Yeah I'm very close. Get great views of the 24's and it can get very noisy if the wind is heading this way. I often hear the 777's starting up and don't get met started on the Morningstar flights at 3am Wink

I'd be very interested in a feed. I only have a Maycom AR-108 right now and even with a small external antenna it isn't the same excellent quality as the current YYZ feed (not sure if its the radio, antenna or those powerlines). I'll take a look around on ebay for a better radio and another visit to RadioWorld and maybe get a bigger antenna on the balcony. SOmething for the weekend.

If you have any recommendations on radios please share. I run a server from home, so feeding isn't a problem.

Cool.. my only spare radio is being used to feed YKZ at the moment (which is down Sad ). I've had pretty good success with ebay. Do a search on the forums for my posts and you'll see some of the issues I had finding a good radio.

One thing you could possibly feed instead is Toronto Centre. Since, for some reason, the current feed has YYZ tower bleeding into it all the time.

Actually I'm closer to Yonge/Davisville. I lived for a spell Broadway/Mt. Pleasant.

Toronto needed a power wash.

To get a scale of how close that was to YYZ, I've outlined Maple on this map.



For those who aren't familiar with the area, if you take a look at that map, one tornado touched down at Jane and Major Mac (Jane is the north-south street which is the first one east of Highway 400 and Major Mac is the east-west street that is mainly in that circle. Another touched down at Highway 7 and Martin Grove (Highway 7 is labeled and Martin Grove is just east of the 427).

Delta, you're pretty close! You can even see the tower.

Do you think you'd be willing to provide a feed? To help ease the congestion on the current YYZ feeder?

I'd be more than glad to help!

OK so I went to my favourite Radio Store on Steeles and picked up a BC350C and compared to the AR-108 its night and day! I'm going to drop a note to the admins to get the software and configuration instructions (hoping it will run on Windows 7 or at least XP in compatability mode).

I would be curious as to which CYYZ feeds people would prefer to separate to ease congestion?

Please feel free to contact me. I have been waiting for someone closer to take over both feeds from me for a while now. I have a bc350c that goes along with it and an outdoor antenna. Maybe some other stuff if needed.

Just wondering if you guys got a hold of each other?

Yes we did and a plan is underway. Watch this space Smiley

FYI: There is currently an additional feed for CYYZ that does tower and departures only. Change will likely happen on Friday/Saturday and I'll post and update.
