Re: What portable scanner/antenna combo do you guys use?

I use a Vertex Standard (a.k.a. Yaesu) VX-150 with a Diamond RH77CA. Works great trackside, I can pick up stuff pretty well that my Radio Shack scanners don't. I also have a DPD Productions Traintenna on the car and it works pretty good too.

Actually I found an old stand in my dresser that's meant to hold up iPod's for a FM transmitter in my car that I don't have any more. Works perfectly. :D

Also got a new phone with a better video camera so they're a little clearer too. :D

Re: Lapeer video 3/30/14

I filmed it with my phone. I can't afford fancy cameras and tripods. Youtube "fixed" it for me. Like the title says, the train ID is CN Q148 (Chicago to Montreal).
