The thing is with the delay off you are hearing a lot more transmissions, probably around 35-40% more. In my opinion this is much better than having a 2 second delay after every transmission that was resulting in almost 20 to 25 seconds a minute that the scanner was stopped (dead air).
I appreciate the input. While I have always been an avid fan of monitoring in general, my habits from land mobile scanning (i.e. - using the delay to hear a response) have carried over into my feeds. It's apparent that the same effect may not be desired as much in aero monitoring (at least high altitude Center channels). Duly noted.

It's hard to follow because you are scanning way to many busy frequencies which could be improved by not scanning as many.
I think you guys know by now that I am always open to suggestion and most of the time will defer to loyal listeners requests. I can certainly pare down the channels. With that said, my first thought is to do it geographically, starting with the most distant RCAG sites first (ZAB 71 and 72 come to mind). However, I also know someone with more experience in listening may suggest that I consider what airlanes are the busiest first, rather than just RCAG distance from my receiver. That's where I'd need some advice.

I also notice you have the flightwatch frequency on the high feed, you have it listed on the low feed, moving it over there would help.
Gone from high and back to low. I also have retained Guard on Hi as we do get traffic on it from time to time (usually one flight calling another to inform them Center is trying to contact them).
While on that topic, I do have a couple other freqs on the high feed that I haven't listed as of yet - they are the TSU (Tactical Special Use) channel for ZDV and also the UHF freqs for the U-Hi Sectors of 18,30,38,65,67.

As always, I appreciate everyone's input to make any of my five feeds here more enjoyable!  grin

data, if you need help adding more channels, or shuffling stuff around, we should talk... I'm near I-25 and Arapahoe and have been thinking about adding stuff, but duplicating your work wouldn't be smart...

(I do the KAPA TWR feed right now, and it really does need a rebuild since that scanner has a slight hum and the PC is ancient. Perhaps it's time to start work on some new gear in a rack and build it all "right"... Maybe split some stuff Left/Right, etc... The whole thing is just kludged together right now but has been running a long time that way with no significant problems other than Comcast outages.)

Hey,

I have a copy of the frequency and sector splits from the center itself. Would you like me to send it?

What - just tossed that teaser out there and then split?  cheesy
I think a number of us may want to see what info you have...

Reviving dead thread...

We've been chatting. And I've been gathering gear...

BC780XLT, BC350A, power supply, antenna, connectors, coax, and assorted junk are already in "the project pile".

Waiting on some news about a very expensive automotive repair (wife's car's transmission) before committing to the multi port sound card and PC stuff.

Swapped the BC780XLT onto the KAPA TWR feed this afternoon. Also added two frequencies. (Sent to Dave for DB update.)

Audio quality and receiver sensitivity smoke the old scanner. Slight power supply him which will go away after I get the rack built with the DC supply in it.

Well - I've trimmed ZDV-Hi back to 18 freqs now (was 25) and ZDV-Lo is up one to 13.  cool

Suggestion

you are missing 2 very close sectors that involve DEN A/D in not keeping 132.175 and 127.025 on the highh feed and 125.675 is a sector that is quite out of range(barely hear loud traffic on that one and 127.95 if i am not mistaken is a non working frequency.

can you please add 132.175 and 127.025 while deleting 125.675 and 127.95

also thinks that alb center 133.05 and kc 133.45 should be trimmed off

If you think about it it would leave the feed with 2 less frequencies

Sound card is backordered with no date for shipping. Company asked this morning if I would like to cancel the order. Bummer.

(Dave, your favorite Linux sound card appears to be discontinued.)
