I am planning on visiting a friend in the Omemee area right outside (EMILY PARK) and is an Ontario Parks campground. What is the talk groups the park wardens use?

Search between 46 and 48Mhz and you should find them. You can also do a search on TAFL which will probably give you their frequency.
Park Wardens are not on Fleetnet.

You could try using the Close Call feature on your scanner too... might snag something that way.

I can second the 46.820. I worked at Balsam Lake for years and had my scanner set up to monitor the activity in the park when I was not working. Balsam and Emily Provincial Parks both operate on the same frequencies.

I was checking status of MOH PTAC (149.605) in TAFL and noticed the repeater
pair is now assigned to a number of Ontario provincial parks, several show as
pending. PTAC is still licensed to MOH in some areas including Ottawa.

Two other repeaters assigned to parks are 148.450 and 149.620. I wonder if
this signals MNR moving away from low-band, to high-band which appears
interoperable with Fleetnet (conventional narrowband analog voice). People near
the parks listed (check TAFL for details, start with callsigns CKR447-CKR454)
or actually attending them, may want to keep an ear on these. TX ERP
is typically around 17dBW (50W).

Springwater PP is now licenced on 149.605mHz but unfortunately, the park's status was changed to non-operational about a month ago.

Last time I checked, the frequencies were all pending.

Heard Oastler Lake Provincial Park on 149.6050mHz with a tone of 110.9hz today.

Did you happen to see if the 149.605 frequency was patched in any sort of way with their low band stuff?

No but the scanner didn't stop on their lowband channel at all so I suspect no patch was in place.

Would have been more interesting to see if a patch to Fleetnet was in place.

Lot's of VHF frequencies for the MNR being added in TAFL. Emission designator is 8K10F1DXN which makes me wonder if they're rolling out NXDN for the parks?

I've heard that some provincial correctional facilities have switched to it already. Seems BMR is going with somebody other than Motorola.

I saw all those TAFL entries as well for numerous parks (although didn't notice any in my area) and was wondering the same thing. Haven't noticed any change in prison activity around here... EMDC is still analog...

That park has a pending allocation at 148.450 and 8.1kHz bandwidth looks
to me like P25.

So, any new reports of activity on any of the new high-band channels? I listen from
time to time but nothing yet down this end.

I also found some other interesting info posted for N. Ontario regarding other new
MNR highband frequencies. A lot of it looks like air-ground firefighting.

I've only noticed Oastler Lake on VHF so far although I did hear one or two transmissions on the old MOH PTAC in the Barrie area.
Otherwise they're quiet.
I would have thought Wasaga Beach would have been one of the first to move considering how poorly their lowband repeater works. BMR has yet to find the problem and fix it.
