Is there anyway to make it so if one comes on the other doesnt, so that one doesnt cross over the other? Just to clarify im not complaining either, i love this feed!  Cheesy


I think I can answer that question and I have nothing to do with the site or the feed.

What you are asking would be no different than having a single scanner scanning both the tower and ground to a single channel feed.  You get one or the other but not both.  In the case of SFO, both the tower and ground get so busy that you can go for long periods without a break.  A full time feed for the tower is a must.  If it switched to ground and ground got very busy, it could be a long time before the scanner would have a chance to get back to the tower.

What they are doing with the SFO feed is to have two scanners, one locked on the tower feeding the right channel and a second scanner locked to ground feeding the left channel of a single stereo feed.  The scanners are not scanning at all, but are operating as fixed frequency radios.  In essence you get two full time feeds without having to switch links.  You can listen to one or the other or both simply by selecting the speaker balance on your computer.  

You can easily follow a plane from the gate on the ground freq. and when it is handed off  to the tower, pick it up again simply by switching which speaker you are listening to.

I admit it does get somewhat confusing and hard to listen to when both speakers are going non-stop.

Kinda neat.

Great job on the feed, I for one, like the ground and tower on separate channels

Most audio players have a stereo slider to separate the right and left channels.  If you want to listen to one or the other, use the slider.  smiley

So theres no way to get two seperate links here on LiveATC for both SFO_GND and SFO_TWR? For example, JFK_Clr/Gnd and JFK_TWR? That was my basic question.
Again, im not complaining at all I love this feed, actually a program I have for recording music allows me to take the feed from the archive and cut the right or left channel.

There isn't any way to get separate feeds from here.  They are being streamed together, like a stereo music channel.  Glad you're enjoying it.

that or just adjust your balance control in the Windows sound control to one channel or the other. I was listening last night and as much as it's a shame to miss what's going on on the one you drop, each channel was constantly stomping on each other, so it is better listening to pick one and go with that.
