KSFO Static/Squelch Problem?
« on: January 16, 2009, 03:49:03 PM »
Regarding KSFO feeds - KSFO Tower has some bad static and at times the Tower itself cannot be heard, only aircraft.  It sometimes cuts off the Tower operator in mid-sentence. Similar problem with KSFO Class B feed and KSFO NORCAL Departture feed.   KSFO Ground, however, sounds fine.  Anyone else noticed this?  It began about a week ago.   Sunspots?  Canadian Geese?

I noticed it too.  There are no sunspots on the sun as we are in the solar minimum.  We will worry about sunspots around 2012-2013 when the solar maximum will begin.  As for the geese, I can't help you there.  ;)

But I'd like to see the feed restored to maximum quality as well.

We'll try to check it out next week.  It could take a while to resolve.

Thanks Dave, we all very much appreciate your help and staying on top of things like this! 

The KSFO Tower feed has been much better over the past few days, so I don't know if someone worked on it or it or not.  But I'm just glad that it's back to its original clarity -
