Feed has been up while I am doing some maintenance on its PC. Moving to new location within an hour.

Hello,

I enjoy listening to this feed but it seems to be down for long periods at a time.  I live just a couple of miles from the airport and would like to volunteer some help to maintain it.  I'm good with computers and home networking.  Not sure what other qualifications are needed, or how much time we're talking about.  Let me know if I can help.

Thanks,
RussM

Hey Russ,

Thanks for the offer. The feed is located in a Purdue University office, so I don't believe that arrangement would work unless you're a student or faculty member. The extended downtime the last 7 days is due to a lightning- and wind-related power outage we suffered last weekend. In most cases, a simple reboot will restore the feed, but this time something else happened. My schedule and the office hours don't always coincide. When they do (crossing my fingers for tomorrow) I can diagnose the issue further. I will have an answer before I leave for Thanksgiving on Wednesday.

Hi Stu,

The recent storm did lots of damage so the current outage is understandable.

I'm not a faculty member or a student, but I am paying tuition.  smiley (I'll likely have kids there for the next 8 years.)

Keep me in mind cuz I'd be happy to help. Looking forward to listening to the feed again. Happy Thanksgiving!

Tell them they need to stick to the 4-year plan Wink. I know what you mean Smiley. Happy Thanksgiving to you as well, and thanks for listening.

Effective on Monday, 9/15/2014, the LAF feed receiver will cease to monitor Grissom Approach frequencies in order to promote more effective listening to only the LAF Airport. Better monitoring of Grissom Approach is now available on a separate feed located here: http://www.liveatc.net/search/?icao=kgus. If you have any questions, please ask here!

We've been down for about 3 weeks due to building access issues -- it's been summer vacation at Purdue and there is limited access to the office where this feed is held. I've got a short term and a long term solution instead.

(1) If we can get into the building tomorrow, we will attempt to restart the feed PC. Even if that does not work, we're going through with step (2).

(2) An Arrow Antenna GP126 has been ordered and will be installed immediately after Labor Day weekend at the airport's FBO. I use one of these to run the Flint-Bishop International Airport (KFNT) feed and it has been highly successful. The clarity of the transmissions with these antennas is unreal.

(3) The PC will be accessible 16 hours a day, 7 days a week and will be hardwired to the internet with an ethernet connection to avoid problems associated with WiFi on this feed.

If we can't get the feed online in its current location tomorrow, it will continue to be offline for another 2 weeks. Once restored its quality and uptime will be even better than before.
