Listener Forum / Re: ATC down in Dublin Airport

Feeds can go down for minutes to days, much of the time due to reasons beyond our control. 

We monitor all feeds with our 24/7 network monitoring system - so LiveATC and remote receiver (feed) volunteers get notified right away when a feed is down.  Likewise, when the feeds are running on LiveATC-deployed field equipment, we get notified and try to take action as quickly as we are able.

When it looks like outages are going to exist for more than a few days we try to post about them in our Feed Outages Forum ( and/or on our Twitter feed (

Volunteers (and LiveATC, for the many feeds we run) work hard to get feeds back online as soon as feasible.  Sometimes that can take a while, depending on the nature of the failure.  Internet and power outages occur - not all feeds are located in areas with solid internet access.  So sometimes we all have to be patient as these and other technical issues get worked out.

Thanks for your understanding.

I have found out the last 20 hours or so that DUB ATC has been unavailable? Any particular reason

Listener Forum / Re: Can a frequency be added to one of the ZOA feeds?

as 133.70 is already covered on this feed any chance you can remove it from the Fresno feed

I see this has been changed and the delay function has been turned off the Fresno feed. Thanks to who ever made the changes, sounds much better.

Sorry to be a pain but just thinking out loud here. ZOA coverage is excellent but there is still some overlap between some radios. I'm wondering if there is a way to maybe rationalize frequency selection to maximize sector coverage ?

For example you have 2 excellent feeds both with good controller reception monitoring 134.150, "ZOA Oakland 35" and "ZOA Oakland 35/40/41". If you removed 134.15 from the "ZOA Oakland 35/40/41" radio and replaced it with 119.975 and 134.975, the 2 high sectors to the north this would complement the low 40/41 sectors that feed SFO area arrivals and departures between low and high airspace to the north. "ZOA Oakland 35" is great as it is, with the military frequencies on there I don't think it should be changed.

Another example is 134.375 that is covered on both the "ZOA Oakland Center (Fresno)" feed and the "ZOA Oakland Center 32/34/44" feed. Reception of this frequency is weak on the Fresno feed and I'm wondering if it would be better to replace 134.375 with 121.250 (the low sector directly to the north of Fresno) on this radio ? "ZOA Oakland Center 32/34/44" works well as is, it's interesting to note that they cross-couple 132.950 with 119.750 a lot of the time, so even though 119.75 is not on the radio aircraft can be heard on it when the sectors are combined.

Some other ZOA observations.

ZOA coverage is excellent on the Reno feed but this radio is very congested with the Tower and NorCal frequencies. If there was ever a way to get more hardware in this location to split off 128.80 (low) and 134.450 (high) into a separate feed it would help greatly, should have good controller reception on 134.450. I'm always willing to donate funds to help.

I also notice they use 128.700, low sector 10, as the night shift primary frequency to the southwest, might consider adding this frequency to the "ZOA Oakland 11/12/14" radio as these 3 high frequencies are combined into 128.700 overnight. During the day I'm guessing it's not that busy so it probably wont overload the high sectors that are on it now and would give low sector coverage for that area.

The "O85 CTAF/KRDD Twr/ZOA" radio in Redding advertises 132.200, ZOA low sector 42. There is interference issues on this radio making it hard to hear a lot of traffic. Not sure if ZOA is on there or not ?

Overall coverage of ZOA is great on LiveATC, a few tweaks and a couple more radios and you would be close to at least partial coverage on all ZOA frequencies.

Excellent news Victor. Well done.

Hi Geoff,

I'll search for more this afternoon. They landed on 28R at ORD.

How are you getting on with the flying, Victor?

Pretty good actually. Landing and taking off myself already :-D :-D
I am looking if any one has any audio files of the conversation between the pilots and the tower prior to having to divert around an object in their path. The pilots reported an unknown object on approach to them and directly in front of them. This happened on Nov 14, 2016 at 07:30 am EST. The object (UFO) was 8 feet across and the pilots had to pull an emergency maneuver  to avoid the object. This caused injuries to the crew in the back as there was no time to warn anyone.

PAN declared due to low engine oil quantity. The aircraft turned around, drifted down to FL140, dumped fuel and diverted to Shannon for a safe landing.
