This is just an opinion, get a list together type post, to see what everyone is really interested in listening, i.e. the feeds they'd most like to see on.  I personally used to live in Miami, and if anyone knows KMIA or has been through there, that place has air traffic like crazy.  Heavies taking off over major highways and tons of ground movements.  If anyone can get KMIA online, please do.  I'd also like to hear Washington/Dulles or Phoenix Sky Harbor one of these days too.  Reply back with what you would like to see.

Yeah good point.  If you read the post from the TSgt over at Kadena AFB, in Okinawa he said he's trying to get it hooked up so you can hear all the F-15 traffic over there.  It could be really interesting to hear all the convos for touch-and-go's.  That guy has a good feed too, cause Naha Int'l is just 20 miles from there and that airport has tons of traffic in and out of Okinawa.  

My only thing about smaller airport feeds is that you might need to wait like 10 min. in between responses.  I dont have the time to sit and wait that long hoping to hear a two second response.  I'm not downing your interest in them or anything like that, im just more in favor of a KBOS or KORD feed w/ chatter every few seconds.

I'd love to hear ATC from places I've been and would be interested in working at such as SFO or OAK tower, PDX tower, SEA tower/TRACON, Anchorage Tower/TRACON, and some of the Anchorage Center freqs used between ANC and the Pacific by all the Asian bound traffic.  I think SFO would be particuarly interesting since they "shoot the gap" so often...meaning they depart traffic off 1L/R in between arrivals to 28L/R.  The more complicated airports are always interesting to listen to.  In the long run though, any ATC fascinates me....doesn't take much.  Hopefully if I get out near any of these when I'm working at a smaller facility moving my way up I can set up a feed.

Throw a center freq in there... Thats what I did for the TVC feed.  TVC is hopping during the day, and added the fact I have the high altitude Minny Center freq in there, you can hear a lot of Intl traffic.  Pretty much nonstop.

Oh, I completely agree with you about the SFO and OAK sectors/towers/etc.  California is so busy no matter what major int'l airport you are at.  Speaking of which.....someone PLEASE get LAX online....i was reading somewhere online about one of their tower controllers.....he is supposedly one of the top 5 controllers in the US.  I would think listening to him speak could convince any ATC nut to listen in on him.  I know it might be kinda hard to pick him out, but I know the guy at KBOS by his voice now, and ill sit there for 2 hours straight to listen to that one particular guy work.  The reason im so interested in KMIA and LAX is that they get all the US traffic but they also get such a variety of outbound traffic to Asia and Europe that you not only get to hear different planes go in and out, but you get to hear foreign dialect and just that sense of variety instead of the same ol plain out English here in the US.

More uncontrolled airfields... reason being that perhaps the inexpreianced on VATSIM and other similar networks will use UNICOM/CTAF properly instead of giving us thier life story, including what they had for breakfast and thier intentions3 hours in the future

"CALLSIGN... at gate 31C taxing to runway 31C IFR to PHX via MZV direct GPS c/m 5000 then up to FL390 expecting ILS runway  ect ect ect ect"  cheesy

More high altitude sectors, and not so many frequencies on one radio at a time, it makes it impossible to follow the traffic flow when it's busy.

Perhaps operators could concentrate on certain areas at a time, like monitor only Tower on certain days and Approach on other days, instead of everything at once ? Personally I would find this a lot more useful.

Ultimately the best solution would be radios/software that would enable the listeners to control/tune the radios themselves via the internet.

My compliments to the people who set up this site and the many who volunteer their time and radios. Great job !

Cheers,

The current available links are enough to keep anyone busy. Other than that I wouldn't mind being able to listen in on more international airports, US or otherwise. Definitely LAX! And maybe a few major company operational ferquencies at the larger airports. It's getting away from ATC a little but it's still airband. ACARS is great but it lacks that human presence.

Adding on to what JetScan said about monitoring only certain frequencies at a time, would be possible to edit our feed's description on the Live ATC Feeds page to reflect what is currently being scanned?

I'm not sure if it would be feasible, but hopefully Dave can give us some insight.

I know this is a long shot but I'd like to hear Tracy Municipal Traffic (KTCY - Tracy California -  122.80 I believe). KTCY is an uncontrolled airport 60 or so miles roughly east of KSFO.

"waggle: do you fly out of Tracy? i visted there alot along with Columbia, I fly out of LVK. Smiley"

I fly out of Tracy but only on my simulator. I am not a real pilot. I confess that the thought of piloting a real plane is both terrifying and exciting but the terrifying part overrides the exciting part. Smiley I suppose I'm waiting for someone to say "Hey, you're good on the simulator. you'll do find in a real plane with a few classes under your belt". Until then I'm just a "wanna be" pilot. Smiley

I have been flying simulators since Flight simulator 1 was availble for the TRS-80 Model I (close to 25 years). I must admit that I am only now concetating on the IFR and ATC aspects of the simulators. Also, I am very fond of flying small aircraft (Cesna Skyhawk) and have yet to master the larger ones (e.g. 747).

Back to the topic of this thread: I probably should get myself a radio. I am only about 2 miles from the airport and should be able to pick up the traffic with no difficulty even with an inside antenna. It's unlikely anyone would host the frequency of such a small airport.
