We run these feeds in cooperation with a volunteer who houses the equipment. With the current hardware configuration we can non longer do UHF - there is some VHF bandpass filtering that is needed and that eliminates the ability to do UHF.

Happy to see Selfridge ANGB (KMTC) back on the air.  Question to the feed provider ..... Any plans to add UHF freqs to the offering ? 

Thank you so much for providing the feed. 
Though it’s quite an old thread, I’d like to chime in. It's crucial for everyone, especially those in positions of responsibility like pilots, to prioritize safety and not drink and drive. It's good to hear that Japan Airlines is taking immediate actions to prevent future incidents.
It's certainly concerning to hear about incidents like this, but it's good to see that measures are being taken to prevent future occurrences. Safety should always be the top priority, especially in the aviation industry. Let's hope that this serves as a reminder to all pilots to take their responsibilities seriously.
Aviation Audio Clips / Casper Wyoming Skylane Crash

(from Aviation Accidents/This Day in History)

Found his approach audio into Casper Airspace, a few other aircraft in the space as well.
Very haunting conditions report from one of them when asked by ATC, the quite a few mic clicks, then nothing.

March 21, 2023 - A Cessna 182S Skylane, registered to Hawkeye Helicopter LLC of Lyndon, Kansas, N314FR, was destroyed when it was involved in an accident near Casper, Wyoming.
 The commercial-rated pilot sustained fatal injured. The flight departed an unknown airport, and was headed to an unknown destination.
A review of the ADS-B data shows that the track began at 7900 feet at about 14:13 local. The airplane maintained a relatively normal flightpath. At 14:21, the airplane disappeared from the flight-tracking website (Figure 1). At 15:24, the airplane appeared again on the tracking site. The airplane was at 7500 feet, climbing to 7800 feet, before it began a descent to 6600 feet. At 15:52, the airplane began a right turn over the small town of Evansville, Wyoming (Figure 2). The airplane was now on a southernly heading and flew over the Casper Mountain. After that, the airplane began a descent over a 10 minute period (Figure 3), but began a climb after it approached some wooded covered hillsides. It appears the airplane was unable to outclimb the terrain and crashed into a very remote wooded hillside near Alcova Reservoir, Wyoming. (Figure 4)
The pilot held a commercial rating for airplane single-engine land and multi-engine land. He also held an instrument rating. He was also a mechanic. His FAA third-class medical certificate was issued August 1, 2022.
The registered operator performs aerial patrol and inspection work, specializing in pipeline and powerline services for the energy industry.

The Florida Highway Patrol reported that a small-engine Piper Aircraft veered off the runway while landing at St. Augustine Airport Sunday afternoon.

According to FHP, the incident took place at approximately 12:00 p.m., when the aircraft was attempting to land on the paved airstrip at the St. Augustine Airport when it suddenly veered off into the grass area.

The aircraft’s propeller then reportedly struck a ditch, causing the aircraft to come to rest off of the runway.

The pilot, an 82-year-old man, and his 76-year-old passenger both sustained minor injuries in the crash. Emergency medical services arrived promptly on the scene and transported the pair to Flagler Hospital for treatment.The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) have been notified of the incident and will conduct a thorough investigation to determine the cause of the crash. It is not yet known what may have caused the aircraft to veer off the runway.
On March 23, 2023 AWI3771 (United Express - Air Wisconsin) was on short final to runway 10 at KSAV when the tower controller instructed them to go around.  Apparently another aircraft could not clear the runway in time.  AWI3771 landed safely a few minutes later on runway 19.
