Hi

Any idea when the KBGR feed will be back up it has been intermittent for the last couple of days but now its down permanently now  :-( :-(

It's only been down for 18 hours. There appears to be a network or hardware issue at the site. We track all outages and when they've been down for 24 hours we start working on restoration. It can take a while in "unmanned" sites like BGR is.

Speaking of the Bangor feed, just wondering if maybe Boston Center 120.250 could be added ? This seems to be the frequency used most often for BGR arrivals and departures.

dave:
120.25 is covered on the KHUL feed. 124.25 is the only ZBW transmitter that can (sometimes) be heard from BGR. We'll probably remove 128.05 (covered at KHUL) from the BGR Approach/Departure feed since it is redundant and not useful. We recently installed a special filter at KHUL which has eliminated the AWOS interference we had previously for a long time.

The ZBW frequency used for flights into and out of BGR varies between 124.75 and 124.25...sometimes 128.05.

In that part of Boston Center (Area D) there has been a lot of sector combining due to COVID-19. This is due to much lower traffic levels as well as staggered working days for controllers to avoid COVID-19 taking the whole ARTCC down to ATC Zero. This affects communication monitoring when you are trying to focus on a particular area.

Thanks for the update John
