AT EMPORIA, KS
Last updated on 05-10-2002
BROADCAST HOURS ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAYS NIGHTS STARTING BETWEEN 6PM AND 8PM CST TILL MIDNIGHT CST. CHECK BACK LATER IF IT IS NOT RUNNING YET. I FORGET ABOUT THE TIME SOMETIMES.
Also it will much of the
time be 40kbs stereo broadcast with two radios going. Also you will need Winamp
I moved back to my parents house with my own living quarters in the basement with a 25 foot telescopic mast in the back yard attached to the closeline pole and guyed with 3 wires. The ground plane VHF/UHF scanner antenna is at 20 feet and then the rotor and the little TV antenna for my FM Stereo radio stations and the 2 Meter ham radio 5 element beam antenna. I also have an alternate 15ft mast next to the house for lightweight antennas, such as my dipole CB antenna, and in the future a ARX2-B from Cushcraft. The reception isn't as great as on top of the apartment house I lived at for a year, but I got a neat setup in the back yard. I am using my Uniden Bearcat 248CLT base scanner with a homemade scanner dipole antenna. The antenna is mounted beside the house about 12 feet off the ground. The antenna is has elements for VHF lo/hi and UHF. The typical range is about 10-20 miles and during signal propagation it's farther than that!
I have my own phone line finally, so broadcasting isn't a problem. I'll try to announce ahead of time when I won't be broadcasting.
The frequencies I scan while rebroadcasting are:
BNSF 160.650 Emporia subdivision AAR CH36
BNSF 161.145 Topeka subdivision CH69
