I did a Geographical search on Spectrum Direct using the above coords and a 10km radius, and found that Bell Paging has a site called Millar's Corners which is actually several miles south of Kemptville at 44.96048, -75.58534.
Took a drive over today to have a look. It's definitely the Bell Paging site at 44.96048, -75.58534 south of Kempville, between highway 416's exits 24 and 28 and is clearly visible to the east. The six bay folded dipole VHF array, like most other Fleetnet sites, is the first clue, and it passes the "take the antenna off the scanner" test when parked in their driveway. Also, the "MILRCR" site name would make sense for a site located at Millars's Corners.

Mtrunker32 (and Trunk88) report only five frequencies so far:

142.6200 Alternate Control Channel / Voice Channel
142.7550 Voice Channel
143.0700 Primary Control Channel
143.3100 Voice Channel
143.7750 Voice Channel

All four voice channels were busy at times, including the alternate control channel, which I've rarely seen before on other Fleetnet sites, so I expect to see more voice frequencies there before long.

I didn't check to the west, but coverage is very good east, well past Monkland to Maxville and nearly to Alexandria where Site 34 VANKLK (Vankleek Hill) on the same frequency takes over. So yes, hopefully they know what they are doing!

Whomever found this site - great work! I had heard of a new site somewhere in Zone 2, but had no idea where it was.

The L&G Fire dispatch is going p25, but not on the Fleetnet system.. Check out the forums for discussion on the switch

Thanks for confirming that. That's what I gathered from this, the only thread I can see about it.
