Did some IFR work in N734NR in the BUF area today. Departed 9G3 to do some approaches into IAG.

http://archive-server.liveatc.net/kbuf/KBUF-Dec-17-2006-1430Z.mp3

That's just one approach. I start talking shortly into the recording. You'll hear two voices coming out of 4NR. It's not because i cannot communicate, it's just we were having a problem picking up the LOM (NDB) and since my CFI owns the airplanes, he's always concerned about their well-being (hence why you hear him).

Pardon my slight "mumbling" sounding voice. I have braces on which makes it difficult to pronounce certain things (like November). I guess it's just the way they're placed in my mouth (i get them out on the 4th, so it won't be too long).

Anyway, just thought i'd share some of my adventures.

PS I really like to talk on the radio!  cheesy

Hey, Greg, good job!    You sound very confident.  No doubt that IFR training will make you a radio expert.

One point:  You might want to consider downloading the free audio editor called Audacity.   With this tool you can edit the archive clip, snip out what is not relevant to your clip, then save it as an MP3 file and post the clip directly to this forum.  Eventually the archive files roll off the server, which makes references to them here somewhat limited.

Audacity is here:   http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/windows

Also, get the LAME MP3 encoder, which you need to export to MP3 files:  http://audacity.sourceforge.net/help/faq?s=install&item=lame-mp3

That page includes easy directions for installing the one file needed for the LAME encoder.

One other tip:  When you first open an archive MP3 file in Audacity, immediately change the project rate to 44000 Hz.  You do this in the lower left corner of the Audacity window, as seen below.  Simply click on the project rate setting to see a menu of available choices, then choose 44000Hz.  Export the edited file as an MP3 file (File > Export as MP3) and you are good to go.

Thanks Peter, downloading right now.

My mom says I sound like a bored 40 year old man (I'm 16) speaking through a little tube (everyone else sounds clearer). I'll see if i can sound a little better next time. Also, I'll try and convert to an MP3 like you suggested.

Thanks,
Greg

I'm not really good with these programs.

Thanks,

File > Open, then choose the MP3 archive.

It will import into Audacity's editor.  You can then highlight areas of the archive you want to remove, then hit your DELETE key to remove it.  Trim the clip to just the relevant material, and choose File > Export to MP3.  Assuming you first changed the "Project Rate" to 44000 Hz before exporting, you will save a nice MP3 file that can be played in most media players.  Upload it here and voila!

Right-click on the "listen" icon at the top of the audio archive page.



Then select "Save Target As..." on the drop-down menu and it will take you through the download process.

I tried right clicking and the "Save target as" is not highlighted (it won't let me click it!)

You can also try copy and pasting the link into the filename box in the open screen. You will have to wait for it to load though.
