When in Warsaw area its hard to tell which dispatcher you are hearing for NS! It is interesting also that trains could in theory travel Ft. Wayne to Claypool, head north, use Warsaw wye connection and head east back to Ft. Wayne! And most the trip would be under the same dispatcher other than in Ft. Wayne area itself.

64 is the channel for the IB Dispatcher's Channel, or the old Road West.  

IC got assigned 30 when they went to separate channels for road and dispatcher.  They kept the Road Channel 46, and changed the Dispatcher to 30.  On the St. Louis line, they changed the Road Channel to 17 (for awhile) but then changed to 08 when constant interference became a big problem on 17.  IB remained on 64 for communications.

Used to change at Oaklandon to the ID channel, but now ID is on 38, and road remains 46 all the way to Bellefountaine, OH where it changes to 50-50.
