Geneva frequencies missing

<< < (2/3) > >>

thowe:
I am not in the LSGG region but feeder at another airport in Switzerland. If I can support someone in setting up a LiveATC feed, I will be happy to do so. I have quite a lot of experience by now.

Requirements:
- Acceptable reception from ATC and aircraft (ideally also on the ground).
- Raspberry Pi 3 or 4
- Internet connection (cable or wifi)
- SDR dongle(s) (e.g. with a SDRPlay RSP1A you can cover several frequencies at the same time in a range of 7 MHz)

Thanks, Tom! Hopefully a volunteer near Geneva will show up soon.

I am currently in contact with someone from the Geneva region who already has an affinity for the topic via ADS-B streaming. Maybe he can get on board with the idea of streaming LiveATC for LSGG. We have a meeting tomorrow.

However, we now have to clarify together his technical possibilities, the suitability of his location, etc. Maybe we start deliberately very small (scanning over several frequencies with an RTL stick) and see from there.

Are there any empirical values, which frequencies were particularly interesting for the airport and which were rather not?

Great! The key issue will be whether he can mount a small VHF antenna outside and also how far he is from the airport and the terrain between his location and the airport. For almost complete frequency coverage it would take 3 SDRs. For a scanning situation one SDR could be used to scan the primary frequencies.

Geneva Clearance: 121.680
Geneva Ground: 121.680 (secondary 119.700)
Geneva Tower: 118.700, 119.905 (secondary 119.700)
Geneva Approach: 130.555
Geneva Final Approach: 120.305
Geneva Transit Approach: 136.450
Geneva Arrival: 136.255
Geneva Departure: 119.530, 131.330

Hope this helps.

Thanks Dave. That's a lot of frequencies.... Especially approach frequencies they seem to love.... ;-)

I'll check the points you raised tomorrow in exchange with the colleague.
