A new, second ZBW/ZNY/ZDC (JFK Area) #2 is now up and running.  I've been wanting to do this for some time and it's now done!

There are now two ZBW/ZNY/ZDC (JFK Area) feeds, #1 and #2.  The frequencies on these feeds are as follows:

ZBW/ZNY/ZDC (JFK Area) #1
Boston Center (BOS46 Sector Hi) 126.225
Boston Center (BOS46 Sector Hi backup) 118.425 
New York Center (Sector 66 MANTA Low) 128.300
New York Center (Sector 67 DIXIE low) 118.975
New York Center (Sector 86 Atlantic Oceanic Hi) 133.500
Washington Center (Sector 54 Hi) 120.975
Washington Center (Sector 59 Hi) 133.125
Washington Center (Sector 54 Hi) 121.375
Washington Center (Sector 58 Hi) 121.025
Washington Center (Sector 34 Hi) 120.75
Washington Center (Sector 51 Casino Lo) 127.700

ZBW/ZNY/ZDC (JFK Area) #2
Boston Center (IGN20 Sector Hi) 125.575
New York Center (Sector 55 YARDLEY Lo) 134.600
New York Center (Sector 42 East Texas High) 127.175
New York Center (Sector 56 Kennedy High) 125.325
New York Center (Sector 34 High) 132.175
New York Center (Sector 56 Kennedy High backup) 134.375
New York Center (Sector 9 High) 134.325
Washington Center (Sector 19 Hi) 125.45
Washington Center (Sector 12 Hi) 126.875
Washington Center (Sector 10 Hi) 132.275 (used occasionally)
Washington Center (Sector 18 Hi) 132.525
Washington Center (Sector 4 Hi) 133.975

Enjoy!

Ron,

Still planning to put 132.175 in the frequency listening section? It's missing from the list.

Hey Aero,

132.175 is being scanned on the #2 JFK area feed, for some reason it hasn't made its way into the list yet.  What you see in the list is handled by someone else.  But, I can tell you that 132.175 is being scanned.

Ron...how about 121.32 and 133.15? They are the primary arrivals for JFKs LENDY6 arrival during the busy times (~18z-01z daily) 121.32 is out of North Mountain, PA and 133.15 at SAX.

A second opinion. The radio is already overloaded with too many frequencies as it is. I'm curious how much you would expect to actually hear on these additional frequencies if they were added on, given all the other frequencies that are already being scanned ?

Sorry Jim, I have to agree with Jet on this.  It would be too many on one feed. In fact, I think it's almost too many freqs as it is.  But it is a good reason to add another feed.  I would consider that, I have the radio for it. Just would need to gather a few other things. A few other freqs could be added too, like ZNY128.575 and ZNY 132.875. Interesting idea tho... Smiley

Ron...yes agreed...lots of freqs. Maybe rearrange the feeds so that JFK Arrivals sectors were on one feed and departure sectors on the other. Right now it looks like its more geographic. Easier to follow when the inbounds and outbounds are each bunched all together, etc. Maybe take out a few that are duplicated by Dave's Atl/Mil feed from NH?

BTW...did you re-tighten the squelch on the IGN20 feed (125.575?)...yes it was noisy...but when you opened it up a bit you could still hear a bit of the ground side...I liked that! Your feed...your call... Just my 2 cents...

BTW Ron...my vote would be to use that other radio and split your Clipr feed into two feeds...that's super busy with the 4 ground-side freqs and often too busy to "follow" flights/comms. Specifically...135.8 is often stepped on by 134.0 or 124.52... Again...my 2 cents!

Actually that is also part of the plan. at some point those feeds will also be split up. The one feed 134.0 was added because I could get a decent signal there.for some reason I cannot receive 125.575 there even though it comes from the same transmitter as 134.0. by the way that feed originates out in Ridge New York which is a lot further east from North Babylon. I agree with you that those feeds should be split up you are right they are very busy. I actually have more than one scanner radio I could put into service, the problem is I don't have the raspberry pi's and I also don't have proper antennas.once I have the necessary equipment I would be happy to expand the feeds I have now.the JFK one feed and the JFK to feet are both operating from a single Raspberry Pi. This system is working actually quite well. So maybe that could be done to the single feed out in Ridge. hmm, you've given me something to think about, I'll have to look into this idea.

Heck...I'll send you the $$ for a rasp pi to split the feed!... Thats what we are using at my feed I set up at my dad's near Rome, NY... ZBW-RKA & UCA/ART feeds. I knew they were busy...so set out w/two feeds. working out great.

BTW...can you retweek the feed squelch to hear the "noisy" IGN20 sector?

Oh, what a coincidence! The feed I have out in Ridge New York is also at my dads place. he's very close to Calverton where the signal originates from. right now I'm not home. But when I get back home tomorrow I will look into the IGN 20 signal and see what I can do to improve it. I'm actually in Stamford New York right now and will be going back home tomorrow morning.

by the way, I appreciate the offer for the Raspberry Pi. I might take you up on that! I even have a couple of Griffin iMics lying around so all that's really need is the Raspberry Pi. I'll let u know! Thanks for the offer!

Thanks for the feeds guys. I would be happy to donate funds as well to get more radios or hardware. PM me if you can accomodate more or need a donation.

Thanks Jet, I appreciate the offer.  Right now I'm experimenting with splitting a single antenna signal to supply two radios.  I might go out to my parents place today and see what happens when I split the signal there.  The problem there is that they live in a gated community and they have their rules about antennas being visible to others.  There's really no room for play there as far as placing the antenna in a higher location (oh, if only I could place it higher  angry). So, basically, I'd have to work with what's out there right now.  I'll PM you when I have a better handle on what can be done there.

And Jim, yes the two JFK area feeds are split somewhat geographically because a lot of the traffic through this area goes north/south.  So I tried to arrange the feeds to follow that idea.  For example, on JFK2 you can hear northbound overflights getting handed off from 126.875 to 125.45 and then I believe to 125.325 and then to 125.575.  There's also departures from KLGA that come on to 134.6 and get handed off to 134.325.  From there they get handed off to 133.475 (covered by someone else's feed) and then to 133.975.  KBOS arrivals start their descent on 125.325 and get handed off to 134.0.  So, there is some method to the madness Smiley

BTW, I've been listening to 133.15 for the past hour now and thus far haven't heard anything.  Maybe they only use that (and 121.325) when things get busy...
