Hi, just laying in bed off nights, south of Norwich, randomly scanning.... Came across activity on 270.1500. Two call signs, 36 and 37. Mention of 'Black Dog'. 36 then went on to describe a black business jet with white markings, activity in cabin difficult to see because of sun glare. Interesting stuff. Is this a known frequency for RAF intercept flights?

Which could explain why they were interested. If it was showing up on Radar, but not sending out any identifiers & / or not responding to radio calls, then the RAF would pay it attention.

If you ever get to Norfolk, take a look at Neatishead, which is a few miles from Norwich & close to Wroxham in the Broads. It is a former Cold War Radar bunker.
RAF Neatishead was in use until a few years ago & they take you from WW2 through to modern day & explain how things work. It has a fully functioning cold War operations room & part of the guided tour includes a section on responding to aircraft incursions into our airspace.

I was really hoping to visit Neatishead as staying near Wroxham the first weekend in June but it's only open the second Saturday of the month at weekends according to the website.
