Feeds are up however it appears to be a very very week signal on them. For example you can only hear aircraft communication with static on 19.1 and not the Tower or communications on 23.9. Ground and JFK NY TRACON frequencies seem to have the same issues. I gather this is teething issues after the feed problems??? I hope everything will be back to normal soon.

Thanks to everyone involved for their hard work to get the JFK feeds up.

Everything was fine when they came back up - listened to each feed.  Preamp may have gotten bumped.  Checking.

Thanks for the reports.  No more needed.

Feeds are back - signals will be a little weaker than normal.  Preamp and/or preamp power supply issue.  New preamp won't be installed for at least another week.  Since there are eight receivers at this location there is considerable power splitter loss (which the preamp was designed to overcome).

Seem to still hear many or most aircraft on the ground, so it will suffice for now.

-Dave

P.S. Thanks Marco for the remote hands!

What kind of Amp does the feed have? I know scannermaster has 3 different types for airbands.

You're welcome Dave. Glad I can help. Once we get the preamplifier installed, it should fix the performance of the feeds. I seem to be getting most of the transmissions though.
