This Stream is located near the Flathead Valley, 11 miles west of Whitefish on the western approach to Marias Pass. With the stream receiver located at the 3600 ft elevation level, excellent quality radio communications can be heard, including some distant Montana Rail Link dispatcher traffic from their 4th Subdivision.

BNSF radio traffic between Glacier Park and Eureka area is the primary focus of this stream.

There are two dispatcher channels (Glacier and Boyer East) which are being monitored, along with a Montana Rail Link dispatcher (West) Channel. Whitefish yard switching and all MRAS (Mobile Phone to Dispatch and Signal Maintenance) maintenance channels between Belton and Brimstone will also be heard.

Helpers are added to trains requiring the additional boost at Whitefish. You will hear them communicating to the headend as they tie on, the air test is performed and they get underway with their long slog over Marias Pass.
