Feed Notes

This feed will be of the Plainfield Connecticut rail yard of the Providence And Worcester Railroad. I will be broadcasting their Road Channel(160.650) as well as their Yard Channel (161.100). You hear will them getting there forms from the Dispatcher in Worcester for travel on the Main line, called the Norwich Branch, or the newly opened Willimantic Branch. There are two road jobs during the day, NR2, NR3, and a night job,NRWO. There may be any extra trains, NR4X or special trains such as ethanol, that may be needed. There are also days where there are no trains at all. Most of the trains start and end at this yard. You will also hear the crews as they make up or break down their trains. Depending on conditions you may also hear the Hot Box Detector in Jewett City. I will be using an HP Pavilion with a Uniden BC350A. I am looking to put an antenna on the roof of my house to get better reception. The yard is 2 miles driving on roads and slightly over a mile away line of sight. The yard as well is also lower then I am in elevation. By how much I am not sure.

As of 9-24-2012 there is an external antenna for this feed. Please let me know what you think and if recpetion is any better. I am also hoping to be able to hear the Hot Box Detector in Jewett City CT. If you happen to hear it, please take a moment to drop me a note. Thank, you.
