Made a slight modification to the primary antenna today, much better ground reception.  Next week I will be moving the antenna from my floor to my attic, so there should be much better ground and air audio next week.  You may or may not be able to hear Houston Dep/App on 119.7

Lost power today due to utility work in the area.  I will be relocating the main antenna to my attic this weekend and I will verify the power restore settings for the server box, so hopefully outages will be less lengthy.

Completed relocating the antenna to my attic. Much better reception. Now you can hear the planes on the ground very clearly and I am barely picking up Houston Approach on 119.7 and 123.8

The server is currently down.  It should be back up later today, as soon as I can get out to it

Hooks issued a NOTAM moving the ATIS from 124.95 to 128.375.  looks like they were using 122.95 during the switch

KDWH sounds to be bit unstable and audio is quite a distorted, maybe I can help somehow as I am living just next from airport?

Thanks for letting me know! I adjusted the volume on the scanner.   Local traffic sounds great but the Houston Approach is a little distorted (the antenna is 20 mi away on the horizon so I don't expect great ground reception).  Would y'all prefer if i remove the approach frequencies from the scanner and only scan local traffic?

The feed is down and has been for several days. Anyone know when it'll be back up and running? Need any help?
