I remember a post a while back, about listening in to the ATC at the local airport. I can't seem to find that post. Would anyone be able to provide a link for me?

You can actually understand them.

Thanks Radarman Cheers!

It is easy to understand them Thumbs Up!

BTW - Is it possible to get my local airport (KAVP) on a police/fire scanner?

Try Radio Shack and ask if they can get it on a hand scanner, if so let them demonstrate then buy it. It's up to them to prove the worth of their merchandise to you if they want to sell it.

I thought you might like these sites.

Is that taped live or actually live? I found this site one time and I got to listen to O'Hare tower. That was taped live.

I think they said that it was a 5 minute delay, probably safety or government rules.

The link is working for me. Did you try a cut and paste?

You might also want to track the flight too. A couple of sites:

The link is getting truncated when I post the reply. After liveatc.net it should read /feedindex.php

Amazing. It's cutting it off even when I type the alst part of the address. I guess there's something the site doesn't like about f e e d i n d e x . p h p.

Radarman, I know nothing about scanners, but if I got a code for Andrews AFB, would I be able to hear the transmissions? Also, is it possible to get Air Force One's frequency?

Thanks again!

Two good questions.
I don't think they would let you eavesdrop on a military base ATC and as for AF1, I bet that's scrambled.

I base this on nothing but gut feelings, it would be interesting to find out.

Thanks a lot Radarman Cheers!

I found a ferquency for Andrews on AirNav, so it's worth a try. Very Happy

I'd be curious to see if they have AF1 ATC live so you could listen.

Re: Air Force One commo, I would guess that the routine ATC communications are not encoded since they have to communicate with so many different stations as they fly. However, as a military aircraft, I would also guess they use military UHF frequencies rather than the VHF frequencies assigned for civilian use with ATC. I'm not expert on scanner technology but I think to monitor military frequencies, you have to have a scanner that covers the UHF spectrum.

For non-ATC commo, I strongly suspect those are encoded.

Thanks Don Cheers!

Radarman, do the scanners have a long-distance range? Would I even be able to get Andrews from Pennsylvania?

Pro Member Chief Captain

I'm just guessing but I bet that scanners like this can only get local broadcasts.
You may however be able to (with an antenna) and knowing what "channel" to zero in on get distance broadcasts.
I used to have a nice short wave radio that with an antenna get stations all over the world plus local gab from the police, atc etc.

You can probably get better scanners at pilot supply stores, look them over and see if you can get it on the net much cheaper.

Interesting point Don. I never thought of that.
