I was wondering with all this new GPS tracking flights and nav

How will this affect ATC voice communication

Back in 2000 there was a push for VDL mode 3
Digital voice from what we use know. In 2003 a test was done on the new radio system and in 2004 it was cancelled by the FAA. The airline community was not going for it!!

AM voice mode is more effective then digital voice mode as stated by the FCC

What is everyone's opinions on this subject??

KEWR would NOT have your IFR flight plan on file at their tower. If you call up EWR while parked at LDJ, they would tell you to contact New York Approach and give you the designated frequency. N90 would be the only one's that would have your IFR strip. In short, no.

This is a bad idea. We are controllers, not meteorologists or weather observers. It is our job to keep airplanes from hitting each other, not to predict what the clouds will do in 45 minutes. It is yet another duty they are requiring us to take on. It is an additional distraction in the operational environment. At my facility, there are times when we get so busy, nobody has the time to take the current observation until well past the hour. Why should we be held liable for erroneous information that serves as a secondary purpose to our job description? It's like asking your mechanic to operate on you.

It is a fruitless effort for us employees to tell management how bad this is. Even the ATM is powerless to stop this from happening. It is up to the users of the system to squawk to the FAA about this plan. It is you, the pilots, that are able to get things done quicker and more efficiently than those of us that work for them. That is a fact. WE have this new RNAV approach being designed into our airport. The pilots requested the FAA develop one, within a few days, preliminary approach plates were designed. It was flight tested just a few weeks ago, and is expected to be fully implemented within the next year or so. If that was one of us requesting it, it would have been tossed in the trash heap. It is truly up to the users of the NAS to convince the FAA this is a terrible idea.

I am a controller and I will spread this around to our union and friends I have out that way.

Audio file provided in response to a request by Craighton in the Aviation Accidents/Incidents forum.
Brake over-heating warning.

Does anyone have any information or the audio on a Delta CRJ landing/taking off at KGEG on Saturday November 21st at around 1:50PM?

This audio proved a little difficult to track down, Craighton. Your link to flight SKW4758 was a red-herring in that that flight had landed pretty well on time without incident at about 8.45am. Then I noticed you said you witnessed the incident at about 1.50PM. With that information to hand I was able to locate the relevant audio files in the LiveATC archives. I am about to post a trimmed version of the audio in the relevant forum.
The incident actually involved an aborted take off due to a brake overheating warning.

@Brad G. I just want to be clear that I wasn't making the assumption that it IAS = GS. I just found that in this case, it seemed eerily similar.

To be noted.. I'm not a pilot nor an aviation expert. I'm simply an aviation enthusiast like many others on here. I find pulling in a huge amount of data from sources like flight aware, witness reports, and also historical information extremely interesting. Having all of this raw data will allow experts and aviation professionals to derive actionable insights to clear the path to a safer future of aviation.

One of the frequencies covered by einn_high feed always has a pretty bad reception.

Is it Shanwick Radio (124.175)?

If yes - any chance for improvement? I recall that several months ago I could hear aircraft after handoff to this freq pretty well, so it's probably some hardware / tuning problem.

Can't find Turkish ATC-to-Su-24; but for anyone interested here is the Turkish Air Force air-to-air "on guard" with the Russian aircraft.
