For all that do not know, there is a great website that you can listen to live ATC from different airports around the world. From Dubai to Traverse City (My feed ) . This website is looking for more feeds, and it would be great, if you live near an airport to set one up. It is so simple, and the webmaster is very prompt in answering any questions you might have. The more the better.

Yep, this ATC live stuff has been around for quite sometime. I wish that all of the more popular airports would add their ATC in, as most of it is voluntary. It does take some money as it requires a server with decent bandwidth to broadcast (duh), air-band scanning equipment, and streaming software like HelixDNA by RealNetworks (RealPlayer) to compress, deliver, and stream the audio. Even though the audio stream doesnt require you to have a fast connection the RealNetworks streaming software itself, isn't really cheap, and with the amount of popularity a lot of these streaming audio sites take, the bandwidth fills up quite fast. I really like listening to Dallas Fort Worth ATC (http://www.simuflite.com) and O'Hare ATC (http://www.cyberair.com) and of course the local traffic here in Honolulu.
I was thinking about making a small (very limited bandwidth) Real Audio streaming broadcast of the Honolulu ATC airspace, containing HNL Intl, Kalealoa Airport, and it's approach sectors. As I live on a mountain on the west side of Oahu and get great reception of a lot of the local and center frequencies. Only problem is the streaming software is quite expensive and I'm not sure if you need FAA approval to broadcast ATC streams over the net. Maybe I'll just email and ask some current ATC broadcasters....
London Gatwick is the busiest single runway airport in the world, the second largest airport in the UK and the sixth busiest international airport in the world. Its development strategy for the future focuses on the airport's expansion as a single runway, two terminal airport, as it grows to handle around 40 million passengers a year by 2010/2011.

JFK Tower has been my background music for about a month now. Dave Schoen is great.
Ground delays at JFK make for some great humor on the radio. During a massive (and very stressful) delay, a controller joked that out of complete jealousy and spite, he wouldn't let a flight to Bermuda leave.
7 billion, one nation, imagination...it's a beautiful day
