I clicked on Pilot Hobbyist and am very active with Flightsim, but the Ham Radio option also applies to me (KA9PHI).
BTW, new here.  This site is great Smiley

My interest in monitoring ATC is hearing the different voices and how the different controllers instruct pilots to navigate.  I also am still trying to understand how controllers manage to combine two freq's and 2 separate sectors during off peak periods and split their operations during their local peak periods.  Plus, I don't like the response time from our local flight service guys compared to those from North Bay.  --Jon

Hi

I have been listening to this site for some time now and it has become an invaluable tool in my student pilot training. I am constantly listening to my home airport KFRG (Farmingdale Republic) at work and home.

Listening has helped me greatly in turning a wekaness (talking to ATC) to a strength. I also like to play back the archives to see how I sound.

I tell everyone to use this site as a great learning tool.

Keep up the great work!!

I am glad to see that there are a lot of Student pilots listening. Its one good way to get good at communications. There are more students voting than Commercials and ATPs.

Hi Dave

I'm a plane spotter and listening to the Boston feeds enables me to id planes I haven't seen and add them to my seen log when i see them arrive/depart Boston.

Just found the site not too long ago and fell in love with it...I live right under the PHL approach for 27R so its great to hear the guys (and ladies) overhead talking.

I voted Communications hobbyist because that most closely matches the roots of my listening habit, but it's really the opposite. A long time ago I discovered a spot just beyond the end of 28R at PIT that's ideal for watching air traffic. To enhance the experience, I bought a cheapo Radio Shack radio that had AM, FM, and air band, but it had to be tuned manually. The next step was a scanner.

Along the way, I've flown as an observer with the Civil Air Patrol, done a lot of $100 hamburger flights with a friend that owns a Cessna Cardinal, and married a controller, (so now it's part of dinner table discussion every day here). Student pilot has always been one of those things that's just out of reach, and stiil is.

But truthfully, my initial interest in ATC was to actually *listen* to ATC...

No, at the other end, off the Flaugherty Run Road exit of Bus 60, and down Moon Clinton Road. It's been a couple of years since I was there but there was always a big open space right off the road, just outside the airport fence. Watching the departures off 28R was always good for the bigger jets, but the commuters were always airborne before they got within a mile of you., If they're landing 10L you get to see everybody up close.

With all the construction that's been going on around there recently I don't know if you can still sit there or not.

Working on my private pilots license right now. I plan on going to Delta's Jet Connect Academy when I get out of the Army. I fly online with VATSIM but mostly with WestCoastATC, where I also have an ARTCC. If you're ever around, come check out one of my sessions. I'm KZDV ARTCC Matt. Peace!

PPL but grounded at the mo due to By-Pass operation.

Member of VatSim and KnightAir Virtual airlines.

Very interested in setting up as a Feeder for London HRW. I'm directly under the flight path for 09 EGLL, about 13nm.
But I need to do some studing on the set up, not being a techie. Dave has sent me all the necessary info for setting things up but I need to get a good antenna, diskcone, and another Scanner.  huh
