Just thought of this just a few moments ago. I was watching the numbers for the Philly feeds and was wondering who was listening. Basically just post the area you live in 'Not exact town if you feel uncomfortable' then post your favorite feed to listen to and some reasons why you like listening to it. I simply want to know if people that listen to the feeds more or less live close to the airport that they like to listen to or if they come from all over, and I would like to hear the reasons why people like a certain feed.

I'll start, obviously I live in Philly. My favorite feeds are both of the PHL feeds but primarily the Tracon feed. I like the Philly feeds because I learned the operations/ vectors by listening to just traffic off my scanner prior to the feeds being put up, so now I can finally hear the controllers. I love to listen alot because I know alot of controllers down there and like to hear them. And as for the Tracon being my favorite feed, just that I like Final Approach sector operations and pure radar operations in general

You don't have to write as much as me, but let's hear from ya.....

FYI...

The PHL feeds are actually sponsored by a private donor of equipment.
The equipment lives right at KPHL...two scanners and a Linux box with two sound cards.

I like listening to the Boston feeds because I know a guy in the tower and at Massport.  I think the best times are during snow storms when the controllers are really showing us their expertise.  I try to find the planes on passur after I hear them on the feed.  I realize the delay but it usually isn't too hard.  Thanks Dave for running this fantastic site!

Milwaukee  Cool

Becasue of all the IFR practice approaches at Kenosha, Racine, and Waukesha.

Between 0800-2200 lcl there is never a dull moment on the departure frequencies as they handle the class D/G approaches

love the INDY feed unfortunately it is down untill who knows when. Loved it cause i woulh hear certain NY area flights way out west before entering either cle airspace and flights going into the Potomac tracon also as well as the dubuque feed at times. I love my HIGH LEVEL listening to ARTCC.Airport wise is anybody just to get an idea of frequencies used in certain areas that either milair,freq of nature,microvolt radio have either not on their list or inaccuracies listed. I have all my NACO charts at home and all afd's of everything east of the miss river as well as all ARTCC sector maps(been listening since i was 10 years old and I am now 40)

Any feed that has a line of strong thunderstorms or snowstorm about to move into the region.  Smiley    I first check the US national radar, then locate the closest feed to the strong storms.

Over the last few weeks or so I have been listening to Syracuse, Detroit, NY, and Boston, all just before a strong line moved over their airports.

"Attention all aircraft, microburst alert, plus 38 knots, three miles off the approach end of runway 15.  Winds at the airport now 25 kts peak gusts 57."

"Approach, Northwest XXX, diverting to Cleveland."

Good stuff.

Why, JFK of course. I like tracking flights with AirNav, and since I live in Dutchess County, obviously I can't hear the tower down there, so I listen to the feed and wait until the traffic is passed to NY Center. I can hear Huguenot up, both sides, up here. Plus, I track when the aircraft use ACARS. Then I wait for HF... Cheesy

Boston Clearance and Ground is my favorite feed.  The controllers at Boston are great and the pilots are always on their toes.

All the Boston feeds, they are crisp, clear, and busy.  

Detroit is another one I like, great quality; busy.  Same goes for CVG, though a strictly ramp/ground/tower feed would be plenty busy and easier to follow.

My favorite is Toronto Center during off peak periods, because the repeaters are merged (if that's the right term) so I can monitor the traffic over souther locations south me, where I don't get that opportunity during peak periods.  During the overnight, I like Montreal ACC since I can hear the 2 minute long oceanic clearances.
