I am having trouble understanding how the HomePatrol location feature works for monitoring railroad communications. I live in Maryland near the CSX Metropolitan subdivision. I monitor the road, dispatch, and wayside or maintenance frequencies and hear traffic quite often. the CSX dispatcher is, i think, located in Jacksonville, FL and can communicate on using different antennae. On my BC-346XT i programmed the in use for Maryland that I have learned are use on the Metropolitan subdivision.
For my work location in Virginia, I added some CSX frequencies.
Frequency assignments can be effective over long distances. Does the database in the radio include the various antennae and frequencies that might be used over a whole subdivision?
