For many months i have been tracking the tower traffic at the local Regional Airport CYKF under www.ykf.ca using iTunes

I have not been able to connect for the last week or so altho I can still hear CYZZ or Toronto Central as well as Boston ATC

The only thing different is perhaps an upgrade of iTunes which as you know has gone up and down like the proverbial toilet seat .

I cannot understand why Toronto and Boston still work but ykf kitchener does a barber poll connect but never completes it . Both other sites show the barber poll and then connect within seconds

Any idea "ykf says site under construction" or behind a firewall as reasons but nothing has changed at my end

Nice little feed.

I have been listening to it all weekend and then some.
I am not having any problems at all with the feed.

I prefer listening to the Police/Fire Scanner Feed.
(It is a crazy world out there)

Nice link, works like a charm.
999, possible 949, Negative C-N-I, 10-6, 10-4 :lmao:

I did get the sorry message too but looked a little further and found a Radio link labeled.

ykf.ca

Try this:

iTunes > Advanced > Open Stream... > http://72.143.98.151:8000/cykf > OK

I have also used this link in the program VLC

VLC > Open Network ... > HTML > http://72.143.98.151:8000/cykf > OK
Thanks Dave the first one worked perfectly but I cannot seem to get >HTML on the path you have indicated for VCL
I also had the ykf.ca radio link ....actually that is the one I was using in iTunes

Try this:

http://www.liveatc.net/feedindex.php?type=canada

Lots of Canadian streams there. That site also has US-ian ones as well.

Good luck,

Miguel
Thanks but the cykf link shown results in nothing happening and then a Quick time logo with a ? over it both dimmed.

I was able to get connected with iTunes advanced with the url Dave provided in his previous message.

Thanks for you assistance

Great to see it is working, sometimes you have to 'trick' the program.

See image for some clarification on the VLC.
I like using VLC for the Scanner as I can use iTunes for Podcasts, Music etc.

Therefore I can Listen to the Scanner, iTunes, Surf, Email, RSS
QT and scratch my butt all at the same time. :rolleyes: ;)

Don't forget about : http://72.143.98.151:8000/police
(Listen to the whole KCI Lock down and search for the police officers gun yesterday.:yikes: )
