Attached in case.
At LiveATC is the clip of a complete radar/radio failure at SCT on June 22nd. I was the controller involved on 124.6, and my colleague was on 134.2. This SUCKED big time. We lost all radar and ALL radio comm ability. We have three primary radio channels, and if everything goes to h*ll we have our orange box to plug into so we can bypass everything and talk to you.
The orange box failed, too. I sent five or six transmissions for every one you hear on this clip. I am posting this as a union representative so I don't get fired by the FAA. The file I downloaded is too large here, but go to ATCLive and listen for yourself.
