This would be a CZYZ dream setup

Radio 1 - northeast (low/high)

124.925
127.000
124.675
134.575

Radio 2 - east through west low (low)

120.175
132.475
135.625

Radio 3 - overhead/east through west (high)

125.775
134.925
135.825

Radio 4 - west through north (low/high)

132.575
124.025
124.375
121.225

If anyone can provide the location, the internet connection and the PC, I'd donate the money to buy 4 radios.

Hi DJ,
Let's kill the delay question, there is none on the radios I have.
CZYZ is currently running on a Uniden BC 350C, CYYZ is running on a Uniden BC350A
These are setup on two different computers. My plan was to put them both on the same pc.
Now if I end up adding more radios my concern is figuring how I'm going to get 5 sound cards stuffed in there? Unless I can run onboard sound and maybe 2 cards with dual inputs. The other question is how many instances of STWin can you run before you run into issues?
I have no problem putting this together if your willing to cover the extra radios. I would like to keep the radios all the same make. That way I can make a rack to keep everything neat and tidy. I'm 5 minutes south east of Pearson International. I'm running a decent discone antenna and I have both Rogers Broadband as well as Sympatico Broadband so I'm never without internet access. In the meantime if you want the freqs changed on CZYZ I need the freq description with the number.
Hamilton Sector 132.475
Centralia Sector 125.775
East Radar 124.92
East Satellite 133.4
West Satellite 119.3 etc
Best regards,
Tom

AFAIK there is a built in delay function on the BC350 radios that can not be disabled. I think the problem is it sounds like you have a priority function turned on some of the channels ?

Okay well let me know if you can solve these problems, then we can talk about radios.

Unfortunately I don't like BC350's because of that built in delay function you can't turn off. But they are small and convenient to stack.

Are there any buildings or obstructions blocking reception in any directions ?

Not sure why you need this to retune the radios ? But here goes ....

127.000 - Simcoe (east/low)
124.925 - East Radar (east/low)
124.675 - Picton (east/high)
134.575 - Barrie (east/high)
135.625 - Kitchener (west/low)
120.175 - Grimsby (west/low)
132.475 - Hamilton (west/low)
125.775 - Centralia (west/high)
134.925 - Oakville (west/high)
132.575 - Wiarton (north/low)
124.025 - Wiarton (north/low)

Please double check to make sure there is no priority channels set. That would be great if you could retune it to the above only and we can see how it works out. Thanks much ! DJ

Hi guys... didn't get a chance to listen tonight during any of the busier times (doing the holiday family thing... hope everyone had a festive xmas...) but I listened late tonight and followed AC482 from the ground in montreal on CYYZ all the way to montreal centre, so at least to the east, the setup is perfect as far as frequencies go... One question I had for BuZZ56 was whether there are still other airport freqs on there? (does the feed include pearson stuff at night when it's less busy? or is it city centre stuff? because as I was listening to this flight at 1 in the am, I still caught some stuff from staff ground cars talking to ground control driving around on taxiways... I'll try and have a listen again of your new setup sometime tomorrow afternoon or evening when it's busier...

Hi Scrapper, I'll recheck the freqs on CYYZ. I found that I had duplicates on CZYZ so I may have buggered some up on CYYZ as well. I guess I better wait a bit 10 people on there right now....

Listening at 12:45 I can still hear Tower/Departure/Arrival on the CZYZ feed. Can you check and confirm that ONLY those 11 Center frequencies listed above are selected in the radio ? It also kind of sounds like one of those Tower/Departure/Arrival frequencies might be set as a priority channel ? DJ

I'm listening right now and heard a take-off clearance for runway 23. I'm wondering if your scanner has one of those "features" that automatically tunes to the strongest signal around.

I think Uniden calls it  "Close Call RF Capture"

I don't know what is going on because you are definately hearing Tower/Arrival/Departure on the CZYZ feed ?

If that were the case you would think you would be picking up a lot more transmissons on other frequencies, but it's consistently only Tower/Arrival/Departure, maybe some sort of splashover from the other CYYZ feed, although it seems to block out the other frequencies like it was scanning them ?

Newbie alert ... Me
for xmas I received a USB audio adaptor. (that clear blue one, if you search)
This may be a simple way to add many more audio inputs.

I'm in Toronto, not close enough to be a feed, but have some ideas.

buzz, what appears to be happening is on the CZYZ feed, not on the CYYZ feed... although you only have those freqs listed above programmed, we're still hearing clearances for takeoffs and landings on the CZYZ feed... so either your scanner is picking up extra freqs on its own (scanner might automatically be scanning ALL airline freqs, some scanners do this as well, and I don't remember how to turn it off...). I haven't double checked jetscan's freq list above to ensure that some tower or ground freq didn't accidentally slip in there! (but I don't think that's it...) any chance it's still getting toronto city centre tower freqs? (although I don't remember if they have a runway 23, I'll have to check the airports in the area and see if anyone else has a runway 23 other than pearson...
Gotta go for now... talk to you guys in a bit

ok, listening right now at 2156Z on the 29th and again, hearing a landing clearance this time for runway 6R so this I believe has to be pearson's tower we're overhearing on the CZYZ feed... if that's the case, start by investigating if you have the following two freqs appearing on your scanner (118.7,118.35). They are the two freqs for Pearson Tower North and South (6R would probably be on South but I can't remember which freq is which...) you have those two freqs on CYYZ, but I suspect that you either have them accidentally on CZYZ as well or you're getting some kind of splashover like one of the previous posters mentionned...

I'll second that observation that there is either bleedover/or more frequencies on the feed that are making it difficult to listen to. Listened last night(12-28) and it is annoying a bit to enjoy. Definetly YYZ APP is being picked up on the site.

I don't know how it's doing it, grrrrrrrrr! I'll have to find some kind of filter for splitting the antenna to the feeds.

Suggestion for troubleshooting: This may take a bit of time, but watching where the display stops when the audio comes out would be the best place to start (or use a video camera and let someone else tell you what minute to review!) Then listen to that frequency on another radio to see if in fact Tower is simulcasting certain communications on multiple frequencies.
