• 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:

Hey guys, I think they must have done a transition to a new system over the weekend.

I have been listening for hours now and dead silent.....

As of last week I was picking them up no problem.

Anyone have any info?

Well Jason if that's true (which it probably is) this would mean the switch is probably almost complete.

I think the only analog users we have left on the old system is some police units with analog radios in 11 and 12 divisions, Mississauga transit (Miway) and Mississauga corporate security.

And BTW corporate security is the last Mississauga works talkgroup left on the od system.

I'm not sure. Haven't seen any of there channels pop up, there probably going to be encrypted unfortunately. And I also forgot to mention that all the FD's are still on the old system

If they have not popped up on the Peel P25 system...question is, what are they using and it may or may not be encrypted...

who knows!

Are they on the new GTAA system?
Someone out there must know....

I have not heard anywhere that they were going to the GTAA system..

Anything is possible.

If they did go to the GTAA, how could you tell...I have the new GTAA system programmed in, but of course it is all encrypted, and you just see the talkgroup ID....

I had a listen to the RCMP tower at the Airway Centre near CYYZ today for a few hours. I had my scanner in search mode and it never stopped once...Not for RCMP or anything else.

So not too sure about that system but no CBSA traffic there....
