• 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:

It was one of their engineering channels.*It must have just gone live as it was on my search list for a while now and started getting hits*yesterday. *I am wondering if any of the other Northumberland*departments might start popping up on it. TG300 seems to be a odd setup if it is just*Cobourg fire.

I did a search on IC last weekend*for all the data for 30*km of my location and imported it into my 563HP*and just let it scan all on*them. It is easy to pick out the Work channels with all the snowplowing going on. last night*it stopped on one of the Cramaha channels (152.645) and two guys were testing, so*it sounded like it was*being turned up, but*they could have been just been working on it.

I know that the fire*has being dispatched from Peterborough for awhile now, but I am still surprised that they have so many frequencies on the go. Maybe this might be a sign on consolidation on the start. The 149 frequency is licensee across the county, so maybe*we'll have to wait and see who else jumps on.

That is the one I use most of the time as well, but the data is a year old now, and wont be updated since they trashed the TAFL database files. I did managed to download the cvs file from IC, when it works, and imported it. I did notice that if you do small searches, the file export does work. But as usual, the site is useless this weekend as its giving the 500 error.

But Jonathan's site is still very useful.

The new antennas are for amateur radio repeater VE3KFR on 145.330 MHz. The installation was in October 2016 and is the cover story of the January 2017 issue of The Canadian Amateur from Radio Amateurs of Canada (RAC). They are using separate antennas for transmit and receive, which is why two more antennas appeared on the tower. It's located at 44.284114, -77.916384 if you want to take a look on Google Maps. The top antenna is for Trent Hills Fire on 155.670 MHz.
