I myself love to listen to live ATC. However I always thought I could bring it to the next level. After a little of research, I have found out about an awesome website that can go great with listening to ATC! First, you get into the airport you would like to listen to, next you head to www.flightaware.com . Here, you can actually monitor & see flights via live radar! Once at the website, you can find the airport your listening to. Then you can actually track the aircraft that you hear from the live atc! It's a very cool and fun thing to do. I hope you all enjoy! Smiley

NOTE: I found out about this website by one of the links on the top of a Live ATC Chat

For the most part it is live though, if you watch closely you can see the aircraft move every few seconds.

Movement of the aircraft does not mean live.  The data that flight aware uses comes from various sources and it takes time to get to the flight aware servers or, in the case of FAA data, it is physically delayed before the FAA release it.

The only true "live" data is ADS-B data and it is only a few seconds old; the time it takes for the signal from the aircraft to reach an ADS-B receiver and the fed out on the internet.
