ZTL ARTCC
« on: February 23, 2018, 12:01:16 PM »
Since I'm starting some new projects for my Youtube channel, I'm also doing up to date sector charts for both ARTCCs and Tracons of the entire United States airspace.

I'm saving Photoshop files so in case someone spots mistakes, I'd appreciate feedback so that I can easily fix it and have sector maps as updated as possible.
From my point of view, the importance of this is frequencies and Sector codes. I don't include names for all of them but I could if you'd like.

NOTE: Neighbour frequencies are the equivalent of low, high or super high. Therefore you won't see a super high neighbour in the low chart. In this case of ZTL, I haven't been able to find a good document from Memphis ZME so I only showed frequencies I knew of or heard.

In general:
Low Sectors - Below FL240
High Sectors - Above FL240 to UNL (up to FL340 if Super High is available and operative)
Super High Sectors - FL350 to UNL


With the help of LiveATC, we're starting a project to show how different sectors and airspaces work together, coordinate and keep skies safe.

On the ZTL low chart the ZTL10 frequency 124.450 has been changed to 134.200.

On the ZTL high chart the ZTL42 and ZTL43 sector boundaries have been redesigned so that the area is now split east/west (ZTL42 132.425 = east, ZTL43 120.275 = west), both FL240 to FL340. Confirmed from monitoring although I have not obtained a current chart yet that shows the change.

Attached below is what I have for ZTL high, shows the adjacent ZME sectors and frequencies.

What flight tracking program is that you are are using ?

Thanks to LiveATC for all the new Center feeds online recently, especially these SDR setups monitoring single frequencies, very helpful !

Hi Jetscan,

Hi messaged you a while ago. I'd appreciate all those charts you have and have shared to do these colored sector charts I'm working on. Also, thanks for that ZTL with the Memphis freqs. I will edit the ZTL files with your corrections and will also include ZME sectors.

What flight tracking program is that you are are using ?

It is not a flight tracker. That is a program we're developing for VASAviation Youtube channel which shows real traffic on real ATC maps and diagrams. Another example attached with STARS datablock format for Tracons. We're still working on it, fixing bugs and improving the style to make it look as real as possible. We're in the good way, apparently. I will do videos for different sectors and Tracons so that we can see how they work and what real ATCs see.

Currently working on the whole Potomac with some videos from IAD, DCA and BWI that will come soon on Youtube.

Regards,
Victor

Somewhere around ZTL10 (or maybe ZTL19) there is a low frequency of 134.2. KATL Tower hands plans off to the first departure controller (often 125.7 or 125.65) whose airspace is generally from 3,000 to 14,000 MSL. For normal SID departures, the four most common frequencies for commercial aircraft at busy times a day are 133.1 (to the north), 134.95 (to the west), 134.5 (to the south), and 134.2 (to the east). 134.2 seems to be missing from your map. I'm not saying that 123.95 or 124.45 are incorrect (since I can't pick them up), but I can pick up 134.2 from my location and like 133.1, 134.95, and 134.5, I *think* 134.2 generally controls the airspace from 14,000 to FL230 or so.

On that VAS low chart there is a typo and  they have incorrectly labeled ZTL16 as ZTL10 (ZTL10 is a high sector), and the frequency 124.45 has been replaced by 134.20.

Are you saying you can't hear anything on the ZTL19 frequency 123.950 ? Should be a busy frequency with ATL arrivals on the JJEDI STAR and you should be able to hear traffic on it if you are hearing stuff on all those other frequencies ? Maybe they have changed that frequency too ?
