Names Terry a "1935 Model"from Plymouth UK.Not been to well lately so confined to indoors for a while, not had much of an education but can get by with a computer hi. Being a Radio Ham[ only intermediate} i can listen to HF on my Icom 718 Transceiver , but it is very hit and miss , so searching around i found Live ATC  yesterday, on the internet and found it very interesting.
   My wife is very concerned about me listen to this , so just checking to find out the situation, any help much appreciated
         Thank you for allowing me on this site   Kindest Regards   Terry  [MINIMOA}

Welcome to LiveATC. It's a volunteer supported site covering HF, VHF, UHF aviation bands. Volunteers around the
world, though mostly in North American, provide the feeds from their locations covering airports and enroute
aviation communications. Legal here in the USA where the site is based. Understand you folks across the pond
can't listen in to your local aviation comms. So, you will note, I believe, that there are no feeds from England.
Enjoy listening in and hope you get to feeling better.

Welcome Terry, and please enjoy listening to whatever you find interesting.  One place to start might be the "Top 50 List" on the left sidebar.

I would just add that it may be difficult to understand what is being said.  New pilots sometimes take a while to get accustomed to how quickly people speak in the busier airspaces, but it will come with experience.
