CSX and NS - East Kentucky and SW Virginia
|CSX and NS - East Kentucky and SW Virginia||Rail
This feed is located in Elkhorn City, Kentucky and covers the CSX and Norfolk Southern Railroads in Eastern Kentucky, Southwest Virginia, and parts of Southern West Virginia. Main areas of coverage will be the CSX Big Sandy and Kingsport Subdivisions from around Shelby, Kentucky to Haysi, Virginia. Also parts of the NS Pocahontas division including the Buchanan Branch, Dry Fork Branch and Clinch Valley District. Most of the traffic heard on the NS frequencies will be dispatcher activity since the receiving station is a considerable distance from the main line and separated by very mountainous terrain.
Receiving equipment consists of a Yaesu FT-2900, colinear vertical antenna at 50', and a low noise pre-amp.
