HF notes....

(1/1)

RRKen:
While listening to the HF feed, I have noted some flight call signs that are unfamiliar to me.  One such in particular is "REACH"(eg. REACH 719).  I have searched and cannot find any Airline that matches that call.  Most other call signs I have been able to "translate".  

 Any hints?

As an aside, this feed has far better reception than any other HF reciever on-line.   Quite impressive.

Thanks.  I have a lot of experience in radio, both HF abd UHF/UHF/microwave, so I know how to get the most out of a receiving location.  I happen to live in a generally quiet and good location.

REACH is a military flight.

In the left frame of this page, there is a link for "FAA Designators and Callsigns."  You can look up information via callsign, three letter identifier, and by company name.  This has basically every callsign and airline/aircraft company in the world.
