Listener Forum / Why Are Some Archive Files Over 30 Minutes Long?
« Last post by smack847 on November 29, 2020, 06:43:46 PM »
I assume that when an archive MP3 is shorter than the 30 minute span, it's probably due to a feed outages and that makes sense.  But I'm curious as to why sometimes the archive MP3's are longer than 30 minutes, such as 48 minutes?  Also, in such a case, will the audio at the beginning of the file be from the start time and the extra at the end be part of the next half hour period?

I'm a big fan, and donated again just now.  Keep up the great work!
Listener Forum / Splitting Denver Feeds
« Last post by rbriscoe on November 29, 2020, 11:40:52 AM »
Is there a possibility of splitting the feeds at Denver? It can get very busy during the banks and it is very hard to follow along when multiple different frequencies  are active approach,departure etc. It would be great if this could be done across the board from ground through the centers.

Thank you!
Feed Outage/Status Reports / ZBW CCC1/2 Feed Issue
« Last post by RonR on November 27, 2020, 11:41:03 AM »
Just a quick note to let you know that the ZBW CCC1 and 2 feeds are currently down. These feeds are located about 30 miles from where I am and normally can be managed with a phone call.  Unfortunately, the person that would normally answer that phone is not there this week but should be back by tomorrow (Saturday).  Hopefully all will be well again sometime tomorrow.

Some additional info: the aircraft, a CRJ900 was at FL300 almost directly over Washington DC when the hydraulic problem occurred.  The plane landed safely at Dulles on runway 19C.  Fire/Rescue was waiting for them just in case.  The crew was able to taxi off the runway on their own where they stopped due some concerns about possible leaking hydraulic fluid.

JIA 5381 enroute from MHT to CLT encountered a hydraulic problem while at cruising altitude.  They declared an emergency and were diverted to Dulles where they landed safely without incident.

We'll have to look at the antenna and coax cable again - thanks for the report. Must be something wrong.

Quality on the feed has been really poor since it started back. Can't even hear ATC well at all.

Aviation News (General) / Boeing 737 Max Given FAA Approval to Fly Again
« Last post by KB4TEZ on November 19, 2020, 07:08:51 AM »

After nearly two years on the ground the Boeing 737 Max may soon take to the skies once again. On Wednesday, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) cleared the way for the plane to carry passengers once again, nearly two years after the aircraft was grounded following two deadly crashes, a Lion Air flight on Oct. 29, 2018, and an Ethiopian Airlines flight on March 10, 2019.

“The design and certification of this aircraft included an unprecedented level of collaborative and independent reviews by aviation authorities around the world,” the FAA shared in a statement. “Those regulators have indicated that Boeing’s design changes, together with the changes to crew procedures and training enhancements, will give them the confidence to validate the aircraft as safe to fly in their respective countries and regions.”But, that doesn’t mean you’ll be boarding a 737 Max just yet. As CNN explained, the FAA identified a few necessary changes to the 737 Max, however, those must still be installed in the aircraft. Then, the FAA will inspect each individual plane. Finally, pilots will have to undergo additional training before taking to the cockpit. And it won’t stop there.

“Following the return to service, the FAA will continue to work closely with our foreign civil aviation partners to evaluate any potential additional enhancements for the aircraft,” the FAA added. “The agency also will conduct the same rigorous, continued operational safety oversight of the MAX that we provide for the entire U.S. commercial fleet.”

The process could take weeks to months, depending on the airline. According to CNBC, American Airlines is set to be the first U.S. airline to return the 737 Max to service at the end of this year. United Airlines and Southwest Airlines are expected to follow suit sometime in 2021.

While Boeing is likely pleased with the news, family members of the victims from the two 737 Max crashes are not. "The plane is inherently unstable and it is unairworthy without its software," Michael Stumo, the father of Samaya Rose Stumo, who died in the March 2019 Ethiopian Airlines crash, shared with CNN. "They haven't fixed it so far. The flying public should avoid the Max in the future. Change your flight."

For its part, Boeing says it’s pushing forward with the two deadly crashes in mind. "We will never forget the lives lost in the two tragic accidents that led to the decision to suspend operations," David Calhoun, chief executive officer of The Boeing Company, told CNN. "These events and the lessons we have learned as a result have reshaped our company and further focused our attention on our core values of safety, quality and integrity."
