For the 2nd year running, you will be able to listen online to the Air Show at Jones Beach at w2lie.net

The feed will start on Tuesday, May 22nd - so that you may hear the Thunderbirds come into Republic Airport.

I will be posting the frequencies that I will be scanning for the air show some time this week. If you know of any good frequencies, please let me know.

I will also be archiving the audio from the air show, and hope to put it online when I get a chance.

Thanks for the hard work you put into the "Live From Jones Beach" Air Show Phil. It's a special treat for those of us that can not make it to the show.

These are the frequencies I used in a Uniden BC250 back in 2005, the last time the T-Birds were in for the Air Show. (Last year it was the Blue Angels)

I am sorry I don't have any descriptions of what each frequency was used for, but maybe someone can build on it.

I do have it in ARC250 format for those of you with a BC250 or BC785. This year I will probably migrate them over to my Pro-96 using WIN96 or I might use a Pro-97 with ScanCat lite.... I also have a BC396T, but I am a bit skeptical about taking a $500+ scanner to the beach...so on second though.... I guess I will use the Pro-97 this time around.

Thanks for the list, Big Ed. Maybe I'll see you down there....

Here is the list of freqs that I will be scanning and streaming online.
(Sorry for the way the tables look, there has to be a bug in the website, because I can't get tables to render correctly!!)

Anyway, here is the link, or you can also grab it from the main NAV menu under Frequencies/Codes

Yes Scott, the Feed isn't up yet. I didn't finish setting everything up until 2am last night. I wanted to make sure I had a good few hours to listen to it in the morning before I put it public....

 I set the feed to auto start at 9am. hopefully in 5 minutes you'll see the feed come up.

I still need to clean up the alpha tags.. Not all of them are registering. I'll work on that tonight.

You can check the feed status here -> [link] Or via the NAV menu above.. by clicking Listen Live -> Live Feed Info -> Feed Stats/What's On
