>> One idea would be if I was home I could block certain frequencies during the high traffic times so that just high level channels were scanned then return the scanner back to all frequencies listed for the feed. If this sounds reasonable let me know the times of day and can give it a try. I know DJ is interested in the high level flights over PEI. <<
If it's convenient for you, any chance we could try a test tonight ? Looking at the NAT tracks they are going to be central tonight, so most of the traffic will be passing directly through your coverage area. If you could set it up to scan all the Moncton high altitude frequencies in range of Charlotettown that would be great !
That would be the following frequencies only:
So if you could load the above in, with all delays off, no priority set, and no other frequencies, that would be great ! It would be just for tonight as a test, say anytime after 2300Z.
Charlotettown is just on the reception edge of Daves radio in Boston. If Dave can accomodate it, it would be good if he could retune his Boston Center radio to just 134.950, 133.450, 118.825, 128.750, 127.825 for tonight only. Then we would have continuous coverage of about a 550 nautical mile coridor right along the route of the majority of NAT traffic tonight.
See map below. 210nm range rings around Boston and Moncton, so you should be able to hear the handoff from Boston to Moncton on the Boston radio and the initial call with Moncton on the Charlottetown radio. Standing by if you can do it ?https://www.notams.jcs.mil/common/nat.html
