ATC Frequency List

A place for 'real world' pilots and aviation enthusiasts to discuss their hobby

Postby ardypilot » Sat May 26, 2007 10:45 pm

If its cool Trolly, Ill also keep adding frequencies periodically as needed.

Ive also made one or two amendments to the list.

Yeah KAG- go for it mate. That is the reason I originally posted it here!

I built up that list myself, via e-mails from various pilots and info from www.nzscanners.org.nz

Okidoke, I'm happy to pop it in the main post - when you've confirmed just post here with the say-so. smile.gif

If you get really stuck.. check out www.aip.net.nz

You can go to the aerodrome section and look up any aerodromes frequency (located on the top of the aerodrome operational data page usually).

If you are after terminal area radar, area radar or FISCOM frequency (CH Information as its known as) look up the appropriate section in the ENR (enroute) pages. Note a lot of the non-procedual tower frequencies are not repeated... if you are in a bit of a bad spot you might only be able to pick up airbourne stuff or repeated stuff. Remembering that VHF works ideally on line of site (LOS).

Can't find any NZ ATC on this site: http://www.liveatc.net/

Does anyone know where I can listen online to any New Zealand feeds?

There used to be a few NZ feeds on that website, but they were taken off as it was found they were in breach of the Telecommunications (?) act. To listen into ATC you'd really need to buy a scanner, or borrow one from a friend...

Yeah....and its super dumb they did that. The closest you can get to learning correct NZ terminology (without a scanner) is listening to the Aussie live ATC Feeds.

My Scenery map also has frequencies for airspace (well, it will as soon as I get home and upload the latest files winkyy.gif

It depends on so many factors. The power of the transmitter, the location of the transmitter antenna (many frequencies actually have more than one transmitter site), the position of the receiver, and obstacles between receiver and transmitter are probably the most influential. You can be parked next to an airport listening to the tower and not receive a transmission from the tower if the receiver isn't sited well in your car, for instance. By contrast, with a good antenna in a good geographic location and with the right atmospheric conditions, you might receive the same transmitter many tens of miles away.

Here's a few rules to go by:

Area/Approach control often use hilltop sites, whereas towers generally don't, unless there is major terrain in the area
Towers are often the curse of home scanner enthusiasts because of the previous rule
You'll receive aircraft much further away than any ground station any day, even though their transmit power is considerably lower, due to having a clear line of sight
Area control centers often use multiple transmitter sites, and sometimes even switch between them depending on where the aircraft is they are calling
Many uncontrolled airports have ground stations specifically for IFR clearances either by Christchurch information, or the nearest area control center

I live about 4NM from Palmerston North tower, and I can't get it with a handheld antenna. If I lived in the country, I possibly could at this distance. I can, however, get Ohakea Control very clearly and I'm about 6NM from their hilltop transmitter site. When I lived in the country (25NM from Ohakea's radio) I could receive it fine with just a handheld antenna. PM tower was a little more challenging and required an outdoor antenna installation, but I got it at 10NM. Not a great reception, but readable.

If you give me specific details of where you're trying to listen from and what you're trying to pick up, I could give an idea if its feasible or not. I can get details on the radio equipment used at each of the transmitters (its public information).

Sorry to bump this up guys but I was just wondering if there were any advances with anything lately to listening to ATC or
do we need to take something to the CAA and try get some change for Learning purposes. Id be stoke even if it had a 5min delay or something.

Hey Whirly , all you need is a scanner and you can plug onto any frequency , ideal out on airport outings and even better with your laptop using flight radar .

NZ Law prohibits radio calls being recorded and replayed to third parties. I'm assuming thats why there aren't any sites that provide a direct link to ATC. I agree, it's a valuable learning tool for student pilots and it's a shame there aren't any current facilities. Obviously depending where you live, Ian's idea is great.

It prohibits it provided the party owning/leasing the frequency doesn't consent. IIRC Airways manage it and they've had all the previous streams taken down. Why? No idea, doesn't make sense to me. It's hardly a security issue.

Hmm shame about the law.

So whats flight radar? sounds like fun...
How many NM away from NZTG do you reckon you could pick it up?
I live in the Matua area and it would be almost line of sight roughly with a small rise...

Regular used and track alsorts , but is limited due to many aircraft not having the transponder/radio equip http://www.flightradar24.com/
