I'll recheck the audio levels on 35/40/41 later today and will most likely replace that scanner this weekend and turn that into a stereo feed where sector 35 will be on the left channel and 40/41 on the right channel. Oh the scanner covering 133.95 was bad. Replaced that with a spare.  :-D

Listener Forum / New ZOB feed (Moon Township)
« Last post by JetScan1 on January 21, 2021, 09:09:31 AM »
Thanks for the new ZOB feed at Pittsburgh (Moon Township RCAG).

If you weren't already aware, while you are getting great controller reception on 121.075 and 134.475 they rarely seem to put aircraft on these frequencies, especially now with the reduced traffic. If you wanted to hear the aircraft you will find them on 119.725 (combines with 121.075) and 135.175 (combines with 134.475).

The latest AFF and an older version of the ZOB SOP also show 133.075 located at the Moon Township RCAG. I know the RR database shows 133.075 over in Altoona but I'm not sure what is correct ? Can anyone confirm if 133.075 is transmitting from Moon Township near (KPIT) ?

If this was an SDR feed and it wasn't to much trouble it might work better if you could split this feed into 3 based on area coverage.

Feed 1 (northeast)
121.075 - controller
119.725 - aircraft
125.875 - controller and aircraft (sector combines with 121.075/119.725 as required)

Feed 2 (southwest-south)
134.475 - controller
135.175 - aircraft
125.425 - aircraft (sector combines with 134.475/135.175 as required)

Feed 3 (southeast)
133.075 - controller (maybe ?)
132.125 - aircraft (sector combines with 133.075 as required)

When traffic gets back to normal there will be times when 134.475 is split off and used separately but in the past it was only used infrequently as required. Even back during peak times I've never heard 121.075 split off as a separate sector. I'm guessing they would only need it when weather (thunderstorms) are impacting the area ? Anyone ever hear aircraft on 121.075 ? Fortunately even though aircraft don't seem to use it the controller appears to simulcast on 121.075 H24.

If it helps at all attached are my sector notes for the area.

Thanks for that!  As for ZOA 35/40/41 as of this morning volume seems very low, as previously posted.

ENDON, N.Y. (WHAM) — Three soldiers were killed in a U.S. Army National Guard helicopter crash in Mendon Wednesday night.

According to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, the crash happened around 6:30 p.m. in a field area near West Bloomfield and Cheese Factory roads in Mendon, approximately 20 miles south of Rochester.

"This is a burden - a heavy, heavy burden - upon all of us," said Monroe County Sheriff Todd Baxter. "These are our freedom providers - and just showing again, freedom is not free. We lost three great Americans today."ccording to the New York Army National Guard, a UH-60 medical evacuation helicopter was on a routine training mission when it crashed. It is not yet clear what caused the crash.

Sheriff's deputies and area firefighters responded to the field in which the plane crashed.

"They went into life-saving mode trying to rescue anybody that could be on that aircraft or in that area - including grid search - with New York State Police helicopter to find anyone on that aircraft or in that area to see if there were any surviving victims," said Baxter.

The three soldiers on board were assigned to1st Battalion's C Company in the 171st General Support Aviation Battalion.

The helicopter was based at the Army Aviation Support Facility at the Greater Rochester International Airport.

I moved the radios for ZOA Sector 35/40/41 to an alternate antenna. The signal is better on 134.15 now.
I'll look into moving the approach feeds to the other antenna as well which includes 133.95.
Thanks diskus and Chananya for the signal checks!

Hi,

Ive noticed a loud buzzing on BSR2 133.95 the last few days. Maybe just interference, but tough to follow.


Thanks again
