Feed Setup Pictures / Comparison Airspy R2/mini/Discovery vs RTL SDR dongles
« Last post by thowe on April 07, 2021, 04:21:23 PM »
Has anyone bothered to compare the usual RTL SDR dongles with the slightly more expensive variants of Airspy? These would also be supported by rtl_airband. Is the dynamic range, noise immunity, low noise etc. audibly better? If yes, I would finance an update for my feed.

I have been a feeder for our regional airport for several years now. I scan with RTL SDR between two frequencies Twr and App/Dep.

This works quite well so far. Since there is rarely anything to hear on both channels at the same time, you normally have everything under control and miss almost nothing.

But when there is a lot of traffic, strictly according to Murphy's law, the channel that you do not want to hear always stops.

Now I am thinking about whether I should adjust the feed:
- Separate channels? Unfortunately, I can't listen to both channels at the same time in the LiveATC APP though....
- Both channels at the same time (one left, one right). Might then lead to stress when talking on both channels at the same time....
- Or just continue scanning mode

So depending on the time of day and listening situation, I would have to have one or the other. I would be interested to hear what your experiences or wishes are. Or do you have any ideas on how to listen to separate channels in the LiveATC app at the same time if you want to?

There is no volume.  :-). Those are SDRs.

Looks like a coax cut or antenna blew down. Or something else, as yet undiagnosed. Could take a while since it is an unattended location.

The KBGR feed is on but you cannot hear any ATC ... Is the volume turned down?

Hello all,

Here's my feed  for the local airport Breda International. I'm feeding from Etten-Leur with a Sirio 108-136 Antenna and a Raspberry pi 4. Works perfect with a little help from Dave. Hope to install the antenna somewhat higher in future but it is sufficient for now to receive EHSE which is approx 5 NM from here.

What is the current status of OMDB Feed? Is anyone planning to look for a person to host for this feed. It's been gone for 17 years and I am hoping that this amazing feed can be back soon.
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (CBS12) — All entrances to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport are closed Thursday morning.

According to airport officials, there is a law enforcement investigation outside of Terminals 2 and 3.
All entrances to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport shut down due to possible bomb threat

Delays may be expected and travelers are asked to check with their airlines for the latest flight status.
Fort Lauderdale Intl (KFLL) is currently experiencing departure delays an average of 1 hours (and increasing).


Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport reopens after threat

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Roadways leading into Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport have reopened after an investigation that has caused major delays and backed up traffic for miles early Thursday morning.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office said deputies received information around 1:10 a.m. of “suspicious wires found in a vehicle parked on the upper level of the airport.”

The area was evacuated, and traffic in and out of the airport was shut down.

BSO’s bomb squad ultimately determined that the wires were not a threat, giving an all-clear shortly after 7 a.m.

“Operations at FLL are gradually returning to normal following an earlier security incident outside of Terminals 2 and 3,” the airport said. “Please be patient as FLL employees, including TSA and CBP personnel, are allowed back into the airport to resume operations.”

The only email I have is from much earlier today. I responded about 30 minutes ago but I don't think you are getting email. Maybe check your spam folder?

Hi. Sorry the feeds have had static. I need to move the feeds to a different receiver. The current one for the KSLC tower feeds is a Kinetic Avionics SBS-3 receiver which is outdated and not supported from the UK due to the death to the designer. I have a couple other receivers, but would need a few changes to the architecture of the mountpoints of the Tower feed and probably a few others.

I'd like to make some fixes, but have been unable to receive any replies from Dave or anyone with support to multiple emails. If Dave or someone handling feed support could contact me, I'd love to discuss getting things improved. Thanks.
