Ah, so Home Plate can refer to any airport (or carrier?) where the aircraft is currently operating from. And in the context of Area 51 discussions or radio traffic, that means Area 51.

That makes sense, thank you.

I felt it was strange in the video link that he says "started talking to the home plate" instead of something like "started talking to the base" and the documentary doesn't make any other mention of "home plate." Maybe it just came so naturally to this test pilot :)
