Feed Notes

Normally rivals, the Norfolk Southern and CSX join forces in Decatur to cross the mighty Tennessee River.  Although the bridge is owned by NS, it actually sees more CSX traffic per day than it does Thoroughbred traffic. Decatur is on the Memphis to Chattanooga NS route and the Nashville to Birmingham CSX route. Both CSX and NS have medium sized yards here for interchange traffic and local industry. Local industries served by rail in Decatur vary from chemical plants to pet food manufacturing, almost all of which are located along the river.

The feed is set up with two monitoring radios: one for local road channels and one for local yard/MOW channels (See below for channels/frequencies monitored by each radio). Each radio is fed to one of a pair of channels that comprise a stereo feed. This way, both road and yard action can be monitored via a single feed, which greatly simplifies PC hardware/software configuration.

Frequencies monitored by the live feed:

CSX (Left Channel):
161.370 MHz AAR 84: CSX Road
160.410 MHz AAR 20: CSX Dispatcher

Norfolk Southern (Right Channel):
160.950 MHz AAR 56: NS Road (Channel 1)
160.245 MHz AAR 09: NS DS -> Train (Channel 2)
160.830 MHz AAR 48: NS Train -> DS (Channel 2)
