Great setup! What kind of USB audio converter(blue box) used on KACY feed? Mind sharing with some technical info?




We generally use one of the two audio interfaces on feeds that LiveATC helps with:


We also use the Griffin iMic - available from various sources.

One reason is that these cards have a proper Line In interface which presents the proper impedance to a scanner's audio output.  The other reason is that these cards have tested out pretty well in audio quality tests.

The cheap $1USD audio interfaces that exist can be made to work - you just have to either very tightly control the scanner volume so as not to overdrive them or provide your own impedance matching network so as not to overdrive the mic level input of those cards.

We don't know but are working on it.

Ok, just ordered the adapter. RadioShack had free 2 day shipping, so it should be here soon. I'm done with this semester of college, so now I have no excuses for the next month or so. I WILL get this done.

The KTVC feed is broadcasting only an automated observation weather station. Cannot hear anything else.

I just installed the new tower frequencies for KHDC (Hammond, LA).
They are 120.575 Tower
and 119.850 Ground.
I will email Dave the new information soon so he can change the
descriptions on the website.

You guys are the best.  Though I'm a tight budget I did make a tiny donation. Thank you

On this particular route, which seems to be the most common one used between JFK and POP ...

After New York Departure on 135.90 they will be handed off to New York Center on 128.30, then to New York Center on 133.50, then to New York Center on 126.02.

These 3 New York Center frequencies are covered by the "ZBW/ZNY/ZDC (JFK Area) #3" Live ATC radio. The handoff to 126.02 takes place as the aircraft approaches the LEXAD waypoint, which is pushing the limits of this radios range. 133.50 is also covered by the "ZNY ATL86/ZDC SIE54" radio and you can sometimes hear the handoff to 126.02 but won't hear anything south of LEXAD.

On this route via LEXAD.L453 the HF frequency assignment will be given by New York Center on 126.02 and not by ARINC in this case. There are no Live ATC radios with coverage of 126.02 in that area yet. (A radio covering New York on 126.02 would make a great feed as it covers the handoffs to the eastern Caribbean HF frequencies and would compliment the 129.90 ARINC feed mentioned above).

The New York Radio (ARINC) HF frequency will vary but 11396, 8918, 5550 are commonly used on L453. All 3 frequencies are covered by Live ATC radios (search the frequency to get the link). The first call will be over PAEPR, compulsory reporting waypoints on L453 are PAEPR, ONGOT, BOREX, LAMER. 

The aircraft will switch back to VHF over the LAMER waypoint to Miami Center on 135.20, then to Miami 132.30, then to Santo Domingo on 124.30, then to Puerto Plata Approach on 119.00, then to Puerto Plata Tower 118.00. There are no Live ATC radios I'm aware of with coverage of Miami Center in this area, there is/was one that coverd Santo Domingo but it seems to be down lately. (Search SDQ).

We submitted a fix for this last Sunday.  We are still waiting for Apple to approve and release the version that fixes the iOS 6 and 7 issues.  At this point it is out of our hands...we are on day 3 or 4 of waiting for them and we've tried unsuccessfully so far to expedite their review process.

When will the iPhone problem be corrected?  Since loading the update my app has been down for several days.  Please don't upload any updates without testing it first.
