Thanks for the compliment.  I just added a photo of my antenna set-up to the original post.  I have several antennas to choose from with a RF patch panel in the radio room.  Both scanner feeds are  connected into a Stridesburg splitter/amplifer, and are usually connected to the dual band VHF/UHF Arrow J-pole antenna mounted at the top of the 40 foot antenna mast on the rear of the house.  Other antennas I could use  include a commercial grade wide-band dual dipole array, a commercial grade wide-band single dipole, a multi-band scanner antenna in the attic.  There are also three HF antennas.   All of the antennas terminate into commercial grade surge protectors which are mounted to a ground bar in the basement radio room.  A ground rod is driven right through the basement floor into the soil beneath, so it requires a very short ground cable.  The 40 foot antenna mast also has its own ground rod.  And then those two ground rods are also bonded to my electric service ground.  Its pretty well protected.  All radio and computer equipment runs off either a 1200 VA UPS or a 12 volt 50 amp Astron power supply with 100 Amp-hour battery backup.  Internet service is via Verizon Fios (50 Mbps fiber optic cable feed) with battery backup on the fiber to cable converter also.   I also have an emergency generator for long-term power outages.  My only problem is that I'm not close enough to any of the six airports I cover to hear the ground stations.

Nice clip. For those interested:


"A Southwest Airlines Boeing 737-700, flight WN-1704 from Sacramento,CA to Burbank,CA (USA), was on final approach to Burbank's runway 08 when the crew initiated a go-around from about 2000 feet reporting a mechanical problem. The aircraft climbed to 6000 feet and entered a hold to work the checklists. About 15 minutes later the crew advised they had flaps problems and needed the longer runway at Los Angeles International. The aircraft landed safely on Los Angeles' runway 24R at a higher than normal speed (about 174 knots over ground) about 25 minutes after going around."

Awesome setup! Thanks for the feed. What's your antenna setup like?

Here's a pic of my radio setup at my home in Hopkinton, RI.   I'm streaming  two feeds from here.  
1. The Uniden Bearcat 895XLT is the source for the RI Area Misc/USCG feed on LiveATC.net.  
2. The Uniden Bearcat 780XLT is the source for the Southern RI and SE CT Fire & EMS  feed on Broadcastify.com.
There are also three HF radios,  two VHF/UHF amateur radios, and one additional Pro-61 scanner.

AV Herald article (here) even notes the following:

EDIT: Disregard; the AV Herald article does indeed claim that a right engine fire EICAS message was posted.

EDIT2: Well, actually, the article claims that the airliner's report contradicts with its (other?) source of information:

the crew reported a fire indication for the right hand engine
The airline reported the crew received an overheat indication for the right hand engine.

Anyone have the audio of these incidents? Crazy that they landed back to back.

Any idea what the conditions were at the time of landing?  Curious what the visibility was & what time of day it was.  

Just hard to imagine this happening especially since the taxiway isn't even parallel to the runway they were cleared for -- and even worse if that was indeed an instructor on board (I couldn't tell for sure but it sounded like it may have been, at least towards the end of the recording).

Man, that'd be hard to live down, but am seriously not sure how a mistake like that happens outside of (very) adverse conditions/visibility or similar.

I suppose that's not the quietest airspace but am still a bit surprised that the controller didn't notice where they were earlier in the approach, and realize that they weren't even close to being where they'd need to be for a proper approach to 28L or 28R...  Definitely not saying it's the controller's fault by any means, just interesting / thinking out loud.  Glad it didn't turn into something far more serious.

SWA1704 was on final approach to KBUR when it diverted to KLAX because of a flap problem.  Audio attached...
