JFK Area Feed Improvement
« on: February 28, 2023, 05:13:49 PM »
Just letting you all know that reception on the four JFK area feeds has been greatly improved thanks to raising the antenna and cleaning up the cable connectors.  What a difference a little maintenance makes lol!  Enjoy...

The JFK area feeds will have intermittent outages today as some electrical work is done.  Shouldn't take too long...

For those who are interested, a fifth JFK Area feed (ZNY Misc (NE PA) just went live.  This helps take the load off of the other four JFK Area feeds and it includes a few ZNY frequencies that were not available on LiveATC.  Also did some housecleaning on the four original JFK Area feeds by removing some frequencies that are now covered elsewhere and also removing a few long distance frequencies.  The new arrangement looks like this:

ZBW/ZNY/ZDC (JFK Area) #1
ZBW Sector 20 (Kingston High) 125.575
ZNY Sector 56 (Kennedy High) 125.325
ZNY Sector 42 (East Texas High) 127.175
ZNY 128.675 (backup)
ZNY 134.375 (backup)
ZDC Sector 19 (Woodstown High) 125.450

ZBW/ZNY/ZDC (JFK Area) #2
ZNY Sector 67 (Dixie Low) 118.975
ZDC Sector 54 (Snow Hill High) 121.375
ZDC Sector 34 (Yorktown High) 120.975
ZDC Sector 59 (Sea Isle High) 133.125

ZBW/ZNY/ZDC (JFK Area) #3
ZNY Sector 66 (Manta Low) 128.300
ZNY Sector 86 (Oceanic High) 133.500
ZDC Sector 51 (Casino Low) 127.700
Emergency/Guard 121.500

ZBW/ZNY/ZDC (JFK Area) #4
ZNY Sector 55 (Yardley Low) 134.600
ZNY Sector 09 (Westminster High) 134.325
ZDC Sector 58 (Coyle High) 121.025

ZNY Misc (NE PA)
ZNY Sector 34 (Elk Mountain High) 132.175
ZNY Sector 49 (Stoneyfork High) 121.325
ZNY Sector 35 (Huguenot Low) 132.600
ZNY Sector 34 (Elk Mountain High backup) 128.500

Many thanks to Dave for his help with this!  Enjoy listening  :-)

Thanks, good to know.  At some point I plan on raising the antenna even higher on the house.  Eventually...
