Interested in running feed. What do i need?
« on: March 02, 2005, 10:30:53 AM »
Hi all, I'm interested in doing a feed for VC Bird Airport (ANU/TAPA), Antigua and I'd like to know basically what equipment i'll need. I have a spare pc lying around with a 256/128 kbps internet connection. I really dont have the money for a fancy equipment, I just need something basic to pick up the ground, tower and approach frequencies and whatever else is interesting.

Thanks...

The main thing you need is a scanner and an 1/8" to 1/8" audio cable to connect the scanner to the PC.

OK cool. Lets talk price. Send me a few links with a few scanners that you would recommend.

I recommend the Bearcat BC350A...you can't beat it for the price.  Or a BCT8.  Google around for prices...these can be had for under $100 USD.
