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.)

I think I have it back up. A new flash card for RaspPi B, write image using physdiskwrite. (GUI didn't work -- used command line OK.) Then follow instructions here:
http://www.t3node.com/blog/live-streaming-mp3-audio-with-darkice-and-icecast2-on-raspberry-pi/

My audio input is a behringer UCA-222 (~US$30), which shows up as hw:1,0 for the darkice config file.

I should really duplicate that flash card and tape it to the bottom of the RaspPi case so that I have a spare. My UPS held out for two hours, but the RaspPi crashed and ate the flash card because I don't have it set up for a graceful shutdown. (NUT for RP?)

My KDCA feed will be down for another day. Pepco's last outage resulted an a flash drive on the raspberry that won't boot. I'll be rebuilding.

$100 on the way: I have now been using this site for almost 10 full years (I remember my first nights listening to NY Approach back in January, 2005). Thank you for ten years of entertainment!
