Most of the JFK feeds are back online.  Turns out the preamp was OK after all.

Notes:
1) Tower is only 119.1 until a site visit tomorrow.
2) New York Approach/ROBER (125.7) will be back tomorrow as well.

If anyone is aware of any new frequency changes in the JFK environment please let me know.  The old setup with Tower on separate receivers is likely going away - back to both Tower frequencies scanning on one receiver.


I wasn't gonna ask about ROBER, just had my fingers crossed.

Thanks Dave!

Dave-
I actually liked the tower on separate frequencies-I will miss it if that's what you are going to do. Thanks again for your hard work and keep it up!

Most listeners didn't "get it."  I did it as an experiment and, in the end, I consider it not worth the trouble.  Some listeners want to hear everything, even though they don't realize they're missing some transmissions when one frequency is blocking another. 

The biggest issue, though, was the experimental combined feed - because we don't have the ability to synchronize streams, that caused no end of confusion when Tower was simulcasting on both frequencies - time delays caused echo (at best) and "double transmissions" (at worst).  My conclusion is that it isn't worth trying to explain it to listeners - so we go back to the old setup - frees up a scanner for use elsewhere, too.  smiley

Dave-
I agree with your decision-I guess I just liked the ones separate especially the 119.1 feed. I understand what you are doing-good idea cool
