Feed Notes

This feed combines two radios.  One radio (your left speaker) scans 4 channels used by CP Rail on the C&M Subdivision and by METRA on the Milwaukee District North Line (including the "J Line" to Fox Lake).  These are:

160.770    AAR 44         METRA MILW-North Line Chicago -> Rondout -> Fox Lake

161.085    AAR 65         CP C&M Sub west (compass north) of Rondout -> Milwaukee

161.370    AAR 84         Licensed for CP C&M Sub

The other radio (your right speaker) scans the 18 channels listed below.  Signal strength is lower on the UP and CN (ex-WC) channels due to distance.

NOTE REGARDING TYPICAL LATENCY: Broadcasts are heard through this site 20 to 35 seconds after actual transmissions occur in the field.

This set-up covers the CP/METRA line, the UP passenger and freight lines to Kenosha, the CN (former WC) line, and the CN (former EJ&E) that intersects with all of the above.

Antenna is a Larsen NMO150C mounted 25 feet above ground level in attic on piece of galvanized steel to make a ground plane.  Stridsberg Active Multicoupler used to feed 2 radios.
