• Amtrak 6 - Strikes Semi (with radio communications) at Somonauk, Illinois on 10-13-2015

    This has got to be an engineer’s worst nightmare; Cruising along at 79 M.P.H. you notice a wide load not clearing the crossing directly ahead of you. Thankfully the “load” cleared the crossing, and a quick thinking engineer put the train in emergency in an attempt to stop. The semi driver never saw the train coming, and claimed that the crossing activated as he started to cross. Again thankfully, only one person was transported to a local hospital to be checked out, and two others signed medical releases at the scene. Had the situation been seconds earlier, this crash would have been deadly. Listen in to the radio communication between the engineer and crew, along with the dispatcher, captured from the Northern Illinois Railroad radio feed.

  • The Decline of Illinois - Radio Segment 1

    Join Jack Roeser and Carol Parisi along with Pension and Finance Expert Marc Levine as they discuss everything Pension in the State of Illinois. The picture Mark paints for Illinois finances is quite gloomy. While we will most definitely find ourselves over the cliff past the point of no return in years to come. The question begs itself now, have we already gone over the cliff? Is there no return to fiscal solvency without extreme pension reform. In short, have the teachers been sold a bill of goods? Will the teachers eventually lose their pensions while the unions spend millions on political campaigns? www.championnews.net

  • NXDN over Amateur Radio in Southern Illinois

    There are many different modes to use within the hobby of ham radio. I've always preferred digital voice over analog due to the amount of static in an FM signal as you got farther from the source. After testing every other digital mode available at that time, my friends and I adopted NXDN 6.25 for our primary voice repeater needs. We have 2 UHF 440mHz repeaters, with more to come online in the future. We are halfway finished linking our current repeaters together. This video highlights some of our on-air time and gives some examples and information about how we use the mode.
