This site is located in Joseph City at the Jack Rabbit Trading Post / Gift Shop.  The site is located a few miles West of CP Manila.  Currently we have our temporary equipment (Laptop) installed at the location to see how well the reception is.   So far, it is looking to be a very promising site and would love to eventually install permanent equipment and a new antenna.  Currently we are seeing East Hibbard to Holbrook.  Arntz and West Adamana come in with a High Error Rate.  We are asking for assistance on covering the some of the costs for those that enjoy the BNSF Seligman/Gallup subs.  Any help we can get, will be appreciated and if anyone wants to help us with this site by donating to the link below and mention in the notes it is for "Joseph City ATCS" and if you would like your name and amount to be added to our Supporters Page or stay Anonymous.   For those users using the TM5 Layout, we are in the process of updating it this evening to show the expanded coverage.  Thanks to all that as helped us continuing to expand the coverage and keeping it all running.

Would like to explore expanded ATCS coverage east to include at least all of Adamana.  Local 61 goes there several times a week, as well as many trains get tied down there.  Also would like to get radio from the repeater there.  Can Jackrabbit do that?

I am not sure @DDA40Xfan_Bruce if they have the bandwidth, but can check.

Hi Jeff, working with TM5 this morning, working well. Any further consideration about Jackrabbit?

Jeff

Hi Bruce,
We are still working on the details.  Verizon is not being helpful

I'm in TM5 Seligman Sub and not seeing anything east of Winslow.  In the Gallup Sub layout same east of Winslow. I can see Gallup area and Belen ok.

Jeff

Good Morning Bruce and Hope you had a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving.  Sorry for the delay.  The trading post has been having intermittent issues for the past week.  They are waiting on Verizon to reset the tower.
