Feed Notes

Fisherman and boat club chatter was getting to be too much and contributing no "story" so I have cut back to five frequencies: (1) 156.800 Marine VHF 16 International Distress, Safety and Calling; (2) 156.600 Marine VHF 12 Port Operations, used to coordinate bridge passage; (3) 160.230 AAR 8 - CSX Railroad road channel; (4) 160.635 AAR 35 - CSX Railroad dispatcher channel; and on a trial basis, (6) 161.325 Amtrak Michigan Line. Saint Joseph, Michigan, features the intersection of the CSX railroad, a navigable river, and general pleasure and commercial traffic on Lake Michigan. There is a railroad swing bridge and two highway bridges that cross the Saint Joseph River, with radio traffic coordinating train and boat movements. The feed is delivered from a 15' mast on the top of a single story house located near downtown Saint Joseph, fed into a Mac Mini and streamed from there. Trains can be heard 7-10 miles away, with dispatcher transmissions coming from much further.
