Aviation News (General) / PBIA experiencing 'extensive' flight delays, cancellations
« Last post by KB4TEZ on January 04, 2021, 04:52:13 PM »

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) — Palm Beach International Airport is experiencing "extensive" delays and cancellations due to the temporary closure of the FAA JAX Center in Hilliard.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A day after someone at the Jacksonville Air Traffic Control Center in Hilliard tested positive for COVID-19, News4Jax learned the center closed Monday evening for cleaning.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the center will be closed from 4:30 p.m. - 6 p.m. Aircraft will be routed around the airspace or handled by underlying facilities while the cleaning takes place.

A tweet from Jacksonville International Airport says the closure “may cause extensive delays and/or cancellations. Travelers should check with their airlines.”

News4Jax aviation expert Ed Booth called the closure “totally unprecedented.”

“It has been open for 80 years now,” Booth said. “And as far as I can tell, and I’ve been flying around here for 43 years, it has not closed in those 80 years. So this is a historic event.”

A spokesperson for the FAA said the Hilliard facility covers flights from the panhandle to Jacksonville, Orlando, and Tampa. It also covers flights in Southeast Georgia and parts of South Carolina.

Listener Forum / Garmin Autoland radio transmissions (aka Autonomi)

Has anyone found / heard an example of the radio communications the Garmin emergency autoland system makes?   They are also now calling this "Autonomi".    I'm curious to hear exactly what the system announces to ATC during the autoland process.

it's not known whether they are active with the reduced flight volume due to COVID-19.

Sounds like they are active (11:00 EST). Very good reception range on this radio. SDR ? If you added 126.700/128.300 you would have most of the sectors to the southwest-west covered as well. Ideally as a stand alone combo 126.700/128.300 feed like what you have with the other ones.
(scouring for any audio now)

Two suspects have been detained after reports of a possible bomb threat forced a United Airlines flight into an unscheduled landing, law enforcement officials have said.The flight from Jackson, Mississippi, to Houston was diverted to Alexandria International Airport in Louisiana on Wednesday, following reports of an inbound aircraft emergency made to 911 dispatchers.

Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office said n a Facebook post that it was alerted at 12.24 p.m. to reports of a "possible explosive onboard" the flight.

Two persons of interest have since been detained have since been detained in connection to the incident, deputies confirmed to KPRC-TV.After making its descent, the plane landed safely before passengers disembarked, the TV station reported.Megann Cox, who was onboard the flight, told KALB-TV the aircraft was mid-air when the crew announced the unexpected stop.

"We got to the airport here, got off the runway on these spurs on the tarmac, she said.

"Shortly after we got here, they powered the engine down, turned all the electricity off, including the air circulation. We've been sitting in stagnant air for probably a good 40 or 45 minutes."

A bomb squad, the FBI and local agents responded to the incident, in addition to the England Airpark Fire Department and the TSA, Acadian Ambulance.

FBI New Orleans released a statement regarding the incident, saying it was "thankful to report there was no threat to public safety."

The agency added that the operation had been a coordinated effort with other law enforcement partners, including Louisiana State Police.

No further information regarding the investigation was immediately available.

United Airlines issued a statement after the incident in which it said the flight was diverted "due to a customer-related security issue".

"The flight landed safely and was met by local authorities who are investigating the matter further," it added.

As this difficult year comes to a close, I just want to wish everyone in our community a Happier New Year. It's been a year with increased growth in new feeds with lots more great stuff to come in 2021. Thanks for all the support from feeders and listeners.

Wherever you are in the world, this year has presented significant challenges in a variety of forms. Here is to hoping those challenges diminish or vanish in 2021.

Thanks and Happy New Year,

Actually I was wrong....that would require an additional SDR, which he doesn't have right now.

This looks like an SDR setup ? Any chance if you have the bandwidth would it be possible to add separate feeds for the ZTL frequencies 134.550 and 132.975 ? Should have controller reception on both ? I'm guessing you don't have the bandwidth but thought I'd ask.

Also the archives appear to be disabled for this feed. If it's not intentional any chance of getting them turned on ?


Thanks for catching that....archives now collecting.

There should be sufficient bandwidth...will talk to the volunteer about the config.
