The link just pauses/freezes.

I had a quick listen today at 1310 UTC and noticed the same thing, freezes, skipping. Sounds like an internet connection, buffering problem ?

However if you download the archive from the same time it sounds fine.

It is bad in the mornings through noon... tends to get better as the day goes on. Morning sounds like multiple voices trying to come through, screeching/electrical glitch, and what I can only describe as "warped" sounds, and just dead air. The link just pauses/freezes. Oh well. There's plenty of other great channels to listen to, including arrivals/departures. Thanks for the links!

Been a while since I posted here, but I just noticed I don't seem to be picking up the ground side too good right now. Does anyone know how long it's been like that? I can't remember if I tried the antenna in all possible positions or not. I wonder if rotating it would make that much of a difference? I really want to get a second antenna and 3rd scanner to split up ZNY/KWRI feed. Does anyone have any suggestions for the best antenna to pick up the ZNY and KWRI frequencies?

On another note, if you notice problems with the feed, please try to send me a PM or reply to this thread, because I don't check this forum all that frequently. I do check my emails regularly, so the email notification will tell me there's something wrong, and I'll get back to fixing it ASAP.

Rotating that antenna is unlikely to do much of anything, John.  The issue is more likely a local noise level issue - something that could take a lot of debugging and that may not be easy to cure.  It could also be a change in setup on the base station (ATC) end.  They've been revamping a lot of equipment - and depending on a number of factors it could have made things more marginal.  If I recall that signal was right on the edge anyway.

From this vantage point it is all guessing.  Those broadband antennas are not ideal for optima ATC reception.  Better to use one tuned for VHF airband - but even that is no guarantee of picking up any particular ground station.  It's all about stacking the odds in your favor.

For the last week the New York TRACON has been using 125.850 in place of 124.750 in the Liberty South Departure sector. This sector is covered on LiveATC. First time I've heard 125.850 used by New York. Anyone know if this is a new backup frequency or maybe a permanent replacement for 124.750 ?

Not sure.  I'll look into it.

Thank you both. That's how it sounds to me...garbled, strange static, and at time sounds like multiple voices/info is trying to come through. It can be clear for times as long as an hour, then go back to hard to listen to. Just an FYI, I am a writer/author and all I do is sit at my computer, write, and listen to ATC... one heck of a plane nerd, yeah. First step is admitting it, right? rolleyes

I noticed this listening to Twr and App earlier in the week, but can't find any issue with my gear. Sounds more like packets of audio from another channel getting on it. Listening to it now on my phone and it sounds okay, but other feeds have little or no traffic at this hour. I'll check it again tomorrow when its busy again.
