Default OnQue Site 47

Has anyone ever seen site 47 on the OnQue system?

It always shows up as a neighbor site on Kitchener 202-16.

For months now it has shown up as site 47, control channel 323 but I have never been able to co-relate this to a frequency.

Any ideas?

I am see also in the DB that it's listed as a neighbour of Site 26 in Moorefield. Maybe someone could check the sites in St Mary's, Stratford, Woodstock, Cambridge, Hillsburgh and see if this site shows up as a neighbour. Looking at a map I wonder if this site is located in around Fegus for coverage between Moorefield/Kitchener/Hillsburgh?

Our Network : OnQ Network has a map of tower locations on their page. Does that not help?

I don't see any sites inbetween/near/around Moorefield/Kitchener that this could be unless it's not listed which is possible as the Cambridge site too is not on the map either.

Also i don't see any frequency listings in the DB for the Proton and Walkerton sites.

Has anyone ever worked out a control channel to frequency chart?

I tried but gave up.

Control Channel for site 47 is 323

If there is a channel number to frequency relationship, it's not consecutive, or obvious. Have a look at site detail, which usually lists both. Since CC's can change (for multi-channel sites, e.g. site 022), I'd just call them channel numbers.

OnQue uses a custom frequency table. The lower channel numbers have some semblance of order, but anything above 85 is all over the map. You'll have to search as low as 410 MHz and as high as 465 MHz. Find a spot with an awesome view and start searching.

No sign of a site 47 from Halton County:

Hillsburgh site 46 neighbors reported:

1, 3, 6

Milton site 6 neighbors reported:

1, 2, 3, 8, 16, 26, 31


Cheers!

Thank you to all that have responded.

I guess this will have to remain a mystery for a bit longer.

Thank you, Ralph VE3EUK

So, 420.1875 is not Site 27, as listed in our database?

Hamilton site 3, CC 420.7375 as I write this, is showing neighbors of 1, 5, 6, 10, 16, 25 & 27.

Fonthill site 5, CC 420.84375 as I write this, is showing neighbors of 3, 25 & 27.

Unfortunately I'm not in a position to see the Brantford site. From what we are not seeing I'd say 47 is west of highway 8 and north of the 401 based on it's seemingly limited neighbors?

There is a tower in Hanover, but we have no listing for that site. Maybe that's 47?
