Feed Setup Pictures / Feed Setup sale
« Last post by Earth2Mars on July 12, 2018, 10:02:41 PM »
Hi.

I live in Delta, BC, Canada. I am interested in hosting a new airport.
I received info from liveatc via email about what equipment to use. However, are there any for sale I can find?

Any feed setups for sale to use in Vancouver, BC?

hey tyketto :)

The official METAR is not updated as frequently, once an hour or specials.

The page i linked has a consistent "every 5 minutes plus every METAR" format.

Sometimes the wind changes quite a bit and the METAR is not changed. Most of the time you hear it on tower frequency so i agree it might not be that useful.
But if you want to check how the wind changed i find i quite interesting.

So some of you probably watch the weather for the airports you are listening too.

Now sometimes the METAR every hour just does not cut it and i found this need webpage from the NOAA:

https://www.wrh.noaa.gov/zoa/getobext.php?wfo=&sid=KJFK&num=24&raw=1

After selecting another airport you need to click "Show Raw Observations" to get a proper aviation format :)

I guess you already know the RVR / runway lighting page:
http://rvr.fly.faa.gov/cgi-bin/displayscreens.pl?refresh_time_is=medium&fontsize=1&gifsize=large&RVR_layout_is=2x2
or http://rvr.fly.faa.gov/
(the first link is what i have bookmarked for easy access)

Oh and for radar images i generally use the MRMS overlay you can activate on skyvector.com


What are your favorite sites for aviation weather "watching"?

Why not get the METAR plus more from the Aviation Weather section at NOAA?

https://aviationweather.gov/adds/

This will not only get you the METER, but AIRMETs, SIGMETs, PIREPs, Icing, locations for turbulence, plus more.

Listener Forum / Timmins CYTS CTAF combined with Toronto CZYZ 128.300
« Last post by Jonathank on July 10, 2018, 10:21:42 PM »
Hello.  For those who tune in to Timmins radio and General traffic, this feed is now combined with my Toronto Centre link (128.300) due to connection issues with one of my laptops.  The feed has been more stable with more radio traffic.  If this is successful, I may delete the Timmins feed and modify the Toronto centre feed for both sources in one channel. 

Thanks.

Listener Forum / Timmins CYTS CTAF update

Hello listeners for Timmins CTAF.  I have temporarily combined my Timmins Radio and Area feed with the Toronto Centre feed on 128.3 due to connection issues on my Timmins Radio laptop.  The connection with Toronto centre seems more stable, which I will monitor for another week or two.  If it's successful, I may delete the Timmins channel, and ask LIVE ATC to modify my Toronto CZYZ channel for both sources.  This will allow for more radio traffic on one channel and less delays between both frequencies.

Listener Forum / Thanks to the CYSB and CYXU feeders
« Last post by Jonathank on July 10, 2018, 04:06:18 PM »
Last night, Mon July 9 I tuned to CYSB and CYXU, to get an idea of how Sudbury radio toggles back and fourth between Sudbury and London. Coincidentally, they both encountered a Jazz flight, Encore Westjet and a Lifeline helicopter flights at both sites at the same time.

Tue AM, Sudbury FSS was relaying flow control times to Jazz and Encore at London, at around 5:50am local. And then another operator relieved the overnight operator from Sudbury at 5:55am, each looking after the local site and the other on the remote site.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks so much for the CYFB feeder. Now I can figure out when my Noranda sector 133.97/119.97/120.72 etc frequencies get combined or split from the northern partnered sectod.

You will notice there is less traffic over Timmins High level at night and much more “oceanic clearance delivery” chatter between 0400z and 09z. Seems like the workload increases at night when the northern half of Quebec is one huge airspace.

Listener Forum / New IAD Departure Frequency
« Last post by CapitalAvGeek on July 09, 2018, 06:39:15 PM »
I listen to IAD frequencies all the time and over the past few days I have heard clearance and/or ground saying, "new departure frequency 135.77." This seems to be the new default departure frequency when only one controller is working departures. When their is a departure push, departures are still split up into two frequencies with 126.65 bused for south departures and now 135.77 used for north departures instead of 125.05. You can still hear the controller on 125.05, though pilots are not.  I am not sure if this is a permanent change of just a temporary one. Figured I would mention something so the feeds can be changed accordingly.
