Every squadron has their own frequencies, they're not hard to find online although some of the lists have inaccuracies. The Fighter Control Forum has a reasonably accurate list, as do many of the online airfield viewing guides (e.g. Thunder and Lightnings). I believe there's a list on this forum as well. There are also multiple frequencies for air-to-air coordination between control aircraft (AWACS, Sentinel, Shadow) and tactical aircraft. Listening in on exercises between these aircraft can be interesting. They're generally given on the lists as AWACS frequencies. Air-to-air refuelling operations also have their own designated frequencies for the tanker and receiving aircraft to communicate, if you're close enough to one of those areas to receive the transmissions.


Civil airliners very occasionally use 123.450MHz for inter-plane communications (I'm not sure they're supposed to). I have heard a couple of Lufthansa pilots exchange a birthday greeting and short conversation on this frequency as they passed in opposing directions off the east coast.


Is there a particular squadron you're interested in listening to?

I don't hear much air-to-air on civil frequencies, searching with Google for "123.450 MHz" will get you to some discussions on the light aircraft forums that might give you some frequencies to try.

Squadron air-to-air frequencies are reasonably active during office hours (RAF and USAAF), air-to-air refuelling is regularly active if you're close enough and have a good enough antenna set-up, AWACS coordination frequencies if you're close to exercise areas.

But what frequencies you should be listening to for this depend where you are - which airfields are closest, nearby exercise areas, transit routes, etc.
