I can get both sides of N90 on 118.175 and 120.85 with the squelch broken and faintly at that here in NB. 124.75 can get both side at time when I am in the Jersey City area and only pilot side on 126.8 and rarely i do get 120.85 and 118.175 without the squelch broken too. Late night listening seems to have the more clearer reception here. Jersey City area I can recieve faintly 125.325 and 127.175(Transmitter at Matawan NJ) sometimes rarely without squelch i can get 125.325

You can try these, these are the EWR sectors within N90:

North Arrival 120.15
METRO 132.8
22 Final 125.62
Departure 119.2
Robbinsville 128.55
MUGZY 127.6


Freq       Location
-----------------------
120.15   Newark (primary and backup transmitter)
132.8     Solberg
125.62   Sparta
119.2     Newark (primary and backup transmitter)
128.55   Newark (primary and backup transmitter)
127.6     Newark (primary and backup transmitter)
120.85   Solberg

These frequencies are all listed as Newark...I believe the transmitters are right next to the NJ Turnpike on the east side of the field...except the Tower, which may transmit from the antenna(s) on the Tower:

118.3, 118.85, 119.2, 120.15, 120.85, 121.125, 121.5, 121.8, 123.85, 124.75, 124.85, 125.50, 125.85, 126.15, 126.275, 126.7, 127.3, 127.6, 127.85, 128.55, 128.8, 132.45, 132.7, 134.05, 134.825, 135.575.

These are listed as Sparta: 128.25, 121.725, 118.375, 122.5, 125.625, 127.975, 133.15

These are listed as Solberg: 120.85, 132.80

These are listed as Teterboro: 119.5, 120.675, 121.50, 121.90, 122.65, 125.1, 128.05, 132.025, 122.0, 122.20


Typically they are on platforms that are not very high (maybe 10-25' high).  You don't want the ground transmitters very high for air-to-ground communications in a crowded frequency band like 118-136 MHz.  This is mainly to avoid or reduce co-frequency and adjacent frequency interference.

118.175 is listed as Jamaica, Queens, NY and Flushing, NY
120.850 and 124.750 are listed as Newark
125.325 and 127.175 are indeed listed as Matawan, NJ

Here are two shots of the sets of Philly Transmitters, and here is one of those ZAU transmitters.

Dave,

That's great info regarding the transmitter locations. Mind if I ask what your source is, or are you just privy to the information? Next time I'm near Solberg (I like to go to the Somerset Patriots minor league baseball games in Bridgewater, not far from SBJ), I'll bring my handheld along and see what I get.

I don't have an antenna here at home yet, but I've used a 25ft piece of coax with BNC connects to extend my stock handheld antenna to the roof through my bedroom window. Still not good enough to get the ground side of comms though. Where I live in Scotch Plains is low and we have high hills and mountains all around, so it kinda ruins my reception.

When I get a good antenna to put on the roof, and depending on the ground comms reception, I might consider becoming a feeder.

Yeah, let us know what you find.  Whenever I pass through the Newark area I'm usually listening from a mobile radio in my car and seldom have time to take the side trip to verify these things.

The source is a database I have that I picked up off this web site:
http://avionicsnotes.ent.ohiou.edu/rfi/airspace.htm

It's not very user-friendly...I use `strings` and grep on Linux to find things in it.

Since I didn't have much luck picking up gnd and air for the Newark approach freqs, I've resorted to streaming Caldwell tower for now. It's a Class D that gets very busy on w/ends. I've experienced some pretty dodgy controlling there as a pilot, so I'm sure we'll find some beauties in the archives after a while.

Teterboro is next. I have the second scanner ready to go, just need to fire up the 2nd laptop.

OK - I may be able to help here. I think I've got all I need and I checked the FAQs.

I'm going to be using a handheld hooked up to a Scantenna from Antennacraft (got this out of the FAQs). The handheld isn't anything special but should work - it's an Alinco DJ-X3. I'll be mounting the antenna on the side of the house, fiarly high up.

My location is in Clifton NJ which puts me closer to EWR than anybody else I believe. I'm not that into the radio setup side but I listen as I'm a pilot flying out of CDW. Will I be wasting my time trying to get EWR?

I have the rest of the stuff to enable a feed....

The antenna isn't due to arrive until next week so I have a couple of days to ponder the setup.

John.

It's always worth a shot. Looks like your just inside the "sweet point" for receiving an airport. Which in my experience while driving and scanning is about 8 miles. Though I think there are various problems picking up EWR transmitters. Bad location is one I guess. PHL is the absolute same way. I would really love a clear EWR feed Smiley

I think it's great that you are trying to get a EWR feed up and running, however, it's a going to be tough.

I'm a pilot for CAL and based in EWR.  Often on the SHAFF arrival which  runs along V213 north of the SAX VOR, we are expected to cross 25nm north of SAX at 7000 feet as we track south-bound towards the SAX VOR.  That way we stay below the LGA and EWR departures over the GAYEL intersection.  

Often, after being handed off by BOS Center, between that 25nm fix and the SAX VOR, we (at 7000 feet) often have a hard time receiving New York APP on 120.15.  The reason for this is that the transmitter/receiver is located near the TRACON facility in Long Island.  shocked A controller told me one time after I mentioned the problem is that the FAA has had plans on moving the site to a better location.  This plan has been in the works for years...

Unless there is someone who lives near the transmitters, a NYC APP link is only going to be receiving the pilots TX's.
