Is there any hope of a Chicago O'Hare feed or are their restrictions?  I am too far out to get tower transmissions and the investment into my scanner BCT15 was anything but helpful...

Thanks!

Another vote for an O'Hare feed!

I'd like to help when I get a scanner. I'm probably close enough to the airport to get decent reception, so I can help feed one of the many frequencies in use.

(Related note to anyone in the north suburbs: Any volunteers for feeding Chicago Executive?)

I would like to hear a Midway feed, an ORD feed would be great too. Though, by this time next year, I could be going to college in Romeoville (Lewis) and maybe living further north. That'd put me about 20 miles away from Midway. I might be able to put a MDW feed up, but that's a long way off.

Don't know what happened to the Midway feed that used to be here.  Hasn't been online lately and I miss it. Hope someone gets one up again sometime.  O'Hare would be very nice too.

My office is 1 mile away from O'Hare runway (west side of airport) and if someone can provide a scanner ( most important is pre-set, I don't know how to set) then I can try to do the feed. I can't afford to buy $200 scanner for this hobby.

Last thing is I like to test it out for couple weeks first, don't want the live feed taking up too much of my DSL bandwidth as I need to use netmeeting most of the day.

Any comment are welcome. But don't blame me  grin

A single feed takes up 16kb/s of bandwidth on the feeder side.

You misunderstood.  I said "a single feed takes up 16kbps of feeder bandwidth."  Is that an ambiguous statement?  smiley

LiveATC does the "heavy lifting" of providing bandwidth for the many listeners we have - if we burdened every feeder site with that task, that wouldn't work very well, now would it?

Basically, you send one stream to the servers, and they redistribute it  grin

Hi Dave

Oh, I see ....  grin  I am ESL so English is not good enough to understand your statement.

let me first buy the scanner and setup the frequencies, make sure it's able to catch ATC at O'Hare. Then I let you know when I am ready for the live feed.

Anyone got recommended scanner ( may be around $100 ) ? and frequencies handy for ORD arrival & departure ? It's going to help me alot to speed up the setting.... because I don't know much about scanner and I am newbie.

I picked up an Old Bearcat 210 XLT Scanner from Ebay for 35.00. Is that cheap enough? grin

The KORD feed is now live!

http://audio.liveatc.net:8012/kord.m3u

Note: Feeder is within 1-2 miles of KORD.  Looking for frequency suggestions...final controller is hogging the feed right now.  Right now there is only one receiver - open to suggestions.

Note: There may be one or two other KORD feeders ready - still need to iron out details.
