Runway Use In AMS

Greetings.
I need a small help with Amsterdam airport. I'm heading there for spotting (photos and if possible some videos), but I'm a bit lost about runway usage.
Can anyone help me about landings and take offs?
Do they use all runways at the same time, or one is dedicated just to landings and other for take off, or there is no patterns here and I can see for example landings in all rwys at the same time?
Another question, please. Which rwy is most of the time used by freighters?
Thanks a lot in advance.

Oh...and Eyjafjallajoekull if you're reading this...give me a break, will you?

Hi.
Sorry mate, but perhaps I didn't explain it well. It's not the weather or the wind. That I can see just by spitting on my index finger.
What I mean is this. Let's say the wind is for the 18's. What do they normally do? Land on 18R and take off on 18C and do nothing on 18L or instead they split the traffic for the three rwys depending on whatever is more convenient?
Is there any pattern there?
Thanks

I've got a little diagram explaining most common runway use at schipholspotter.com. But from time to time ATC can be completely random so it's only a rough guide.

Ok...ok...now I'm getting there. Tell me something. A scanner help would help here. Is it ok to use one? Where is traffic divided? on the approach frequency (121,200)?
Peter, my congratulations on the schipolspotter website. Very useful and I've been checking it for my homework    I'm sure many of my photos will come from that precious help.

No problem to use a scanner. There are frequences on my site as well. I don't know when the traffic is divided as I don't have a scanner myself. Maybe someone else can help you with that. The forums at scramble.nl are always a good start.

And it's a fair bet to say that 18L/36R and 06/24 are always in use.

Oops, make that 18R/36L and 06/24.

Today for example, AMS used;

in the morning

Arrival 18R and departures 24 and 18L (outbound peak)
changed to
Arrival 18R and 27, departures 24 (inbound peak) (but you might more common see 18R/18C + 24)
Later changed to
Arrivals on 27 and 36C, departures 36L
changed to
Arrival 27, departures 36L and 24

Next week, runway 18L/36R will be out of usage to construction works. So expect 18C/36C to be in use more often then usual.
