• 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:

I picked up XPT beaconing on 462.4500 which is weak here; according to TAFL may be at Grenville Que. near
Lachute (also just north of Hawkesbury Ont.). Not unusual for TAFL to mangle names, in shows as "Greenville".
Appears to be licensed to Jalec (full list):

Also found new Cap+ on 422.850 licensed to Rock Networks (new around here...) plus other frequencies:

This is probably not the right thread for this but I am having difficulty finding the system this Frequency belongs to. Is it a new system? I am near Carling/Pinecrest.
452.2375 CC 2 Site 2 Net 202
TGID 11010031 some kind of boom operator was using this morning.

I discovered it is the Camp Fortune tower on the GOTRBO Network. Already well identified. Why searching the DB didn't show anything is puzzling me. I went through the systems one by one and found it that way.

Search the RR DB for Network (System) ID and system type (202 and DMR) and it shows NXDN system (OnQue) and TRBO (GoTRBO).

Do we have enough information now on this Rock Network system in order to have it submitted to the database?

Has anyone found any active talkgroups with it yet?
Nothing more than some idle bursts on a couple of frequencies, same as Mike reports. Not much excitement.

Just wondering out loud where all the new user activity is going to come from e.g. Cumberland area. This morning I checked
GoTRBO, OnQue sites for that area, activity approximately dick; some action on Turris. When a new player comes on board, have
to wonder about viability, with usage diluted over so many systems.
