That's Beiseker... Hwy 9 x Hwy 21 more-or-less. Nice 'skip'!

Instead of loading all the sites is there an easy way to load single sites to the PSR-800?

You can create the site manually, or download either the RRDB version or the one that's on the wiki page (which can be imported into EZ-Scan as a backup file) and lock out the sites you don't want.

Nothing is really done easily in that software. I don't have my netbook handy right now (at work) but if I recall, you select the system (or create it if it doesn't exist), then add new site in the bottom half of the display. On the left side of the bottom half, you can name the site, and on the right half, you key in the frequencies. Make sure the band plan is set to "Auto Fill", and don't forget to upload the data to the 800 after you're done the edit.

Maybe I'll give it a try. As long as it doesn't overwrite what I already have in there. So much for calling it "EZ-Scan".

Another good day for 700 MHz scanning. Beiseker coming in again loud and clear in Edmonton.

Another new site confirmed. Pigeon Lake on System 5A Site 14-14 on CC 771.3937.

Two new sites showed up this morning if you are waaaaaay up northwest. Steen River and Indian Cabins on the 35 a few km south of the NT border. They're in the Google map as of now.

Cool July 30th?

Rumour has it AHS is going live on AFRRCS at the end of this month.....I've heard Calgary dispatch talking directly to 911 dispatch in Medicine Hat, testing. Wasn't sure if it was on 700 or their VHF repeater as I couldn't see the scanner......?

Going to call bull on this 'rumour'. Considering the system is not built out yet, nor has it been tested and accepted yet...

Well that's what I thought too......saw one of the new EMS handhelds.......It looked like a trunked 700 but...........doesn't make sense to me either.

There are not any 700MHz only radios. If you are in Calgary or Edmonton, AHS is using the cities respective trunk systems. As a side note, the Jedi portables that, I believe Calgary Metro and CFD, uses/ed have not been produced by Motorola for quite a while now. With out actually seeing what they are currently using in Calgary, my guess would probably be the XTS line of portables. While the XTS series are ASTRO capable, they also operate analogue as well. The XTS series, operate on both 700MHz and 800MHZ, while technically a single band radio in this case the XTS covers 2 ranges.

I obviously can't say much, but the deal with Medicine Hat testing with Calgary is not AFRRCS-related.

I'm thinking if they are still dispatching out of the Medicine Hat center this may be the cut over to the Calgary comms center. The same is proposed for Red Deer soon. Not sure if it will go to Calgary or Edmonton.

Got a look at the EMS radios in the 'Hat'.....they look and sound like IDEN and may be a stopgap between what they had and AFRRCS......

And dispatch is now out of Calgary.

Heard from a source with AHS, looks like they are re-inventing the existing communications wheel, just because they can, until they can get on AFRRCS... Has CF written all over it.

Sort of explains why most counties around Edmonton have upgraded their radio systems to digital with government funds in the shadow of the AFFRCS did not make sense unless something has gone sideways
Would not surprise me if SOG make an announcement delaying the project and some indication of a partnership with a third party

I can tell you that nothing has been heard on the Medicine Hat EMS freq for a week or so. I'm not sure where they have moved to or what they are up to but the repeater they have here is no longer in use.

Now I just need to find out where they went to! Sure would be nice to know.

I thought the IDEN system was being phased out? I live with a paramedic, I'll see what he has to say.

Folks, the iDEN system and the recent change of dispatch in Medicine Hat have nothing to do with AFRRCS....
