MYLD is out of range for those 2 sectors . Im listening to the feed and see that you have added the 2 . How long will you leave it this way so I know  ?
Thank You . Great Inagua has the RCAG for 135.2 and 126.45 but there are no plans for that area as you said .

135.2 and 126.45 are added to the MDPP Ground feed - I'll leave it that way until the end of next week. Let me know how you make out. I disagree that MYLD is totally out of range because I have already heard traffic there on 135.2 and 126.45 but we will compare the two and evaluate.

Dave I am not asking for a permanent change . Can we do a 3 day top  experiment? You have 2 radios with 124.3 on it . Can we make one dedicated to Center ? I know everyone wants to hear controller but you have rhe Bahamas MIAMI ATC feed with no controllers and that woukd be out of range to cover 126.45 and 135.2 . A radio just covering center frequencies would be awesome for the area  say 124.3 127.8 135.2 and 126.45 which woukd be in range ro cover those sectors  and the other radio can have app dep and ground . Lastly with the reduction of air traffic I dont think it would be that loaded up . Again if you don't want to do this permanently can it be done on a 3 day temporary setup then tou can revert back to the way you have it.  I dont think this is asking much .

We only have one SDR with 124.3 on it at Puerto Plata. There are two feeds that show the frequency because one feed combines Ground and Tower (Santo Domingo is on the Ground feed because that is usually not busy and it is the only receiver we can put it on).

Again, since it is airborne traffic only, I think it can go on the Bahamas receiver near MYLD...why would that not work for high altitude traffic?

Regardless of the test, which I am happy to do, we can't do any expansion at Puerto Plata, so what's the point?  We are happy to put a feed for this at the Bahamas receiver.

Hello,

            Throwing out a request that on one of the Santo Domingo feeds that has 124.3 as a frequency can the 2 adjacent Miami frequencies 126.45 and 135.2 be added to it ? It doesnt even have to be permanent but it but it would be nice as it  would fill air traffic in the SE parts of Miami Center and compliment the Bahamas feed

Thank You

Doing some testing to see if the reception is better from the Puerto Plata or the Bahamas site. We only have two receivers in Puerto Plata so adding these frequencies would further crowd Ground at POP. As it is, Santo Domingo Center 124.3 is not heard due to the transmitter being on the other side of mountains. The 135.2 RCAG site on Grand Turk is a water shot but kind of far from both receiver sites, so it would obviously be aircraft-only anyway. We have 4 receivers at the Bahamas site so it would be better to isolate 126.45/135.2 onto a separate receiver there.

Pilot/Controller Forum / KATL vs. Mother Nature

Listening to my favorite "radio" station on my way to work, KATL, it still amazes me the syncronization between ATC and Aviators, when Mother Nature is in a nasty mood.
Stay Safe !!!!!

He is....but unable to effect repairs right now. Would lvoe to have another viable receiver site near SLC if anyone is around there and interested.

PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. (CBS12) — A small plane that crashed in Pembroke Pines last month, killing three people, appeared to be having engine trouble before takeoff, according to a preliminary report from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).
A witness at North Perry Airport, where the plane departed from, said he heard an engine run-up being performed near taxiway Bravo before the plane took off, according to the report. He said the engine was sputtering, “like rough idle.”
The witness also heard cycling of the propeller “a few times” and the engine backfired when power was increased during each sequence, the report states. He further reported that the engine rpm sounded “high, very high. From low to full RPM repeatedly which was more than a normal run-up. He was doing it fast.” However, the witness didn't see the plane take off.
According to recorded air traffic control communications, the plane was cleared for takeoff and the pilot was instructed to enter the left downwind leg of the traffic pattern, "which was acknowledged," according to the report. There were no distress calls from the plane during the flight.
Another witness, a certified pilot, saw the plane climb slowly after takeoff, then watched the plane stall in mid-air, spin and then go down with its nose aimed at the ground, the report states. He heard the plane experience a total loss of engine power, saying it “failed completely.”

Yaacov Nahom and Grant Hustad were the only people inside the plane and died in the crash.

It's unclear who was piloting the plane.

Nahom owned the plane -- a Beech B36TC -- according to the Sun Sentinel. Nahom might have been trying to sell the plane to Hustad, an airplane broker, since a listing for the plane advertised it for sale for $299,000.

The plane slammed into an SUV, driven by Megan Bishop, and her 4-year-old son, Taylor Bishop, was in the backseat. Megan Bishop was seriously injured in the crash, but her son died later that day.


He said he then heard a bang and an explosion.

Several videos from around the accident site captured crash. One video showed the plane caught fire about two seconds after right wing hit the ground.

Update----The young child who was in the SUV died later from the injuries------

thoughts and prayers for all

A single-engine plane crash left two dead and two others injured when it crashed into a car shortly after taking off Monday afternoon.

The Beechcraft Bonanza took off shortly after 3 p.m. at North Perry Airport in Pembroke Pines, Florida, located about 20 miles north of downtown Miami. The plane crashed in a residential neighborhood, police said.

Video captured by a local resident’s doorbell camera showed the plane falling from the sky where it struck a car as it was driving down the street. The plane then skidded down the street before bursting into flames, which spread down the road.Two unidentified people who were on the plane died in the crash, NBC Miami reported. An adult and child who were in the car were taken to a local hospital, according to NBC Miami. Their conditions were unknown.

The ZSLC feeds seem to be the only ones working. The tower feeds are just garbled static. Not sure if the feed owner is aware or not. All feeds are showing up though.
