Listener Forum / Re: LSZH Feed's - what happend?
« Last post by dave on February 19, 2018, 09:36:59 AM »
We will not be able to simultaneously add Departure and Final due to the frequencies they use. The setup consists of four SDRs and al four are serving multiple frequencies (each dongle can only cover 2.5 MHz of bandwidth). That is how we have so many Swiss Radar frequencies. The only option to cover all frequencies would be to switch from single-channel feeds to four feeds that each scanned multiple frequencies.

So this means that you need more equipment for those frequencies?

Especially in LSZH the lower frequencies are in my eye the most interesting ones, as we have several issues which most airports don't have. (Noise abetment procedures, high traffic on converging/crossing runways, etc.). So, it would be really cool to have departure and final back online. :-)

Since we have a limited number of receivers at this particular receiver location, right now the only way to get Departure and Final would be to change the configuration. Specifically, some other feed(s) would have to go to a scanning arrangement - instead of the current multichannel arrangement - so no matter what, someone will be unhappy.  :-)  Unfortunately we can't add receivers at this location right now so perhaps someone else in the Zurich area will offer some help.

Do I detect the aircrew becoming a little exasperated at times with what might be described as a lack of clear planning?

Pilot/Controller Forum / Supposed Fuel Emergency
« Last post by Twocky61 on February 18, 2018, 04:48:44 AM »
I have heard cases of developing world based airlines carrying minimum possible fuel load so as to achieve priority landings at our airports; thus beating stacks of other awaiting aircraft to land

These airlines are loading with as minimum fuel possible, as a cost saving, to make the flight from their countries to our airports. Surely this must be violation of air traffic control procedures, as if they had to divert, they would not have enough fuel to achieve their destination

When this situation happens, are air traffic controllers aware of this ruse? Obviously air traffic controllers have no option other than to allow the fuel emergency priority landing

Are there system's in place where these airlines can be fined & banned from our airports; thus no future landings be allowed

Thanks guys & gals

Listening to the PASC feed at 1330Z I caught EVA035 being handed over to Magadan on primary 133.0 or 135.4, secondary HF
5550. So it seems that they have VHF over at Magadan? Atleast on certain times during the day. Been trying to tune in
to Magadan on HF but so far I have had no luck.

EDIT: 1433Z Finally heard Magadan on HF 5550, flight CAL007.

where can I hear the HF 5.550 feed?


Found a west coast United States feed on SDR. I was lucky to hear anything as signal was weak.
