United 1475, Boeing 737-900 struck a bird approaching Denver which damaged the nose and took out some airspeed indicators.

There is a lot missing from the audio because of all the frequencies on the one feed combined with one frequency not available. I don't have anything after the landing - if anyone finds anything else that would be great.

Thanks for getting this up. That bird certainly did a number to take out the pitot tubes.

Derek - thanks for putting that together - definately a lot easier to listen to!
As for the crowded feeds, another feeder and I may collaborate on these in the future for better coverage and less congestion.
Also, which frequency was not available - one that should be on the App/Dep feed or one just on a different feed?

Thanks,

Mike

133.62 is the frequency that is not available (I just skipped ahead to Denver tower at that point).

Thanks for bringing that to my attention. I added it (Approach - West Low) to the Pro-2006, when it was feeding App/Dep, but looks like I never transferred it over when I moved that feed to the Icom.

It's back on the App/Dep feed now.  grin

I'm "the other feeder" and data and I did get to chat briefly tonight on the phone. Unfortunately I had a conference call in 8 minutes when he called and then we got cut off. Ahh, the joys of modern cell phones. Wink

I just happened to snag a sweet deal on eBay (happens once in a blue moon, I suppose) on a  BC780XLT last night, minutes after someone posted it, so one piece of the new gear is headed this way by slow standard shipping...

Next step is to figure out a new feed computer.  The freebie machine running Linux upstairs has made enough noise and heat to last a lifetime.

And whether or not to mess with a multi-port sound card for future expansion...

Etc. Etc. Etc.

It won't be "tomorrow" but will help out with DEN stuff where I can.  Will see what works best from my location near KAPA.
