Thank you Jay and hope to have it back online when your time permits.

On the flip side, Charleston channels went offline yesterday so counting on Indy and Clarksburg to provide traffic flow.  Hope to have it back online soon.  All the best.


According to Illinois State Police and the FAA, the pilot and three passengers were on board the single-engine Beechcraft BE24 at the time of the landing on Interstate 355 near 159th Street around lunchtime.
All four were taken to Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox with non-life-threatening injuries. The passengers included a 15-year-old girl and two 21-year-old women. All four are from Wilmington, Illinois.
Family members said the pilot and the two 21-year-olds suffered broken backs, but they are thankful the injuries were not more serious.Family members said the pilot has been flying for years, and rented the plane for the day to go to Indianapolis. After he got to an altitude of about 3,000 feet, the plane lost power.
Police said the plane made an emergency landing due to “unknown mechanical issues.” The plane’s flight records indicate that it took off around 11:11 a.m. from Lewis University airport.  The university said all of its planes used to train students in its commercial aviation program are accounted for.
FAA records indicated the Beechcraft was manufactured in 1975 and is registered to an owner in Chicago.

The FAA is investigating.

Thanks for your response, George.  It's great knowing that the feed is being used and appreciated.  The house work is done, but it's going to take some work to get everything installed and tested in the new location.  I'll try not to let it fall too far down my to-do list! :)

A380 - Did you get any further with this one?  I'm in the Canberra area and have provided LiveATC feeds previously so can help you out if you still need assistance
Here is a Radar playback and audio overlay with Both East and west Tower Freq (left and Right Channel Audio) on Youtube:


Approx 10:23 AM Denver time (16:23 Z)

A Cirrus Overshot the final of 17R at KAPA and collided (Midair) with Key Lime Air Fairchild Dornier SA-227DC Metro  Flight 970 that was on final.

Attached are Two separate Audio files from the Two tower Frequency's

Reports are the Pilots/Passengers of both aircraft Survived, after a Successful CAPS deployment of the Cirrus Parachute, and the Successful Landing(Single Engine) by the Metro-liner.

According to the Arapahoe Sherriff Department the regarding the Cirrus..."Two on board walked away with no injuries."

According to the LiveATC recordings, the Metro-liner Taxied to the ramp under its own power.

Feed Setup Pictures / Re: SoapySDR with SDRPlay RSP1A - weak signal only
« Last post by thowe on May 10, 2021, 03:22:13 PM »
I got some valuable advice in the GitHub discussions at rtlsdr_airband.

The gain must be specified with the RSP1A as follows:
gain = "IFGR=40,RFGR=4";

Explanations of the values can be found here and elsewhere:

Further I sampled with 8.0 MSPS (8 MHz bandwidth). This is much more than the usual 2.5 MHz for RTL dongles. Therefore the FFT size must be adjusted, otherwise the single channels become too wide (side channels audible, too much noise).
E.g. adjust with the global option (default is 512):
fft_size = 2048;

With this I now get quite good audio streams. I will test this further and compare it with the AirSpy Mini I have.

Seems Sdrplay devices have poor Linux support. I'm using RSP1a with Windows only, for RPi is RTL-SDR much better. If you want a wider frequency or dynamic range for rtl_airband, use Airspy. I've tried everything but got the same results as you.
