I have setup a new stream which covers Shanwick & Gander/Santa maria ( At Night )
http://www.liveatc.net/feedindex.php?type=hf

5598 & 5649 are the main frequencies being monitored.

I do have some noise issues on 5649khz but this will be resolved next week when do some upgrades and move a wifi router.

Enjoy

Milan

Awesome. I'll be tuning into this for sure.

On another note, I'm considering streaming the Shanwick information freq if there's any interest? Also, i'm not sure on the legal technicalities with the UK Law as the freq transmitted from the Shanwick radio station but is relayed to a transmitter in Grantham, UK. Any info would be much appreciated!

Glad you enjoy it.

Unfortunately I wont be around every evening to change frequency.

If one of the established members on here are into monitoring Shanwick/Cceanic and would like be able to switch between the Primary and secondary freqs drop me a PM and I can possibly arrange remote tune via Ham Radio deluxe in the future.

Milan, thanks for providing this feed!

Firstly, would it be possible to offset the frequencies by .02 khz please so that the selcal decoders will work?  At the moment the selcal spikes are falling between the letters instead of exactly on them and the selcal codes are not being picked up.  All it requires is adjusting the freqs to 5649.02 and 5598.02.  There will be no noticeable different in the voices.  I've actually already emailed Dave about this prior to seeing this thread so you may have already received an email from him.

Secondly, I could help with the frequency changes if you wish.  Dave and I chat quite regularly via email about the NAT freqs and traffic so I'm sure he'd testify I am "established" enough for this role.  grin

Mark, are you talking about 5505 or something else?  If it's 5505 then I don't imagine anyone would be interested in listening to automated weather reports.  A radio tuned to 4675 through the night and morning would welcome if you can pick up Shanwick and Iceland fairly decent.  Shanwick often uses it through the daytime too if traffic is going into Iceland FIR.  The old days of 6622 being a busy frequency through the day with Shanwick seem to be long gone.  Gander seems to use it for the westbounds at 30 and 40w now, along with 8891, 8831, 8864 and 8879....  sad

To anyone currently listening, apologies for the interruptions and freq changes to Shannon VOLMET, I am working with gman to see if we can improve the audio quality and get rid of the garbles, muffles and echoes.  We seem to have made some progress and it now sounds clearer and selcals are decoding okay, although they still have a distorted sound to them.

It's now back on 5598.

Nope it's a VHF frequency on 123.95. It's the place to go to pick up Oceanic clearances/requesting route & altitude changes etc for Shanwick/Gander & Santa Maria.

I've attatched an example which I just recorded. Smiley

Ah yes, I know what you mean now.  I'm a HF man myself so it wouldn't be of any interest to me personally but it could be to others.  smiley

We discovered that the noise reduction setting on the sound card was causing the poor audio quality.  It's now been set 'off' and the audio now sounds spot on, I'm sure you will all agree.

There's a chance it could be on a different frequency through the night if there's more traffic on another frequency.  For example, 4675 is often used through the night for (mainly) the European eastbounds so if there's not much doing on NAT-A/C freqs it could be tuned there (or 2971/3476) if someone is awake to tune it.  If no-one is available then it will probably stay on 5598 all night.  smiley

Stream might be down for a short while this evening while I try to find the source of the buzzing background noise.
I suspect it may be my wireless ISP antenna which is Power over ethernet.
I intend to move it further away
