I answered a question regarding military intercepts recently. A few days later someone posted a recording of an interception of a Bonanza in a TFR (VIP movement) in the forums at liveatc.net. Very interesting too, with both UHF and VHF (Guard) communication. Can I link to it in the question? The problems I see is that a) you need to register to download the clip, and b) I don't like linking to forums as I suppose you never know how long the thread will survive, but maybe that's just me.

Also, assuming I have permission to distribute the clip, is it possible to store it on stackexchange somehow, like with images?

    $\begingroup$ Well, you can post links to about anywhere, but you may want to include a disclaimer that registration is required (especially since that site doesn't make it obvious that you need to register in order to see the attachments). Otherwise you may annoy some people. :) I don't know of anyway to upload it to SE though so you could only find some other place to store and link it. $\endgroup$ – Lnafziger Feb 21 '14 at 1:12

    $\begingroup$ You can upload it to youtube and embed it in your answer (if you can upload audio to youtube). We at gaming see youtube clips in answers a lot. $\endgroup$ – One-One Mar 3 '14 at 9:47

I don't see any problem with linking to LiveATC (or the YouTube trick One-One mentioned, particularly if you want to add helpful illustrations & annotations).

Leaving a "(Registration required)" note would be nice, but I think most aviation enthusiasts won't mind registering for access to the LiveATC archives.

  • $\begingroup$ This seems like a pretty reasonable solution. I tend to do similar disclaimers for big .pdf files, or other things that have some barrier to entry, so it makes sense in this context. $\endgroup$ – egid Mar 15 '14 at 21:23

    $\begingroup$ I link people to NTSB report PDFs - I have no shame! :-) $\endgroup$ – voretaq7 Mar 15 '14 at 21:42
