From past experience with Nez Rouge/Red Nose (when I could hear them), they operate
friday and saturday nights plus New Year's Eve, starting well before bar closing time as
there are lots of private events, and not everybody sticks around until closing time.
The Belleville antennas are definitely VHF, but simplex seems a bit doubtful. I'd check around
for VHF repeaters TAS operates there. Failing that, some band searching in the early hours
when not much else is going on, might be productive.
Reading about Quebec operations, frequencies/systems vary all over the map from UHF
to 800MHz LTR, depending on location.
For example from TAFL: Stirling Ont. 164.445, 166.125, 166.200 repeaters
