KJFK - Out of town

Will be out of town until tuesday, there have been some problems with my router so it might go down. I hope not, but just giving everyone a heads up.

Hi,
   Welcome back. Have you been informed of the "static like" reception that the JFK tower link is having.
    I live in Sacramento and have been hearing it for awhile, as have other posters on this site.
     I will say this though, you have a great site here, and its interesting listening to all the ATC venues you have.
                   Thanks    Ron

I live near Dallas and am currently listening to JFK tower. I too am hearing static between transmissions.

Lezam,
     The RF static that is being heard on the JFK frequency is definately Morse Code, I am a former amateur radio operator, and although I have long since forgotten my Morse Code, I do remember the Tempo that it useto have, and I'm sure that if someone who is more capable than I am, listens to it, they will be able to confirm what I'm saying, and somehow get the operators callsign which will help in tracking this problem.
     It is probably a frequency that someone is using for CW wrongfully, because the closest frequency to JFK in the Ham Bands is the 2 meter band.
     I hope you can find and correct the source, as it is a nuisance to keep hearing  it, especially on the most popular link.
     Thanks for trying to correct this.

being a former "amateur radio operator" you should know that this is obviously not Morse Code on (KJFK) it's most likely caused by a nearby FM transmitter and from the sound of it a small adjustment of the squelch should take care of it

However on (KLGA) sounds like some sort of computer mode but again definately not Morse Code

Sorry to hear about the loss of your license  :-(

Thank you Glenn for pointing that out, I never thought of it that way, but it surely should be an easy fix.
   Bye the way, I didn't lose my license, I still have it, I'm only disabled and cannot operate like I did, but it would be nice to be able to again.

Alright guys, im going to run it by the management again. Im going to take a while and listen to the feed over the weekend, and check out whats going on.

I spoke with management yesterday, and we discussed the problem in depth. It seems that there is radio interference with the feed, but it isnt easily fixed. Glenn, I am going to check out the squelch and try playing around with it. Maybe that would be a quick fix to the problem.

Regarding the LGA feed, im going to put that on the backburner for now. The main priority is to get rid of the static in the JFK feed, and the solution will hopefully fix the LGA feed as well.

Ron, thanks for pointing it out to me and I am going to try to get it going 100% with no static or annoying sound. Give me a little time to get it in order, hopefully I will be able to get it perfect by sunday.

Elliot,
       Just thought I'd tell you that I am not hearing the problem anymore, it is clear as a bell now.
       Thank you very much for your quick attention and resolution of the problem, I was wondering if you could tell us what was wrong.
       This is an exceptional site for ATC listening, and I am happy to donate to it.
                              Ron

Midnight in Sacramento and I spoke too soon, the noise is back. But at least we know it can be eliminated.

   I responded offline regarding this. I am now at this time 2:00PM California time listening to JFK, and it again is clear as a bell.
   I will check again tonight after midnight to see if it returns. You can contact me anytime for help in tracking this if I can.

It's been down all day, and most of last night as well, I think. Any idea why?

Just curious. (There are so many other feeds after all ;) )

Was a local network issue. I've been configuring and rewiring things around the house for the past couple of days, but I'm done so there shouldnt be any more outages.
