Acela Express 779 Posted November 12, 2009 Share #1 Posted November 12, 2009 Just purchased an radio scanner from RadioShack [model no. 20-164] to start listening into the radio waves on the subway. I've had this thing for almost eight hours and surprised by the amount of activity being transmitted between the trains and control center / towers. I've been listening into the waves mostly on IRT, IND, BMT & SIRT lines. Now the issue seems to be, I can mostly hear the tower clearly, but not the receiver (train operator). [edited], but other waves are a bit iffy... though enjoyable nontheless. Also I was able to hear a few southbound A trains checking in with the tower. How do I go about increasing the signal strength of my scanner to hear everything loud and clear throughout NYC? Possible? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
