ATIS airport broadcasts (Automatic Terminal Information Service)

Mostly recorded during my holiday trips through France, Switzerland and Germany while driving by or stopping near the airports.
Its a pity that more and more broadcasts are being done by computer voices, I just noticed (2008/05) that also Hamburg ATIS has one now, appearing to be the same system as already used at Hannover. I cant really explain it, but somehow these announcements convey a sense of internationality to me, hearing the people speaking in English with their native accents, etc..

* The radio emissions of the trains were recorded with a crude but effective method, using an AM radio.
Such a little helper is always handy for a lot of things, eg. to check if a device or PCB is energized, if a controller is operating, to check if something is oscillating, or for lightning detection.
You could call it a "lifesigns-detector" for electronics.
