    Last week, I was on a train going up the bank of the Mississippi River in
    Iowa (and a bit of Minnesota). My 4400, when it didn't say Searching For
    Service, would either show a channel number or AMPS B, and at least once
    AMPS A (which was solid roaming). There were several SIDs, some of them
    from across the river in Wisconsin.

    Last week, I was on a train going up the bank of the Mississippi River in
    Iowa (and a bit of Minnesota). My 4400, when it didn't say Searching For
    Service, would either show a channel number or AMPS B, and at least once
    AMPS A (which was solid roaming). There were several SIDs, some of them
    from across the river in Wisconsin.
