago residents everything, and that they were being good sheeple to appease the whims of the united States Federal Government. Chicagoans have been asking questions for months now about why the security boundaries were drawn the way they were and just how NATO is operating inside their city boundaries under the protection of a whole slew of U.S. federal protection.

Today, Shortwave America set out to get those questions answered. Today, the citizens of the world even beyond the borders of the city of Chicago know everything. Here is a PDF File from Chicago Police News Affairs regarding media access and related issues.

In the NATO Communications Guide and Live Communications Coverage post here at Shortwave America, we know which systems they are using and which other communications systems should be watched all while following NATO live from this publication.

There is now photographic evidence on hand to back up the story that is being told here. These new and yet untold details will help you follow NATO while they convene in Chicago.

Let's start with the locations of the various Command and Communications Posts:

There are multiple sites starting at Navy Pier (Command and Communications site #1). The Hollyhock is stationed there, and her transponder HAS INDEED been turned off. At Navy Pier on the secure side of the Chicago Locks operations area is the U.S. Coast Guard Command and Communications operation.

NATO Command and Communications location number three is the Chicago Museum Campus itself. The greater compliment of operations are based out of the Chicago Field Museum. In the photos below, we see the U.S. Secret Service, various other government agencies and also various consulates operating at the Field Museum.

NATO Command and Communications operation number 4 is at the Burnham Harbor parking lot just across the way from Northerly Island and adjacent to the old McCormick Place. In the photos below, we see various members of the military / Homeland Security guarding the operation, meeting with superiors. We also see the greater cross section of the operation to include their communications and surveillance equipment which includes cellular and microwave frequency operation.

Next up is aviation and ground support operations! Many Chicago residents have witnessed the U.S. Coast Guard aggressively patrolling the skies, along with military and other helicopters. Shortwave America has not only photos, but the exact details on head of state and dignitary transportation operations. Other information includes that which is already publicly available data on the Homeland Security helicopters for all of you aviation enthusiasts.

Before we get to the photos, here is how the dignitary / head of state transportation is working! The military and Homeland Security helicopters meet the honored guests at area airports. Those airports are O'Hare, Chicago Executive, Rockford, and one other airport that is unconfirmed. They then fly the guests to Northerly Island (used to be Meigs Field) at Burnham Harbor, where they are are then transported under heavily armed guard using U.S. Government buses and unmarked vans to the old McCormick Place. They are then taken into and through that building to the new McCormick Place and they are also taken DIRECTLY to the NEW McCormick Place building thus bypassing the old McCormick Place and escorted into an entrance just to the North of the public entrance. (all of this was personally observed). This can also be confirmed by way of the NATO Security Transportation Plan PDF file at the Shortwave America NATO Communications Guide and Live Communications Coverage post.

Information above explains why they drew the street closures the way they did. Get it now? Museum Campus being used for operations, Burnham Harbor being used for operations, Northerly Island being used for operations, Lake Shore Drive and Balbo is staging for Chicago Streets and Sanitation equipment, etc.

The reverse order will be taken when NATO guests leave.

Here are the photos!!

As I started further south to see what else I might find, this reporter crossed through the Chicago Police Gold Star Families Park, the Chicago Fire Department Memorial Park, and the walk was VERY surreal because you could FEEL the tension in the air as joggers and cyclists watchfully went about their daily exercize. No one wanted to make a friendly greeting to other people, even a smile and wave were seen suspiciously. At Lakeshore Drive and 31st street, I met up with a photog from the Chicago Tribune who told me that even the Trib was having trouble identifying the aircraft and determining their operations in regard to NATO. After seeing my photos, the photog called his office and told them my findings. Let's just say it was a very short conversation.

One important observation made through this day long trek was 7 to 8 foot high steel grate fences linked together were seen almost everywhere when it came to major roadsides and overpasses. The fence sections are approximately three to four feet across.

The greater amount of Federal resource and Law Enforcement presence was observed at the various Chicago Federal Buildings. What had previously been just a few vehicles here and there were now street lengths deep and even the local side streets / alleyways near the Federal buildings were packed with Federal Protective Service / Homeland Security Police vehicles.

This reporter did speak to Homeland Security Officers who state that they expect the city to absolutely erupt in never before seen violence over the weekend. The officers spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the press. While speaking with the officers, it was observed that their radio transmissions are in the clear as of this time.

One other thing that is proven by this report: Taxpayers are INDEED on the hook for this NATO fiasco! All of this costs money, and it isn't coming from thin air! Hey, Rahmbo and Obummer....where are the funds coming from? WE WANT TO KNOW!!!!

Thanks to all of you for choosing Shortwave America as your up to date source for NATO 2012!
