The original intention was to stream SQL TWR/GND during the day, then a bunch of SFO freqs (twr, gnd, del, two ramps, ual ops, ual maint) at night.

In response to the demand for SFO TWR, though, I'm going to add SFO_TWR to the mix 24x5 (mon-fri).

On the weekend days, it will still just be SQL TWR/GND.

I'd appreciate ppl's feedback here.

Personally, I love hearing SFO tower/ground.  Weeks ago, someone started a thread asking what feeds we'd like to hear, and 2 on my list were PDX and SFO...both of which have been added!  Nothing against San Carlos...I'm sure there are people listening to hear that traffic also.  Hopefully there will be enough feedback for you to determine how to manage the feed.  
I'd love SFO on 24/7...but your location seems to be optimal for picking up both, so I don't want to take away from those wanting San Carlos.  A mix is fine...builds the anticipation for when SFO is on and makes it that much sweeter.  Thanks for asking for feedback!

Maybe we can all pool our resources and get him the equipment he needs to do both? Smiley If he's willing.

You don't need another computer, just another sound card..

I might still have a couple of older VHF scanners in the closet. I could dig them out and see what still works. If I don't, I can surely pick one up at the next hamfest in a month..  assuming that Ivan and whatever is to follow doesn't destroy us.

You might also be able to pick up a USB sound card for pretty cheap. I got mine for $40 at a local electronics store and it works great.

Do you have to have another antenna or can you use a T to connect 2 scanners to one antenna?

That would probably work just fine. I'd ask Dave for sure though. Smiley

Hey, I've always wondered.. what's the make up of controllers in Okinawa. Are they all military?

We are all military in the Tower and mostly in the RAPCON.  We have 3 DoD civilians that work.  In a few months though, we are supposed to get a few Japanese controllers to train in the RAPCON.

Thanks for the SFO/SQL feed. I was waiting for someone to add that someday. Since SQL is my home airport I really like hearing ATC from there and I also am a big fan of SFO because I fly out of there whenever I travel. So basically, thank you keith for the great addon which even includes moffet field. AWESOME!!  Cheesy

I'm going to try to score a new antenna to improve the SFO reception.  I'm finding the SFO TWR/GND aren't that clear during the afternoons.

There's a scanner store near the house in downtown San Carlos called Scanners Unlimited. I will stop in tomorrow morning on the way to work..

Yes I  know that store. Hopefully you can get the new scanner up and running soon. I wanted to buy one but I think they are in the 100 dollar range and I'm not sure if I want to spend that kind of money right now. Anyway, good luck with the new scanner and hopefully it will do the job.

I'm not sure if it's because of a change in weather, or because I moved the scanner 4 inches to the left, but the reception of SFO has improved quite a bit, to the point where I'm not pining for a new antenna.

I hope you guys are enjoying.

They're using another tower freq today, 128.65, not sure why. That's why you're only hearing the controller side and no pilots. I'll add it to the scan list tonight.

I'm taking the scanner to the Salinas airshow today, so the SFO feed will be down until this evening.
