Hello,

Thanks guys enjoy the feed.

It's turning into a bit of technical challenge to make the feed sound good. Hi tension power lines run near the location and inject a bit of buzz into the feed. Dirty insulators is the likely cause? I have begun the process to have the power company look into the issue. I will be meeting with their RFI engineer next month (April). They are slow to respond but progress is being made. My spectrum analyzer suggests the interference is coming from their infrastructure.

Another issue is the airport navigation aid which is near by. I'll tackle that problem after the power company issue is addressed.

Radio Reference streams at a low bit rate. Weak signals and interference are heard with a metallic crunchy sound. So I hope to improve the reception to lessen that effect. The site is running a Motorola Spectra radio with many modifications to provide the best reception and sound.

You can view pictures of my different sites by clicking on the "Shack Pictures" link on the Radio Reference page.

I must say I missed Pete's feed for that area. I currently stream Pasco, Spokane, Herron, MT. for the MRL, Lind, WA., Wenatchee, and maybe Sandpoint in the future?

Gary, what channel does the Wenatchee stream run on? I can't really understand how you would be getting interference from the VOR-DME at the airport, since it runs at 111.000 MHz. There is also an RCO on Badger Mtn that is at 122.300 MHz.

161.100 is the RR Freq. The Nav aid has been ruled out. I haven't had any more time to investigate. I look into it again when I go back out in March.

KEAT Wenatchee VOR is at 111.00 but there are other transmitters also not a multiple of 161.10

111.00 Mhz VOR
109.35 Mhz RWY 12 ILS Localizer
331.85 Mhz RWY 12 ILS paired Glideslope
1008 Mhz 111.00 paired DME ground station
1071 Mhz 111.00 paired DME airborne
1117 Mhz 109.35 paired DME ground station
1054 Mhz 109.35 paired DME airborne
1090 Mhz ATC Transponder airborne replies
1030 Mhz ATC Transponder interrogations from airborne TCAS or Ground ATC Radar.
No radar ATC near Wenatchee..?

It doesn’t look like there is an active ADF 200-550Khz
And no active Marker beacons 75Mhz

There are Voice communication on 118-137Mhz
Also Airborne weather radar 9-10Ghz, Radar Altimeter 4.3Ghz

That’s the aircraft stuff not including the whole spectrum of other commercial communications that are likely concentrated at places like airports.

Well the latest problem at the location is ISP. The internet is dropping out and the ISP sees no problem. We are meeting Saturday. As of now Radio Reference asked if I would stop the stream until the internet situation can be addressed.

Gary, Thanks for the new feed. I too miss Pete Kruml's Stream, He did a fantastic job of keeping it all up. Do you know of any other "Ham's" on this side or even that side that could take over Pete's stations. I'm sure it is a hand full. It was an invaluable service for us R.R. Streamers that love knowing what is going on the Steel Roadway. Pete did an "A #1 Job". I look forward to listening in on your feed. Thanks again. Jon C.

Wish you'd get some coverage of Stampede Pass and Yakima Sub! It would be nice to have an alternative to the Bristol feed.

This is the part of the story where one of the people so excited about this stream are supposed to step up and find another location to host it.

Thank you again Gary for all your work on these projects.

Thanks Tom.

It will be awhile before I am even ready to consider another location. I am involved with too many ATCS projects at this time.

while we are making wish lists, i think the pasco stream would be more listenable if channel 80 (161.310) were removed from the scan. it is the yard switch, but to someone listening remotely, it doesnt mean much. it ends up walking all over the mainline channels too often. the main line channels are where we hear dispatchers, train departures/arrival and train symbols. for me, this is the important stuff.

i know, i know...beggars cant be choosers. :)

i really appreciate all you do. not trying to whine. just my two cents.

I appreciated the stream too while it lasted. Thanks Gary! Though above all I'd rather have more ATCS streams/routes covered online than road channels.

That is surprising you would need to do anything to that radio. I don't have a Spectra, but my MTS2000 on the Portland trunked system has fantastic audio.
I can be standing next to an engine with the pump running so you can barely hear yourself think and the MTS2000 with the speaker/mic on my shoulder is perfectly understandable. A scanner is just about useless on the fireground.
I'm curious as to what you actually did.
