Just wandering how it is going trying to add some frequencies to the KMDT feeds?

I've got three scanners to hook-up as soon as I get the mount points for them from Dave. The kmdt_twr mount exists but is currently running a test, but I'll move that over to tower tomorrow all being well.

Ok, we should now have kmdt_twr, zny_har and zny_mdt operating. I had a bit of an issue with the second sound card, and it's still running at too high a sample rate and eating processing power, but it's working. I'll let Dave know and get them announced.

Great, I am listening to ZNY 132.2 right now.  The only thing I have noticed is that after each transmission there is a couple seconds of static.  Not sure what could be causing that, but otherwise a great feed.

The squelch was too far open. I've fixed that. You might notice it's up and down a little at the moment as I'm rearranging some wires...

I've got KLNS_TWR up now. Still not sure why KMDT_TWR is so poor -- I can pickup their ATIS fine, and even their ground frequency, but tower is crappy. I've got my aviation handheld hooked up to a spare channel of the spliiter, so I'll have a look at those other freqs. I'm running out of capacit, though -- eight channels is my budget limit!!!

> 128.000, but just checking now (at 2000 EST) they are using 133.175.

They are currently using both these freqs as seperate sectors. I've got them combined into a feed called zny_joliet. I've only got one more scanner spot open now, and then I'll be up to the limit of my system at eight feeds...

They have been using 128.000 in place of 133.475 for Sector 10 (HAR high) recently. Maybe a temporary sub ? Can you hear the controller on 128.000 ? Is there a link (url) to that  zny_joliet feed you mentioned ? I also note ZNY has been using 133.500 recently in place of 132.150 for Sector 86 (Atlantic high). Musical frequencies. DJ

They still seem to have 133.47 for Harrisburg High, or at least they have some thing on there! And yes, I can hear the controller for both Joliet freqs. The link to the feed is... http://audio.liveatc.net:8012/zny_joliet.m3u

I see this morning they are back to normal using 133.475 for HAR high again, 128.000 doesn't appear to be in use.

Thanks for the link. Very good controller reception on 133.175. Do you have any other links to feeds that aren't posted on the main site yet ? DJ

The only other one is...

If you have any more radios left there is also the ZNY Hyper sector using the joliet frequency of 132.500. The Hyper sector generally only opens up when you get a northeast arrival push into IAD, otherwise it's combined into the Middletown sector on 132.200. It's really nice having one radio dedicated to one frequency/sector. Great job ! DJ

The Joliet feed is scanning zny hyper, zny lrp, and the two alternative zny freqs of 128.00 and 133.175. I've got one radio spare that I'd intended to use for cxy tower, but I might see how zny plays out first.

Just heard them failing to get through to an airplane on 128.00 and switching to a backup transmitter. 128.00 controller reception is much better now...

On the Joliet feed you're not getting anything on 132.500 (Hyper sector), are you sure it's in there ?

ZNY keeps changing their frequencies in this area, today (as of 1500 EDT) they are using 133.175 for the HAR high sector (normally 133.475, a few days ago they were using 128.000), and they have 128.000 back in LRP low sector (yesterday it was 133.175), and they are using 132.500 in MDT low (normally 132.500 is only used for Hyper and 132.200 is MDT low). Who's on first ? DJ

Thanks, that frequency combination on the joliet feed works real nice, sounds great.
