It's not as easy as it looks.  Here is the FAA documentation.  Also, you might be mistaken about when a flight plan is required.

I wonder if anyone (ATC Controller/Pilot) knows whether you require ATC permission to trail an advertising banner behind a light aircraft? Obviously a flight plan has to be submitted to ATC for the flight, but the banner?

Thanks grin

Moved KAFW feed from my home 8.5 miles from the field to a friend's home overlooking the airfield.  Also switched over to a Raspberry Pi with two Griffin iMics sent fully configured (thanks, Dave!).

Revised setup has a stereo feed with KAFW tower in the left ear/speaker and Regional Approach/Departure in the right ear/speaker, as well as independent mono feeds of each (thanks to some scripting magic on the LiveATC server side).

Clearance Delivery and Ground are also covered.

Also hosted from this location is a discreet 52F (Northwest Regional) frequency.  52F is just outside the class D to the Northeast of KAFW, and is a very busy general aviation field under the DFW Class B shelf.  Traffic departing / arriving 52F often contacts KAFW's tower for transit of the Class D.

EKCH will be available in the future - just can't provide a date at this time.

I am wondering if EKCH will be available sometime. It is one of my favorite airports.

If not can EKBI or ESMS be expanded to include the approach/dep freq for EKCH

Thank you

Reviving an old thread here, but any chance of getting the TWR feeds from ESSP or ESKN?

Thank you for your answer about my question.

actually, i'm not pilot and i'm student who study ATC and not english native but i'am deeply moved by your kind answer in spite of my low quality english.

and as i wondered about this "if some vfr traffic suddenly contact RAPCON and request IFR clearance and radar vector due to weather, can RAPCON issue ifr clearance to vfr traffic?" in nonradar situation, What term should controller use?

you said "Cleared fix..." is radar vector, and if aircraft should go some fix to join airway, What term should controller use?

like "proceed fix"..?

i want to get your answer about my question, thanks.

Anything else that can be done?
Squawk 7600 and follow the relevant FARs for lost communications procedures.

Can pilots use mobile phones to contact ATC?
Sure, why not? Probably depends on the phase of flight, though... hard to get reception when you're many thousands of feet above the nearest cell tower.

If yes, would that be dangerous? All passengers are asked to switch off their mobile phones!
Not anymore, they aren't. (And for good reason... I never did look it up, but I can't really imagine why it would matter; the most you're probably going to be able to do with a cell phone to disrupt operations in an airplane is either a) using it as a blunt object to smash out a window, or b) hold it next to a DG/compass and deflect it a few degrees temporarily.)
