a good spot for radio skips i've heard from railfans is just west of syracuse on route 5, route 20, or the seneca turnpike hearing the csx dispatchers from all across upstate ny.

Dave,

These are pretty much all night-time transmissions I assume? Good stories........It's amazing how far these
transmissions carry when there is less interference in the air! ;-)

When I still had a working roof antenna, I occasionally heard Savannah, GA's CSX yard and quite frequently CSX's AA dispatcher talking from either the Dade City or Bushnell antenna from my home in Jacksonville on clear nights.
