Williamtown ATC
It would be ggod if someone established a Williamtown feed. I thought maybe it was restricted because it is an RAAF Base but I notice Darwin, Townsville and Canberra are avaiable.
Does anyone know any more on this subjuct.

Anyone can set up a feed on probably just nobody up there interested [emoji5]
The only radio comms that would be 'restricted' would be encrypted already, or anything connecting to the phone network, as per the telecommumications act. WLM is a joint user airfield (military+civi).

Thanks Geoff for the info. I have a scanner at home in Newcastle but too far away to hear the tower and ground.

The RAAF use UHF for Comms which would be worth listening too and it may not always be retransmitted on VHF:

APPROACH: 135.7, 293.4
CNTR: 133.3, 243.0, 261.4
TWR: 118.3, 280.9
GND SMC: 121.8 (264.3)
GND SMCV: 127.25
ATIS: 316.1, 365KHz
FIA: 125.7 (BRIS CNTR)
NDB: 365KHz
CTAF: 118.3
AMS (MIL): 361.6
2OCU: 256.500, 282.500

Secure stuff these days is all data link, no chance of listening to that unless you have an Aegis in the backyard or your in a Wedgetail.
