Hi Shane,
    If you go to set up your other three scanners, you might want to keep in mind that I am soon going to have another site setup near CYHZ (I have the feed from there now which has the ATC frequencies on a scanning scanner, as well as the CYAW feed). I am planning to have eight additional feeds from there. They will all be scanner-based to keep reception levels & signal/noise ratios up when picking up distant aircraft.

The ones I am putting up that you might want to consider are:

(1) 119.200 with a couple of minor support frequencies 118.700 (for VFR) and 128.550 (seldom used).
(2) 135.300 Moncton PAL low (Cape Breton Sector) -> seems to be cross-coupled across all Moncton low-level sectors quite frequently , especially at night.
(3) 133.950 Moncton Pal high. I'll throw the cross-coupled frequencies on there too (125.25, 133.70, 133.30, 132.75) for times that they are de-coupled.

This second site is less than 600m from the remote transmitter site for CYHZ so reception is a piece of cake. I'm going to put an SDR on ATIS as well as it is broadcast from that same site.

If you want to private message me go ahead....I want to discuss PiAware / FlightFeeder with you....

cheers!

My suggestion was to split the Yarmouth/YQI feeds into 3 areas.

Radio 1) High Altitude (FL290 and above) - 135.200, 128.375, 132.975 (controller reception on all 3)
 
Radio 2) Low Altitude IFR (FL280 and below) - 123.900, 119.200, 128.550 (should have controller reception on 123.900, but currently not heard for some reason ?)

Radio 3) Local/VFR/Other - 123.000, 123.550, 118.700, 123.450, 126.700, 129.900, 121.500

Thanks blacktop ! It will be nice having those frequencies split off onto separate radios. Looking forward to hearing them (especially the Center frequencies).

Hey JetScan...no problem,
      Once I have the CYHZ / Moncton Pals (High/Low) up on their own feeds, I'm hoping to move a bit further afield. The two probables are 14 Wing Greenwood, and the high level feeds out of the Sydney area. I think i have enough scanners laying around to do each frequency from Sydney on their own feed as well (Both high level, & local stuff from McCurdy). I'll have to give it some thought. Definitely would like to have 119.42 (Gander Eastbound Oceanic Clearance Delivery) on its own feed. If I knew a little better just how things work among the sectors, maybe there is a more logical configuration to improve listening to the end user.  I just have to find someone to host. I have no relations in the area, so I will have to look towards aero enthusiasts that might host.

I agree with your thoughts on Yarmouth. I may also have some good sites down that way not far from Wellington....but I'll have to check. However, if Shane gets everything working okay, then that may not be needed....

Hi Guys I  could only break down into two different feeds I have just set it up and it should be  going today depends on Dave, reason for just two was the sound card for the feeder so I broke it as follows:
Radio 1) High Altitude (FL290 and above) - 135.200, 128.375, 132.975 (controller reception on all 3)

Radio 2) Low Altitude IFR (FL280 and below) - 123.900, 119.200, 128.550
local/VFR/Other - 123.000, 123.550, 118.700, 123.450, 126.700, 129.900, 121.500

We will see how that works.
Any more ideas with the two scanner setup let me know.
Now to get my flightaware feed fixed lol anyone  deal with there support seems like lack of support with my experience so far
Would love to chat blacktop I will pm you

Now i have 2 realistic  pro 2021 scanners here doing nothing.

have you tried the flightaware forum? http://discussions.flightaware.com/c/flightaware/ads-b-flight-tracking

If you don't want to create an account just write me here i think i have read and can help you with most issues described in the other forum.

Easiest suggestion is always to just get the current image and follow the regular install instructions.
Fixing existing installs normally is more complicated but just go ahead and write down your problem ;)

new equipment installed and now back online feb 17, 2016

It sounds much better. Thanks for the update !

Hi Shane, Is there any chance the AR20 refuelling track can be added to the freq list for YQI 341.75. This is a hot freq for alot of the Mil guys

Regards Ian

Ian,
I've got an AR20 Feed on Zello right now. Look for channel: AR20Test    PM me for the password.  Might look to put it on LiveATC at some point. BCT15x on a DPD Air Omni Antenna not optimally located, but the setup is working pretty decent.

    Ian has a great idea there. Any chance that you put up a separate feed with just the AR20 track frequencies with one of your 2021's?

Thanks for doing that ! Nice to have the high and low sectors split. Controller reception sounds good on the high sectors, I see you still can't hear the low sector controller though (when I checked anyway). If anyone wants to listen to this low sector it seems 123.90 is almost always cross-coupled with the YQM Moncton Center Low feed frequencies (132.20/132.50). (Excellent reception over there).

Good morning and Happy New Year to all

I don't know if it is me but I have been getting a lot of interference on the CYQI/CZQM CTAF/FIC/Center - Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada right hand side feed     some kind of beeping that seems to come and go.    Just for the record I have been listening to it for a couple of days including between 10:00am to 11:50am EST on 1/1/2019

thanks for anyone's help and or advice in advance

Ian Snow

Good Afternoon

    I just want to give a heads up that the CYQI/CZQM CTAF/FIC/Center feed seems to be stuck on a freq with a beeping type of interferance on it

I have only listened the last 2 days, so i don't know how long it has been going on


thanks in advance for everyone's help

Hi thanks its been going on since the hurricane I fixed the ant and connection and now have this I emailed dave for support last week and he has not gotten back to me yet.
I am trying to figure out if I need a new ant or if it is the soldering of the connection causing the noise
