Listener Forum / Re: JFK Approach CAMRN now on 118.4?

Appears that 118.400 will need to be removed from ROBER and added to JFK Final.

The only time I heard 118.400 used for Final was briefly on the 9th. The interference problem seems to be with 128.125, and all the times I've checked since they have been using 118.400 in place of 128.125. So makes more sense to add 118.400 to the CAMRN radio, from what I've head so far anyway. I'll take a closer look at the archives next week and see what they have been doing.

Good Day

     I have been listening to CYQM Moncton Center High which includes freqs 133.875, 132.70 and 127.125 and there has been a lot of broken transmissions, kinda like the machine is trying to settle on something but can't for some reason.

Is there anyone else who knows about this and is it a constant problem?


thanks for your help in advance

There was some interference and a related software issue...should be better now.

Just checking some archives it sounds like things started to change on Oct 09. On the 9th at 20Z 128.125 was active and they were using 118.400 for the final position (usually 132.40). Then on Oct 10th, 128.125 was active in the morning until 11Z then it went dead (nothing heard) until 1607Z when it came back for a bit until 1627Z when the controller started offloading traffic to 118.400 (same controller) then continued to simulcast until 1635Z when it went dead again, then at 1807Z you can hear the FAA do a test count twice on 128.125, then at 1833Z came back with the controller asking a Delta flight to switch from 118.400 to 128.125 for a radio check and asking the flight if they were hearing any interference, then shortly after started using 128.125 again for aircraft. So sounds like some sort of interference issue on 128.125.

Thanks JS...the last time that N90 area did a frequency change it was due to interference. Radio frequency interference in the NYC area can be a nightmare. Will continue to monitor for a couple of days to see how this plays out and then will get radios modified. Appears that 118.400 will need to be removed from ROBER and added to JFK Final.

Oh, and the tower controllers have been known to use the LiveATC feed as an unofficial playback when they need to check something that doesn't justify an official request to pull the tapes ☺

You are correct. YBAS is a Class D airfield, ATC is 100% procedural. The tower do have some unofficial ADSB capability but it is not for operational use. There was a study a while back that determined that the traffic volume through Alice did not justify surveillance capability.

I have noticed the same issue however I chose not to bring it up since I would be labeled a pest

133.875 is an inactive frequency

hoping that a temporary experiment would add 118.875,124.975, and 132.525 to this one but I am asking much I am told



NEED A RADIO near Sept Isles to receive 133.35 and 126.325

NEED A RADIO near Natashquan to permanently receive 118.875,124.975, and 132.525
