• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Barrie doesn't have a frequency, it has a talkgroup.

That talkgroup can be found on many towers in the area including Edgar, Primrose and Penetang.

To add to Mike's point - the Edgar Tower would be the closest for you, in New Lowell... May be able to get Penetang or Thornbury, depending on your elevation, and antenna.

The Thornbury tower (Kimberley) doesn't carry Barrie too often. It's too far to the west to catch any Barrie traffic.

Penetang, Edgar and Primrose are the usual towers to find them on.

True enough - I run almost exclusively off the Edgar tower, and was just looking at the OP's location vs. tower sites, didn't consider traffic... My bad.
