Coronet Ops

Coronet: The first word designating an Air Combat Command fighter or bomber deployment mission (e.g. Coronet Sentry, Coronet Havoc).

The frequencies below are used during air refueling operations while ferrying aircraft overseas. Here in Southern California, Coronet air refueling operations are usually conducted within or near the Isabella MOA. If these frequencies are not programmed into your radio you can still stumble upon them by listening for the tanker callsigns on air traffic control frequencies. Some of the callsigns used include Blue, Cafe, Clean, Gold, Huron and Tabor. The callsign suffix of the tankers correspond to which channel they will be using. For example, if the callsign Cafe 11 is used, it means they will be using one of the two Alpha channels. If they use the callsign Cafe 91 it means they will be using one of the two Foxtrot channels.
