Help with Basics of Finding ATC feeds?
« on: January 16, 2020, 12:33:42 PM »
Hi --

Apologies for such a basic question, but I'm wondering if anyone has a beginner's guide to finding and listening to ATC feeds. I work as a researcher and oftentimes I'm asked to find ATC audio for flights where something dramatic has happened -- Delta 89 dumping fuel over LA, for example, or planes making emergency landings for other reasons.

There are so many LAX feeds I don't know where to start, I don't quite understand how or when a plane would change frequencies, and so on.

Wondering if anyone has ever come up with a basic "this is how this works" kind of guide, or a guide for finding specific audio you're looking for. I would love to see it, if so.

Would appreciate any and all help anyone might be willing to provide!

Thanks very much,
Jackson
