I know it showed up on the homepage, but I hadn't announced it yet. I have launched a new feed for KSTL that includes all frequencies - Clearance, Metering, Ground Control, and Local (Tower) Control - in both VHF and UHF. The feed is hosted on a hill about 4 miles southwest of the airport, so I have pretty good reception on everything. There are some carriers (namely Cape Air) that operate out of an "alley" of the concourse that occasionally can't be heard at first, but once they start taxiing, you should be able to hear them.

If you listen and hear something clear followed by a response that is more static-y (or vice versa), it may be the scanner picking up the VHF feed followed by the response on the corresponding UHF frequency. I added the UHF frequencies to pick up military aircraft, including Boeing's fighter jets.

Great feed!  Now if we could only get the arrival/departure freqs on a seperate feed!  Also, did you know that ZKC has 2 transmitters in the STL area:  133.150/355.600, 128.350/284.675 are from near the STL VORTAC and 125.900/323.100 out of St. Charles.  Out of all of those ARTCC freqs, 133.15/355.6 is the most interesting with initial sequencing/descent for Chicago inbounds along with cross sector (east/west) traffic.

That's near the top of the list for our ARTCC targets.  Thanks, Paul!

I live about 10 miles from the STL VOR, but I'm not sure where the transmitter is located; so pending I got another scanner, I could see what kind of reception I get from the same antenna I already use for the STL feed.

Also, for those curious, this STL feed is run on a Raspberry Pi. Easy setup, power-sipping, and takes up little space on my "nerd board". I love it! In the picture below, the scanner is out of sight sitting on a stool... I haven't wall-mounted it yet because I need a "sub-panel".

If you go to Radioreference.com and go to the Kansas City Center (ARTCC) page, each RCAG site is identified with Lat/Lon and on the google map.  Just click on the name of the RCAG and select details.
