bit of a long read, but very informative, having flown in and out of both, some neat insights.

When it opened 24 years ago, everyone hated Denver International Airport. Now, it’s turned its public image around. One of my fondest memories growing up in Colorado is the blizzard of 2003. Denver’s biggest snowstorm in a century lasted three days straight. People still talk about it. By the time it stopped, the snow was three-feet deep across the metro area, seven feet deep in the foothills. That week was a visual wipe-out -- roads, sidewalks, yards, porches, fire hydrants, park benches, trash, everything got swaddled in a soft, clean white light. The world looked the way your apartment does before you move in all your stuff.

I believe the 2 USB dongles got swapped around, so the Tower/Departures and Approach/Ground are around the wrong way.
I'm in the process of building a new server with 4 x Raspberry PIs with 4 dongles, this will eliminate the issues and provide better quality streaming audio hopefully.

Civilian Cessna 206 (HL1004) made an emergency landing at RKSG due to "fuel shortage" (emergency fuel). Audio clip is condensed, RKSO controller initially then hand off to Desiderio (A511 - RKSG) tower.

“I just happened to hear a noise, and I looked, and I saw a jet come in to land,” recalled Melon.

It was a Westwind twin engine, and Melon says mere feet before touching down, there was a roar from the plane, and it tilted straight into the air.

“I saw the angle of attack of that airplane way high, and it was so slow, and then all of a sudden, like slow motion it started just turning and rolling on itself,” said Melon.

Listener Forum / Looking For Transcripts
« Last post by teamcoltra on March 19, 2019, 04:28:26 PM »
Hey everyone, I am building a speech-to-text tool that specifically listens to ATC communication and converts it to text (I'll open up the code once it's done so people can use it in apps and things) I already have it most of the way there by just feeding it the phraseology guidelines but the static and such gives it a little harder time. I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find high quality text format transcriptions of ATC communications?

YouTube doesn't work (not text format, also bad quality).

I was thinking of using FAA / NTSB reports but can't find any single repository for them.

I found a short audio segment from this flight on the KOKC Approach feed (124.6).  They check in at 6000 feet, are given a few traffic advisories and a few minutes later are told to "Squawk 1200, frequency change approved".  No hint of any trouble at that point.  No other audio is available after that.

Sundance Airport does not appear to be covered by LiveATC yet so no audio is available.
