Reduced Vertical Seperation Minimums will be implemented in US airspace beginning tomorrow morning at 4:01am EST (0901Z). Anyone have any suggestions on a good high altitude feed to listen to for this tonight?

It is actually DRVSM (Domestic Reduced Virtical Seperation Minimums.  My ZBW/KBDR FEED has ZBW 127.575 High Altitude on it and I will bring up the archive when I'm awake tomorrow morning.

All aircraft for flights between FL290-FL410 should be filing with a suffix of /Q (Slant Quebec) and all altitudes between there must have RVSM approved a/c and pilots.

Westbound - Even
Eastbound - Odd
