NYC feeds down, cause unknown
« on: December 13, 2011, 09:35:35 AM »
Got a notification last night that the NYC Class B and CTAF feeds are down. The feeds are at a remote location, and it's not an ISP issue but the machine itself is down. Not sure why but will try to diagnose this morning or later in the week. I'm aware of it and will have them running again soon.


Feed Provider Of:
NYC Helicopter Class B/Ops
KEWR Tower (TCA/Helicopters)
NYC Helicopter CTAF
KLGA NY Approach (HAARP/Final/Dep)
KTEB Del/Gnd/Tower
NYC MilAir/MISC

Back up. An employee at the business the machine is at unplugged its Ethernet connection from the patch panel inadvertently. The machine is still going strong, 299 days since a reboot (install day).

Just a question: Are there any plans to restore LGA tower feed? (The main one 118.7).  It has got to be one of the more interesting tower operations in North America.

Yes, but can't provide an ETA.

NYC feeds were down for the past 15 days but are now back up. The day I left town for a 2 week vacation, an employee at the business the feeds are hosted at unplugged the computer's Ethernet connection then reconnected it to the wrong port on the switch. Things are now back up and stable. No computer crash, just a human error issue.

Also, this Thursday will mark one year of uptime of the feeding computer, without reboots. Not bad for an old G4 Mac Mini.

Sorry for the outage and happy listening!
