• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

On the Wiki Collaboration Page for Florida there is a link for Florida Railroads. In it you will find a completed list of FEC RR Defect Detectors complete with call sign and coordinates to there exact location. Also under CSX I have completed all of the Subdivisions for the Jacksonville Division. There a more condensed version of the CSX Timetable's. They provide info such as major locations (by milepost) along each line, junctions with other CSX lines & railroads and the special attention was put on Defect Detectors providing there exact location by coordinates as well as the frequency they transmit on and there FCC call sign. The only problem is some subdivisions are listed under "Florida Division" and most are under "Jacksonville Division". But there all there. I hope any Florida Railfans like myself will find this useful!!!!

Thank you for your efforts on this project! Impressive, indeed! Do you know if there are plans for any other live audio feeds for the FEC other than the one for Bowden Yard?
Keep up the good work and 73!

To be honest, I don't. I haven't even listened to the one that is up. I tried to do a live feed here in West Palm Beach using my old laptop which has XP on it but it didn't want to cooperate. I'll be doing more Divisions/Subdivisions in the future. It's all the info I would want as a railfanner in a simpler to read format.

That's kool. I'm going to try and get out there in the field and record some defect detectors and add the recordings next to the link. If you have any and want to do the same feel free. When I lived up in Upstate NY I recorded all the detectors on the CSX "Chicago Line" and will be adding them soon. I'm getting them transferred from an old mini cassette to CD.

I have some from Ohio and other random ones recorded from Amtrak as well.
Sweet!!!! Would love to hear them. I've never added an audio link to the wiki page before but I think I've got the procedure to do it. Mine were on a minicassette tape that I had to take to someone so they could transfer it over to CD cause my old minicassette player doesn't work anymore. Once I got it back I'll be posting the audio links next to the corresponding detector on the CSX Chicago Line. I'll keep you in mind when I do the subdivisions in Ohio so you can add those.
