132.225 would be an exceptional add to this new feed

Thank You

New ZDC feeds sound very good ! Thanks for getting them online.

Re: ZDC Sectors 07/30/36
Washington Center (Sector 07 Wahoo High)   121.925
Washington Center (Sector 30 Shenandoah High)   127.925
Washington Center (Sector 36 Raleigh High)   118.925

Wouldn't it make more sense to have 121.925 and 127.925 combined with 133.575 and 133.725 on that feed. Then they would cover the same area/flow plus they are often combined and are closer to the receiver than 118.925 and 132.225. Personally those 4 would be busy enough and I wouldn't add 118.925/132.225 on that feed, plus given the distance it sounds like many transmissions on those freqs would be weak and unreadable anyway. A 118.925/132.225 combo feed would be a good add on to the KRDU feeds though.

As usual Darryl good idea.
Forgot about 133.585 and 133.725 in the mix .

118.925/132.225 great idea

I see they have now been added as separate feeds. In the SDR bandwidth I presume. Thanks.

Hi Guys,

As I can see, you guys are right on top of things!  I was just coming on here to post that these new feeds are online only to see that you already found them lol!

There are now a total of 8 new ZDC feeds which can all be found here:

https://www.liveatc.net/search/?icao=kcho

Originally 121.925, 127.925, 133.575 and 133.725 were planned for one feed.  But these four frequencies are very busy and it was felt that splitting them up would make it easier to listen to.  Now 133.575 and 133.725 each have their own feed and 121.925 and 127.925 are combined on a single feed along with 118.925.  This freq was added here because there is some flow from 118.925 to 121.925.  Also, the majority of traffic can be heard on 118.925 but it's true that there may be some lower altitude aircraft might not be heard.  Northbound flights to the DCA/IAD area will start their descent on 118.925 and get handed off to ZDC 127.75 (a Liveatc feed).

I've been listening to 118.925 on my own scanner down here for some time and I thought reception was good enough to include it somewhere in this new feed setup.

Mike you asked about 132.225, this frequency has its own feed now.

At the moment there's a lot of nasty static on many of the feeds... I'm hoping it's those workers I see in a neighboring backyard.

This new receiver site is located near the Gordonsville VOR in Virginia

Yes, SDRs are also in use here...
