Nice setup ! It's great having those Miami Center feeds back !

Just wondering what frequencies you have up on the low altitude feed ? Just listening now it sounds like 133.55, 132.40, and maybe 124.70 or 132.20 ?

thanks everybody! Sorry about the power line noise during the day...praying for rain :lol:  The Bimini feed during the day is 126.325, at night it gets combined with 125.70, 135.60,
and 134.20 (the entire Caribbean-Area 4 section) At that time i'll scan them all. At the moment 135.60 is being transmitted from the Miami RCAG, probably by accident. I heard this happen a few weeks ago, at that time they were transmitting from Miami and Bimini, a pilot finally complained of a squeal and then they shut off the Miami transmitter.

The Key West feed during the day is 124.70, 124.75, 128.175, 132.20, 132.40 and 133.50
Later at night the entire West Side Coastal-Area 1 combines. At that time i'll also scan 126.575, 128.225, 132.35, 133.90 and 134.75   I think that's all of them :-D

The Mia FSS has the listed flight service frequencies plus about 40 misc things.

P.S. I'm working on another feed :lol:

Great feed and setup. This is my favorite feed at home and driving. Nice to look up here is FLL/PBI and see these flights going/coming from the Caribbean. The new Havana feed with this extends coverage to almost over Jamaica.

Thanks for that new Havana feed ! Sounds very good.

Attached is a map I put together showing the Havana high altitude sectors and adjacent airspace. There is a range ring at 200nm (~ FL270) and 250nm (~ FL410) showing theoretical reception range (in nautical miles) from the Ft. Lauderdale area.
