Who misses the clearance delivery on the "JFK Ground Tower feed"? It was always so nice to hear the clearances of those without PDC capability.
Not me. Personally I find it extremely irratating when to many busy frequencies are being scanned. If it's busy I find it's better to try and concentrate one area like Tower or Ground/Clearance, but not both. Dave has the best solution by separating them on different streams.
Another solution that would work on radios where another stream is not available and people wanted to listen to different sectors or frequencies would be to rotate through them over a period of time. Like listen to Tower for a week, switch to Ground/Clearance for a week, then approach for a week, etc. I realise this would increase the workload of the person running the radio, and is just my humble non paying freeloading opinion. The work of the people supplying the feeds is much appreciated at this end, keep up the great work.
