Got a new yagi built for klex 1 feed. I can hear aircraft on the ground at Klex from 5 miles away. Crystal clear quality! This is a SUPER antenna! Should be live soon!

Does the LHBP Control coverage cover all the high traffic?

It varies depending on how the sectors are configured. When it's slow all altitudes are covered, then as traffic increases the airspace is split vertically by altitude as required. The radio is covering the low altitude frequencies so during peak times you are usually only hearing traffic at FL340 and below (varies). Also you can not always hear the west side controller on 133.20, must use different transmitter sites.

Personally I would not add any more frequencies to the present setup, it gets extremely busy at times and would just be too congested. The way it is set up now works well because the frequencies monitored by the radio will automatically adjust as the sectors are reconfigured as required by the amount of traffic. (all frequencies are cross coupled so you can hear the aircraft even though the radio is not monitoring that actual frequency). A better solution would be to wait for another radio dedicated to some of the higher altitude frequencies. IMO.

The last time I checked the channel setup looked like this.

West Sectors

132.300 = FL320 and below
128.105 = FL330 to FL340
127.105 = FL350 to FL360
132.055 = FL370 to FL380
135.205 = FL390 and above

East Sectors

120.375 = FL320 and below
128.955 = FL330 to FL340
135.555 = FL350 to FL360
136.380 = FL370 to FL380
132.790 = FL390 and above

Backup frequencies

130.575
133.535

By noting cruising altitudes or handoffs of climbing and descending traffic you can determine what vertical configuration the controller is using. The slow time when all altitudes are covered is usually between 22 and 03 UTC.

Thanks to the volunteers who set up the radios. If more radios can be added to cover the higher sectors I would be happy to donate to help.

Attached below is a sector map I put together of the area (must be logged into forum to see it)



Great info, thank you! I wonder if the same could be expanded for The Czech Republic. LKPR High feed. I see the high sector feed but a lot of traffic is not being covered, during the busy times in the day.

Hi, thanks for your humor question. I guess something may be wrong with the Guam feeds just since I couldn't notice part of them. The status of the feeds is down.

Ahh.. I see now. Last time I checked on that feed was a couple of months ago. Checking on it now, I see that one feed (Ground/Ramp/Tower) is down, The PGUM Tower feed is up, and the third feed (Ground/Tower/App/Center, also covering PGUA: Andersen AFB) is down. So you should at lesat be able to listen to Tower. Dave may be able to get hold of the providers there to see what's going on, as the two feeds that are down went down roughly 1 minute apart from each other.

BL.

10-AUG-16
Time: 17:37:00Z
Regis#: N738PC
Aircraft Make: CESSNA
Aircraft Model: 172

Aircraft on landing went off the end of the runway, through a fence and onto a road. San Jose, CA. Amazingly, no injury and minor damage to the aircraft.
 
More info and a picture here

Does the LHBP Control coverage cover all the high traffic? I am not hearing a lot of overflight traffic mainly the northeast. The usual routes from Romania through Hungary to Slovakia. Also I do not hear some traffic on the southwest of the country coming from Austria. Just wondering if these are different sectors and if they could be added to get full coverage. Thank you.

LROP Bucharest Twr/App lists Radar/Center frequencies but I am not hearing them. I am hearing tower on the left speaker.

Does anyone have information regarding the KSUS feed?  The volume level is so low I can barely hear it with my phone volume on maximum.
Also, I no longer hear the tower frequency, only ground.
TIA
