FEC and Wild Feed Up

I have restored the Florida East Coast Railway and Wild Feeds for now.

The F.E.C. feed is the same as it ever was, still a rinky dink magnetic mount antenna sitting on the roof, doesn't hear all that well.

Bote's Wild Feed monitors Broward fire Dispatch 1, the tac channels, and some of the beach patrol channels until they become unbearable. This feed could change at a moment's notice. It is a wild feed after all.

Irma Killed Key West Feed

Hurricane Irma knocked out power or Comcast Internet (or both) Saturday night to Bote's Southernmost Feed so that's all she wrote until things return to normal down there. No ETR. I expect power to be out for an extended period of time.

F.E.C. Ry Fort Lauderdale feed testing

I am testing a feed of Florida East Coast Railway radio communications around Fort Lauderdale. The current range is limited by a poor antenna system, but the coverage will improve. For now there is a good amount of activity locally from the construction foremen overseeing the upgrades for All Aboard Florida / Brightline passenger service.

Since F.E.C. Railway does not call signals you will only hear traffic when the dispatcher calls a train or a train asks for permission through a particular work authority. A.A.F. work authorities are fairly busy during the morning and early afternoon hours while the regular freight traffic generally is more active in the evening and especially the earlier mornings when 3 southbounds cruise through Lauderdale while the Boca local and Port Everglades switcher try to get their work done in the mix.

Feed details are found on Bote's Streaming Audio page.
