This Realistic Pro-2052 and its dedicated PC are physically in Hampshire county (Huntington), although most monitored activity is in Hampden county. The following frequencies are monitored;
- 160.560 CSX NC (Berkshire sub) dispatcher (Agawam, Russell and Chester bases)
- 160.680 CSX NC (Boston sub) dispatcher (Agawam base)
- 161.070 CSX W. Springfield yard
- 160.800 CSX road
- 160.770 NEC dispatcher (Palmer)
- 161.160 PanAm District 3 dispatcher (Springfield base)
Much of what you'll hear is CSX between CP105 (Westfield) and CP123 (Chester) on the Berkshire. With our new omni antenna (Firestik trimmed two meter 5/8 wave ground plane) and eighty foot tower, the W. Springfield yard office is now clearly heard, as are most CSX dispatcher transmissions around Springfield and the NEC dispatcher in Palmer. Alpha tags are provided to assist in identifying what is being heard at any given moment; these are best viewed using dedicated audio players such as iTunes, Winamp or Windows Media Player. Note that this feed no longer covers Amtrak MRS line transmissions, as these now have their own dedicated feed in Warehouse Point with much clearer reception.
