I believe the laws in the UK are suprisingly stringent, there is a thread regarding this somewhere on the forums.

When i'm in the UK i live near to Manchester International EGCC - It kinda would be nice to listen to tower and approach!!

Already been asked here a number of times. A simple search of the forum for UK ATC reveals quite a bit, especially:

http://www.liveatc.net/forums/index.php/topic,1573.0.html
http://www.liveatc.net/forums/index.php/topic,320.msg1266.html#msg1266

The only thing you guys can do about it is lobby your boys in Parliament to change the law:

http://www.liveatc.net/forums/index.php/topic,2812.0.html

Otherwise it will continue to be illegal in the UK, and you will never see a feed for it here.

This definitely is a FAQ now.

Just one suggestion for you buddy,

If you live pretty close to EGBB, why not purchase an airband reciever - depending on your proximity you may well be able to listen to approach and tower and maybe even ground?? If not you could listen to Manchester and London control.

It depends on a number of factors my friend. It is dependent on distance from the airfield as well as the topography.

I would recommend have a look at some of the pilot shops online an basically just shop around. I have an Icom reciever they are the most expensive and the quality is awesome. BTW When in the UK I listen to EGCC TNT/HON sector:-) As well as Drayton.

Jason....

go on to www.transair.co.uk, its got a range of airband recievers for sale on there.
The cheapest being about £30 I think.
Also from where you are you should be able to pick up Coventry, NEMA and the Daventry sector at West Drayton.

I used to live about 4 miles from LGW and had a cheap airband radio.  I could hear all transmissions including ground/clearance delivery with that.

Hi everyone,
I am new to Airband and live three miles from Birmingham UK. I recently bought a commtell 102 programmable scanner. It worked fine, however I took the batteries out and it has lost it's channels. I know it is an old bit of kit and it did not have an instruction manual and I am stuck on re-programming it.
Can any one help or advise me?
Regards Peter
