Amtrak P37115 west by Bangor at 7:39am with AMTK 90229, 3 supers, and a charger trailing.
11:13am - D700 must have gotten a very early start as they are eastbound from Holland nearing Jenison.

Q385 by South Lyon at 18:28. 534 axles, 7583 feet. Couldn't make out the engine number. Complete static for the Green Oak signal. Might be related to the heavy fog, but...
"In the discussion of attenuation, fog may be considered as another form of rain. Since fog remains suspended in the atmosphere, the attenuation is determined by the quantity of water per unit volume and by the size of the droplets. Attenuation because of fog is of minor importance at frequencies lower than 2 gigahertz. However, fog can cause serious attenuation by absorption, at frequencies above 2 gigahertz". http://www.tpub.com/neets/book10/40j.htm
