Where / When Do You Listen To ATC?

Tue Dec 20, 2005 2:54 am

I'm a big fan of liveatc.net. It helps me perfect my own skills on the radio, and is a nice hobby related activity to have in the background. With when I work, the graveyard shift, it gives me the ability to listen to it while at my computer at work. I was curious when and where other fellow a.netters listen to live ATC? If you do listen, what airport are you usually tuned to? For myself, I'm normally tuned to Boston Tower or JFK Approach.

Ok, wait for the RJ to pass, cleared to push tail south Mike, and you're cleared to spin #2 in the push.

I love liveatc.net. I listen to it all of the time. I hope to be an ATC in the near future and it really helps me with my phraseology. My favorites to listen to are MSP tower, DTW tower, and HNL tower.

I have a portable VHF radio which I tune to Seattle Approach or Seattle Tower when in the car. Plus, I don't have a radio in my car.

I usually listen to my scanner when I am sitting at home or near an airport. Obviosuly, I usually tend to tune in when I am in the air at the controls! However, I find that when listenting to the proffesional pilot's talking, they add a whole bunch on nonsense which is not encouraged by many flying school. Some examples of what pilot's say are: "Good day, sir", "Okay, were gonna head over to a heading of xyz and you have yourself a good night sir", etc.

I often listen at work to pilots since I am also a voice in Houston.....or listen when flying since my peers don't pick me out from the other side of the mic, that makes for some fun with clearances and such.  Smile

I don't see anything wrong with that. So long as they're not monopolizing the radio, there's nothing wrong with a little extra politeness.

I usually listen to EIDW or Boston Tower on LiveATC.Net. The reception on both of those frequencies is excellent.

At home with my scanner, quite often.
I can hear Incheon Airport Tower which is about 55kms away, Gimpo Airport tower which is about 20kms away from here, plus Seoul App, Dep etc very clearly.
I wish I could also get ACARS messages (I've only gotten one, with so many attempts), but I think something is interfering with the signals when it is linked with the audio cable.

I usually listen to my scanner late at night - after wife & kids have gone off to sleep. Any other time -there's too much noise at home, and I can't really enjoy it so much. I especially love listening to the (few) international flights we get in BLR - LH/ AF/ BA/ UL/ GF/ TG/ SQ/ MH/ AI - I try to catch a couple of those each time I listen in.
