Teak Publishing Releases The Milcom Files: The Spectrum Monitor Volume 3 (2020)

  Recent world events continue to draw many radio listeners into their radio shacks to tune in on the action using their shortwave radios. software-defined radios, and programmable VHF/UHF scanners. In many cases monitoring the HF/VHF/UHF radio spectrum offers the radio hobbyist an opportunity to hear what is really going on behind the scenes without the filters imposed by news media outlets.

 Most radio listeners quickly learn that when the world has a crisis, disaster or tensions rise between countries, the military will usually be the first organization called upon to intervene. It pays to monitor military frequencies when international events heat up. Monitoring the military can offer some of the most productive and rewarding listening you will ever experience using your radio. The good news is you do not have to live close to a military installation to hear these communications. But you do need to learn where and when to tune in military communications.

 Mention the words "Monitor the Military" and most radio hobbyists will immediately think of military air shows, military aircraft flybys or a whole host of other activities that can be heard via radio frequencies. There is a big radio frequency spectrum out there to monitor if you know where to listen, you can eavesdrop on some of the most fascinating radio communications you will hear on a scanner or shortwave radio.

 Larry Van Horn N5FPW, has been a radio hobbyist for more than 56 years listening to world events and monitoring military radio communications. He has spent over 39 years documenting activity in the military radio spectrum in his monthly Satellite, Utility World, and Milcom (Military Communications) columns in the pages of Monitoring Times, Satellite Times, and now The Spectrum Monitor magazines. During this time, he has published a treasure trove of military communication monitoring information.

 In 2017 Larry joined the Spectrum Monitor writing staff as he continues to chronicle military monitoring in his new monthly TSM Milcom column. Now for the first time, he is publishing all his monthly TSM Milcom columns (2017-2020) at Amazon in the Kindle eBook format.
