Still planing on making the antennae adjustment if it ever warms up here on the east coast! I will be sure to update this thread then.

The KSQL archive files seem to be silent.

Edited for space. King Air 50VP departure from KFSD in Sioux Falls, SD on 2-25-2015 at about 1918GMT returns for emergency landing due to shattered windshield. Stereo feed so Approach/Departure on left, Tower and Center on right. Then, separated radio traffic also edited. Traffic inbound re-sequenced. Emergency vehicles sent to aircraft off runaway. No injuries reported.

Maybe if the FAA weren't so hard up about going after GA pilots and investigating every emergency declaration with a view towards license suspension, GA pilots would be less reluctant about declaring.

I declared a pan pan once for a stuck gear (turns out the emergency gear lever got displaced preventing the gear from retracting), got a call from the fsdo the following day wanting to check my maintenance records.

Wow, back up now! Hooray!  I think 10 hours might be the longest outage for this feed in a very long time. Overall a very high quality service guys. I paid for the Android app and am very pleased with it.

Unrelated note... this situation made me think back to other threads (and what seems to be a bit of a pattern) of declaring/handling emergencies by ATPs vs. GA pilots.

The ATPs seem quick on jumping to emergency declarations and shedding workloads. Rather than attempt to juggle comms, the FO here milked ATC for as much assistance as was needed - from a METAR readout to a phone call to his own company to relay the nature of the situation.

Contrast that to some (many?) GA pilots who seem reluctant to use or even convey the dreaded "E" word - emergency - over the air. It's almost as if some (many?) of them think declaring an emergency equates to "I've already exhausted all possible options I can think of, leaving me at the end of my rope and desperately in need of ATC's divine intervention."

Perhaps this is just a biased observation based on too small a sample size?
