We now have a permanent feed in Oshkosh, WI - and there will be a temporary feed for the event this year as well.

ATC procedures:
http://www.airventure.org/atc/
NOTAM PDF:
http://www.airventure.org/2008/flying/2008_notam.pdf

Looking for frequency suggestions (how to split the feeds) from those who have been through the drill.

Wish I could attend but will be unable to (again!).  I have never been to Oshkosh...one of these years.

-Dave

Excellent news, Dave!   Congratulations on landing it.   Absolutely looking forward to this.  Be sure to advertise this feed on the home page in big, bold letters a few weeks before the event.  That should garner some additional traffic.

Take heart in knowing that you are not alone.  I have never been to the event either, despite thinking somehow I could arrange the time to do so.  Maybe we ought to hook up and fly out together some year.

Here is a screen shot of the frequencies in use during the fly-in.  Typically, (and there is no typical day, I know) runway 27 and runway 36 are in use for landing VFR traffic and both frequencies are the most interesting to listen to. Lots of stuff going on at once!

Last year (or was it the year before), they opened up the parallel taxiway to 36 as 36L, didn't they? I can't remember..

Anywho, does the volunteer for the feed (thanks, btw!!) plan to have a booth or something at the show?

No booth at the show...but we are working on getting some flyers out to another show exhibitor to give away.

I have to say thank you to Dave for letting me host the Oshkosh feed, I am really happy to do it, I also have to thank him for his patience with me as I got things together, I will have Oshkosh up all the time along with Appleton and will host some of the EAA frequencies along with coverage that will be provided from EAA, it should be a great opportunity for the people like Dave that don't get a Chance to be there.

There will be plenty of advance advertisement...on the site and hopefully some other sites.

Sounds like a plan on Oshkosh!

The parallel taxiways are controlled on the same frequency as the adjacent runway, so no new channel is required here.

I'm planning on going next year. You probably don't need a booth. If you camp at North 40, you can just have a nice banner and still get some decent traffic. You should also give out flyers to perspective feeders as well as listeners. I'd bet that you guys would be quite popular there.

When I go, the plan is that my family drives with my folks in an RV while my Uncle and I fly there (took quite a bit of convincing for my wife to agree to that). If you guys can make it next year, let me know.

I'd really like to go this year, but it doesn't look like I can get the time off work.  I'm taking a week off about two weeks before AirVenture for vacation.  Next year hopefully we can get out there.

Is it possible to add Green Bay Departure/Arrival or even Appleton (KATW) to this feed,  or is it out of range of your antenna??  I would love to hear a feed from my airport even though its usually slow!

Too far away.

But doesn't ZAU/ZMP have some transmitters at OSH?

ZAU has been replaced with MKE appch. They will be using 127.0 for 6000 and below and 127.37 for 7000-13000. This is their first EAA, they aren't ready and it will be quite an airshow just for that reason. ZMP has 125.55 at ATW. GRB has 126.3 at ATW and that will be their busiest freq.

I'm probably too late for this suggestion, but it would be really nice to have Fisk Approach (120.7) on a separate feed....... very interesting listening usually!
