My equiptment.

No one has asked me yet but I'm going to share with you what I use to take video and stills of trains. I use only two pieces of electronics's. My Kodak Easyshare C875 with a 5X optical zoom at 8.0 mega pixels. My scanner is a Uniden BC72XLT and has NASCAR written on it. In my opinion it's not the best scanner around however it serves it's purpose for me very well though there are times I pick up an annoying sound every now and then other than that it's pretty good as in it serves me well. However when summer comes I'll be looking into getting a new camera and scanner that will out do what I have now at any length. Why do I have small stuff now? Well baby's have to learn how to crawl before they walk right?

Good, I was begening to think I was the only person with that scaner. Well it works great but I don't think I get good range with it. hows your range? Sometimes I pick up unwanted signals but I'm still learning about my scaner so all will be well with it.

I live about a mile from the NBSRs Dever Rd Yard and I can hear quite abit. When in your car one way to extend your range is to get an external antenna.

Nothing wrong with baby steps... good equipment helps but it's the guy holding the equipment that is key. Don't worry about having the best gear!
