Hello, gang. de N3DDY, Bill from Rogertown, PA....along the old P&E mainline ( PRR, then Conrail, Allegheny RR, and currently the Allegheny & Eastern ) I have been a ham since 1976, currently not real active, but my 443.9 repeater (pl 88.5) in Warren, PA is still perking along nicely. Living here - 1000' from a uphill curve on the tracks is somewhat frustrating because I can hear the power very well as they battle with Griff Hill, but not see a thing cuz of all the [email protected]#$%^&*( trees. Anyway, they are busy enough I can hear the trains at least once a day.
I have been interested in trains, buses, big trucks, lake shipping, and other big things that go for a LONG time. Has been a few years since I poked around on the internet and holy cow, there is a LOT more rail oriented stuff here now.
