From the LiveATC archives I put together the ATC comms with the NJ ANG F-16s, callsigns COSMIC 02 and 01, that were scrambled out of Atlantic City/KACY to intercept the NORDO Cessna Citation N611VG. With thanks to Dave and all the feed providers. The recording starts just prior to the F-16s departure and continues until the handoff to Washington on 126.875/285.450. The added beeps indicate a frequency change. The most intense ATC comms I've ever heard. Cudos to the pilots and controllers dealing with this situation.

This was all before the actual intercept that was carried out on Washington 285.450. The UHF 285.450 is paired with VHF 126.875, and at the time this sector was also combined with 132.275. You can hear the controller on 132.275, however, unfortunately the LiveATC archives on this feed have some sort of glitch were parts of the archive are not being saved to various degrees. In this case the 132.275 Bay Sector 1900Z (June 04) archive is only 4:56 minutes long, missing the entire event. I presume there is no way to recover this archive to full length ? This glitch seems to effect all the MRB feeds. Maybe an intermittent power loss or another case of the archives not being able to handle inputs at multiple feed sites ?

Nice work...noted on the KMRB issue. Investigating that. Have had network issues at that site which causes some issues. I believe I have a fix.

Thanks for all the effort, unfortunately I cannot get that site to open. Is there another way to post it?

I've posted the files to the Aviation Audio Clips Forum.
