Well, after a long learning curve I think I have the mechanics of the site working.
Of course I had to splash the cash and order a Cpanel hosting site. So you can take a look here if you want, http://www.amsnw.myzen.co.uk/
I have a few things to sort out, redirection to the domain instead of the above url. I will do that this evening.
Does any one know if there are restrictions on using the audio from the aircraft / ground and posting on my web site? or will I need a licence ?
Looking good Andy :-)
Regarding the aircraft/ground audio, I think that it might be better to leave that one as you might be making a trouble for yourself and drawing some unwanted attention to Mode S receivers in general.
Whilst I can't remember the exact wording, you are only entitled to lisen to radio transmissions that are meant for you - so that's all the normal BBC, Local Radio, public service, amateur radio type transmissions. Transmission to and from aircraft are not meant for you and so you are not supposed to listen to them. You can take the pilots RT exam which will allow you to use a radio when you are flying as a pilot, but not to give you permission to listen as an individual. If you put the radio on a website, then you are completely outside the regulations.
I know that the authorities generally turn a blind eye to spotters and their scanners, in theory they could take them all and fine the users.
I know that there are websites with ATC radio feeds, but you will notice that these do not include UK ATC - different rules for different countries!
Yes thanks for that. I had forgot that they only turn a blind eye to us listening in to airband. As you say they might get up one morning and decide to enforce the law.
Any way I have the site working now I am just waiting a few hours for the domain name to start up.
Thanks again for your advice.
