• 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 am looking for any frequencies in Estevan Sask. especially the emergency frequencies.
only frequency I find is city police on 854.9375.
I thought all police fire and ems went to p25.
If someone has a saskatchewan p25 file for a bc996xt would be much appreciated

We don't have any data in the Database indicating that Estevan Police Service is on the PPSTN P25 system. However, Estevan EMS is. Unknown which talkgroups Estevan Fire Rescue is using. Just plug in the frequencies, control channels and search for yourself. It's the only way that we're going to find out a lot of information for these communities.

Yeah I looked in the database last night. I just got my new bc996xt yesterday and this is my first P25 programming, just not sure if I'm doing it right as I don't hear too much yet, only like 2 transmissions in a day. was hoping I could get confirmation I'm doing this right.

I would suggest getting a Premium Subscription to the site here, downloading a software like FreeScan and downloading the system info directly off of the database and into your scanner.

I'm thinking something is wrong with the programming. You should be hearing a fair amount of traffic, be it Government of Saskatchewan, RCMP, EMS, FIre or SaskPower, etc.

I have some general frequencies from the Estevan area. If you are interested in downloading them you can click here. It is in Excel format.

I'm looking forward to having a scanner dedicated to local traffic including farmers, etc.
