EAM.WATCH is a website for tracking and logging HF Radio communication broadcasted by the USAF.
It began as a personal hobby of recording and logging transmissions, but when I realized there was an entire community of people that were doing the same thing I decided to build a public website log that could be shared with the entire community.
While its not always up-to-date and definitely doesn't contain every broadcast, its an interesting look into the frequency of USAF broadcasts that can be correlated to real-world events.
