Joint Warrior

I'm getting activity on 350.550, I've tried Googling the frequency but no joy. I'm hearing helicopters with call signs 'Eagle' and the Navy with a 'Warship Yankee'. I don't often listen to military, but the exercise is just off the coast from me.
200 miles in 2 days for my 3 children.

350.55 is a Royal Navy FOST frequency (Flag Officer Sea Training).
I heard it used during JW131.

"Warship ####" callsigns used on VHF Marine are generally the real name of the ship, because it is a public channel and anyone nearby could see the name of the ship thru a binocular anyway.
e.g. "Warship Argyll"

But on a NATO (230-399 Mhz) channel they would be more likely to use a tactical callsign such as "1 Yankee Zulu" or "Yankee 1 Zulu". In this case the callsign will be different today.
I reserve the right to ignore people who have made no attempt to the read the manual, and expect others to do it for them.

Not a FOST frequency as such but used during FOST as well.
It's a Naval TAD with a command and reporting function.

The frequencies in use for the day are passed on HF during the daily pre-brief. HF freqs are passed using their designator (the exception being the HF SoO which is always given in the clear along with the marine VHF and UHF SoO frequencies). The UHF C&R net command frequencies are passed in the clear with the operational frequencies passed, by designator, on those as required.

Happy hunting

If you get a moment - could you make up an example of the format of the HF messages - I'd be interested in the kind of structure of the messages - I hadn't realised they used HF for this purpose, where abouts are the HF comms, frequency wise?
