Title: KPKB Feed Info
Post by: JayH on January 27, 2013, 07:06:22 PM
After a couple of years of good intentions I finally brought up a feed from my local airport, KPKB in Parkersburg, WV.  The receiver location is about 8.4NM WSW from the airport in Belpre, OH.

Here's what I'm using to broadcast the feed:
4-element Yagi antenna tuned to 123.7MHz - custom made by Arrow Antennas
Antenna is rooftop mounted approximately 20ft AGL
RG8 coax with PL/SO-259 connections
Bearcat BC-350C Scanner
Acer Aspire Revo R3610 NetTop Computer (also my HTPC)

Please let me know if you're a regular listener or live in the area.  I'd love to hear your feedback.

I just wanted to post a quick update for this feed. I’m having some work done on my house and had to take down the antenna used for the KPKB and ZID feeds. I’m hoping to bring them back up in the coming months when I can get the antenna installed in a new location.

Hello Jay,

Hope your home construction project work goes per plan.  I am glad that I have checked the Forum before posting my inquiries regarding the lost Parkersburg feed (for the last few days).  Hope that it will be back online upon completion of your home project and the antenna is repositioned again. 

I have been a daily listener to your Parkersburg feed and was lost in the last few days when it was down.  Thank you for including Indy's 125.55 which helps to tune-in to the flow from/to Parkersburg as well as departing/arriving traffic from/to Yeager.  Your kind gesture is greatly appreciated as well for others offering other feeds in WV as well as other locations in the country and worldwide.  All the best

Thanks for your response, George.  It's great knowing that the feed is being used and appreciated.  The house work is done, but it's going to take some work to get everything installed and tested in the new location.  I'll try not to let it fall too far down my to-do list! :)

Thank you Jay and hope to have it back online when your time permits.

On the flip side, Charleston channels went offline yesterday so counting on Indy and Clarksburg to provide traffic flow.  Hope to have it back online soon.  All the best.
