Finally got IND up...although it'll probably be temporary.  I wanted to run both IND and LAF this week due to heavy traffic on both later in the week.  I'll post details on that later in the week.  My parents are attempting to keep the IND feed up at their house in Indy but don't know much about any of this so it'll be up and down.  I'm working on acquiring a 2nd scanner to run LAF so that may be up and down all week.  Hopefully it will be up tomorrow afternoon.  Just wanted to let you all know.

IND is up but there's no audio coming through...not sure what the reason is as I'm 65 miles away and unable to go down there.  Should be fixed sometime tomorrow (22nd).

IND audio is working again.  The Air Race Classic ends at LAF at the end of the week, so I'll probably be taking my scanner back to LAF and returning the borrowed scanner.  Then IND will be down until I come across a second scanner...so could be months.

Air Race at LAF is over, therefore IND is down until I come across money for a new scanner.  Probably will be over a year (after I graduate and get a job) till that happens.  LAF will be down at some point for a few hours tomorrow (6/27) as I move the feed from the airport back to my apartment.

IND/ZID is up for the weekend...through Monday afternoon.  Will be mostly scanning high altitude ZID during the day with low altitude and IND mixed in at night.  Due to the apparently popularity of ZID I'll try to keep LAF up during the week and ZID/IND up over the weekends.

Bought an external antenna so the feed will be down off and on June 2 while I figure out the optimal configuration.

OK here's the deal on these two feeds.  I'm hoping to move the LAF feed to the airport.  I had it there in June for the Air Race Classic and it sounded much better than it does at my apartment, about a mile or so from the field.  So, hopefully it will be back up around the end of August.  

As for IND, it will be up on most weekends probably through the end of August.  After that, I'll be working some weekends at Purdue and will be in IND some weekends, so it'll be up on random weekends.  

So in short, LAF back in late August and IND on random weekends.  I was hoping to have both ZID and IND up full time soon but it won't be for at least a year and I'm planning a trip that all my money is going towards...and after a year hopefully I'll have a full time job while waiting for FAA to call.  Thanks all for being patient through all this.  

ZID is up for this weekend, with some IND in there when I get the urge to hear it.  I'll have ZID up a decent amount now that the ZNY feed is back up...gotta love hearing aircraft cross the country.

Good luck with the FAA, Matt. Hopefully you can tough it out on that two year wait. I sure do know I can't wait for my 2 years of waiting to go out to OKC *Sarcasm*  cheesy

I'll have IND on tower/ground today (August 7) as the Brickyard 400 is in town and those should be pretty busy in the afternoon.  Unfortunatly it'll be a bit slow until then, as I have to work 12-8 and will not be here to switch to just tower/ground when it gets busy.  Hopefully it'll be worth it when all the traffic is departing after the race.  I may even switch to just tower...haven't decided yet.  They may end up spliting tower to two freqs...probably just for an hour or two.  Which is not much fo the 9 hours I'll be gone.  We'll see.

I finally got both of my machines up and running smoothly.  I brought my scanner to IND...will have IND running for at least a couple weeks.  I'm working on getting LAF moved to the airport (on the ATC prof's scanner) and hope to have that up within a couple weeks.  I may leave IND up after two weeks...just depends on how much I miss having my scanner at Purdue!

If anyone's willing to donate a scanner...even something cheap and basic, I'll be glad to have IND and LAF up all the time!

Indy's up for this week....that is unless the power goes out at the feeder site again.  Still working on getting LAF up...that's more political than anything else.  Don't know how long it will be.

Lo and behold, more t-storms at the feeder site, power went out, and there's no one there who can restart the feed.  Therefore, as of next week, I'm moving the antenna and the scanner back up to Purdue to run LAF from my apartment until we can get it set up on the field.  Sorry, but it's just too much of a hastle to try to keep IND up when I'm not there.

I can understand that, for sure.  We've had some pretty good storms here tonight and more on the way.  I'm in Robinson, IL, about 100 miles or so west of Indy.

LAF is up again for the first time in months...down side is IND is down.  There is however, more of a demand for LAF at the moment with all the students in the aviation department Purdue finding out about the feed and asking me about it.  And of course with one scanner/antenna, I can only do one feed at a time.

As last year, LAF may be down some weekends when I am out of town.

And something to look forward to...when I finish at Purdue in May, I've decided to stay in the IND area for at least a while, and hope to have a 2nd scanner by then.  At that time I'll probably feed both IND and ZID.

Hey Matt,

Sounds like a great plan!  You are a very dedicated feeder, always yearning to update the feed status to listeners.  We really appreciate your feed, hard-work, and presence!
