No broadcast on CYQI/CZQM CTAF/FIC/Center
« on: January 14, 2016, 11:10:11 AM »
Good afternoon

     I don't know if anyone else is noticing this but I have been listening to CYQI/CZQM CTAF/FIC/Center for the last hour
and have not heard any broadcasts.    I checked with Flight radar 24 and there is traffic in those sectors.


thanks

Yeah I've flipped it on a few times over the past few months, never heard anything.  Anyone know if this feed is still being supported?  A Moncton center/ VHF Gander Clearance feed would really be useful for listening to aircraft entering the NATs/getting NAT clearances.

Unfortunately, some feeds are at remote locations and may be difficult to access in a timely manner.  I don't know if that's the case with this feed; hopefully it's just a minor technical glitch at the feed site.  The fact that you can connect to it suggests that the Liveatc link to the feed site is still active but that maybe there's a problem with the radios at the site (radio turned off, volume too low, stuck on an inactive frequency, etc.) or some other site related issue.

Quick update...been listening to that feed myself for a short time now and every now and then a weak transmission can be heard.  This suggests the problem may have to do with an overly weak signal reaching the radio.  The antenna, signal amps ( if they are being used) or related coax cabling could be the culprit here...
