Default 146.915

For the last month, I have been hearing digital noise around the VE6VHF frequency of 146.91 in the southeast portion of Calgary. I know it is not Fusion. Thus could be DMR, D-Star or P25. The signal strength is strongest around 146.915 to 146.92. There is no listed repeater on any of the City of Calgary amateur radio clubs websites, nor repeaterbook.com. With this past summers interference on local FARS repeaters in Calgary, largely by construction companies, I hope that this digital noise on 146.915 is not another business operating illegally within the amateur radio bands. Thus would like to hear if anyone can shed some light on this frequency in Calgary.

I have heard it mid morning, afternoon and early evening. Not every day but no specific days. Heard it yesterday [Sunday] around 1500 hours.

How about posting a raw audio sample so we can better help you identify it?

Somebody might run DSD+ on it, see if it decodes.

Audio sample could help, I've become familiar with sounds of the various modes.

Could be somebody using Packet who is not familiar with the band plan. That is the only thing that jumps to mind only because I have seen that happen back in the mid 1990's.

Unfortunately, most times I hear it I am driving or using a portable that do not have any recording mechanism. I left a scanner on today, but nothing recorded.

I don't think it is packet as the signal is far too long. I know we have had APRS recently on a couple local repeaters by accident. Have not heard anything since Sunday
