The feed of NZCH has been good to date so I just leave the outlook express to check mail every minute. (Certainly saves time waiting for downloads of .pdf newsletter at the end of the day if nothing else).
I think I have a pretty simple setup and only 320k going out compared to even the worst US or European rates of 2Mbs it does fine.
What really helps the best the atmospheric conditions. In my location it is far better than a fancy antenna so I hope people tune in every so often when condition give great reception.
Just had a week in Sydney Australia (YSSY), actually stayed about 1.5 miles from the airport so there was plenty to see. Did no take the scanner but should have really as the parallel runway ops was busy all the time, heavies, turbo props and all sorts. Just hope YSSY feed comes back online again soon.
Happy listening and great to hear the new feeds. 100 is not too far off now.
