hello, I absolutely love the North atlantic feed. however, in the the that I've had the feed running(nearly a day it seems). I've had maybe 10minutes of actual communications. I am wondering if my connection is bad or something is up with th server.
thanks again for this awesome feed!
I am away from the feed for the weekend so there isn't as much frequency hopping as there usually is when I'm around. I've got it on a fixed frequency (which happens to be NAT Track A, 13306 kHz). On here you will hear New York Center Oceanic primarily...Gander is on other frequencies. The HF frequencies in use change over the course of the 24-hour day as the MUF (Maximum Usable Frequency) shifts. The higher frequencies are generally in use during the day with the lower frequencies (5598,5616, etc.) in use during the night hours.
I am getting a cable that will enable me to remote control the radio when I'm not around. At times when there is little trans-Atlantic traffic it will be quiet. As far as the static, while my receiver does have squelch to silence the static, I haven't been able to maintain a good squelch setting that silences the static *and* ensures that listeners can hear both pilots and controllers. HF single-sideband (SSB) transmissions are difficult to squelch. So just cope with it.
Besides, that static is soothing to listen to, don't ya think?
Perhaps some other volunteers can stream some of the other oceanic frequencies.
It is 1300Z Sunday and I am listening briefly...I've already heard two flights check in with position reports in the last 10 minutes. The oceanic arrivals should be pretty active between now and 2100Z.
