Congrats Benny!

I also like to occasionally monitor international ATC HF freq's. More hams ought not neglect SWL'ing; there is still lots of stuff to tune.

I bet that story even more impressed the cute blonde lass with the beer mug on your Zed page too ;-)

N6MEJ - Update from the BBC (to no surprise):

"Update 27 November 2012: Further checks have shown United Airlines does not fly from Dublin to Boston. Irish and US aviation authorities also say they have no record of these events. This information was put to Mr Young, who did not wish to comment."

The young lass probably fell for the BS too; lift another mug of ale Benny ...
