No Drone Zone
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has prohibited flying Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS or "drones") over U.S. Department of Defense installations, including Naval Air Station Oceana and NAS Oceana Dam Neck Annex in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and Naval Auxiliary Landing Field (NALF) Fentress in Chesapeake, Virginia. These naval installations, and others in Hampton Roads, are designated "National Defense Airspace" in Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) 7/7282 issued on April 7, 2017. UAS operators who violate this NOTAM may be criminally charged in U.S. District Court under 49 U.S. Code 46307 and punished by fine and/or imprisonment. Unauthorized drone operations prohibited within 5 miles of airports.

Defense Service Network (DSN) Dialing Instructions
The DSN is the provider of long-distance communications service for the Department of Defense (DoD). Every installation has a special DSN number and the numbers vary by world-wide location. In order to place a call using DSN, the caller must be using a military phone on an installation. Cell phones cannot dial DSN numbers. When dialing a DSN number from a United States installation to another United States installation, it is unnecessary to dial the DSN 312 area code. When dialing a DSN number to/from overseas locations, the DSN area code must be included.
