Conspiracy theory moment: I saw one or two of these over the summer and fall last year, and didn't see it again until now (March). Perhaps AAF (Alberta Agriculture and Forestry) since it is now technically fire season (even though there's nearly 1.5m of snow on the ground here)?

Also, relating to my last post: Lethbridge FD Engine 1 was 5041401. I am seeing occasional registration attempts locally by other 504 radios - 2239, 2300 (more often than the other two), and 2380 - but I don't have groups for them at this point.
I too have seen groups 501 to 507 over the winter and some voice testing but nothing to give away the user. Jay I'm with you on Forestry.

Speaking of EMS on AFFRRCS, the database lists Calgary EMS Metro Talkgroups 460-469 as D.
Seems to me at least the dispatch talgroups are encrypted, no?

Yes those 10 Hex talk groups should be encrypted,

Just heard from an acquaintance off-RR that he has logged talkgroups 2474-2478 as Strathcona County Fire with agency 19. On my PRO96COM logs I see a radio on a Calgary site with RID 191942 tried to affiliate to 2474 this past weekend.

Yes Agency 19 is Strathcona County Fire and talk groups 2474 to 2478 are channels 1 to 5 with dispatch on 1. 191942 is Car 2 which may be Deputy Chief but I'm not 100 per cent on that. It is Car 2.

Going over my recordings from the past week - picked up TG 1206 being used for Edmonton area hospitals (or at least testing, setting-up) much like 1207 is used for Calgary area hospitals.

1207 is, I think, the AFRRCS equivalent for the old CHEARS (Calgary Emergency Hospital Aid Radio System) channel that was on 155.25. Dunno if Edmonton has a similar acronym. EHEARS? Maybe it's also CHEARS, with C being Capital?

Heard two radios - 4130027 was Leduc Hospital and 4130028 was RAAPID North. (RAAPID is an AHS call center that directs prehospital care providers to the most appropriate hospital or care center.)

CHEARS moved to a Calgary Digital talkgroup about 15 years ago as part of their interoperability upgrades.

HEARS was originally a Motorola signalling format for hospitals that they developed in the 60's-70's?

Yes 1207 on the alpha tag says EDM O CHEAR. Not sure what the O is and AFAIK we've never had an Edmonton area Hospitals network. Thanks for clarification as to the RAAPID South and North explanation.

Pretty sure I saw activity on 503 the other day. I can't find it in my logs on PROScan though.

Anything I've logged on 18XX TGs are 421 for the agency ID. Not sure if it helps or not?

Sorry, looks like I never replied; 421 is indeed Edmonton PS as far as I've been able to tell. (I actually see a 421 radio trying to affiliate to an EPS TG down here in Calgary today... good luck dude...)

My PRO96COM logs picked up both a pair of new talkgroups and a pair of new patch group IDs yesterday. Groups 3892 and 3893 were being patched together using patch IDs 56000 and 56001. Previous patches since the system went 'truly' live were all in the 62xxx range. No idea where or what 3892/93 are for, no audio logged.

Yes EPS are Agency 421 but next to nothing on AFRRCS other than the six dispatch channels that are patched to EDACS. On the AFRRCS side encrypted. EPS still using PV for CPIC info on Info channel.

Not quite sure why, but 3628 has been somewhat active in Calgary area recently with 50423xx radios in encrypted mode.

Also:

A number of TGs between 300-321 with RIDs in the 4013xxx range, rumored to be Corrections.

Confirmed Agency 5 as Turner Valley CPO; Agency 9 is another Foothills-area CPO (or at least dispatched by them).

Agency 502 pinned down as City of Airdrie. TG 2408 is probably CPOs.

Picked up agency 655 doing a bunch of testing on TGs 4061 thru 4063 over the past few days.

I'm going to suggest 503 is for Leduc City overall, as my recordings logged 5030006 on the AFRRCS01 provincewide CET giving a size-up at a fire and declaring Engine 1 would be in command. No idea if it was training or real-world. Recording was from yesterday at 1500.

Yes 503 would be Leduc City. I have not reviewed that recording but I did hear some of it when I was out driving. That is the first time I’ve heard more than just “test test”.

I was also driving and wondered if it was simulcasting the exsisting VHF traffic as it was not as clear as what I'd expect from just AFRRCS activity. Could not check it against the VHF system.

I have reviewed my recording and found the majority of what I have recorded for the city of Leduc has been nothing but Dead air, fuzzy and/or a buzzing for the past couple of days. I would venture to say what we did hear back on the first and some recordings I got from yesterday that it was simulcasted. Recording I have from yesterday which included on scene and dispatch communication was on talkgroup 3376.

Talkgroup 3376-3401 I feel comfortable saying our for the City of Leduc if not a few more. At this point I do not know which are for what other than 3401 I havily suspect is the CPO’s but not used since 7th April.
