I'm trying to work with the ATC professor in getting it set up in his office at the airport.  We have all the equipment, the issue is on the political side...could be quite some time.  

In the mean time, I am going to bring my scanner up from IND this weekend...mostly due to the fact that there's no one to fix problems as they arise there and I can't easily go down there during the week to restart the feed if the power goes out (as it so often does).  I have tried setting the feed up on the machine I have at Purdue before and have had problems.  However, I will try to work on it this coming week after Tuesday, as I'm incredibly busy until then.  So, look for it hopefully next week if I can get the issues resolved.

LAF is up...it's under class D airports.  I only have one scanner so I can only supply one feed at a time...and there's more of a demand for LAF right now.  I am scanning a couple IND approach freqs, so you'll hear a few aircraft handed off from Chicago Center over JAKKS intersection on 135.75 or 123.85 to IND approach...but when they call up approach you'll only be able to hear the aircraft.  

If you know anyone at Purdue that has an extra scanner they'd be willing to donate or at least let me borrow for a while, I can take it to IND and scan that also.
