• 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:

Hi all,

My trip to NF is a go, so I'm heading out next week from Calgary. I stop twice, in Toronto and Halifax, and my Toronto stop is going to be a couple of hours each time. Which site(s) would be best to pick up Fleetnet from inside the airport terminal with? I don't anticipate going outside the terminal, let alone beyond airport property, so I don't imagine multiple sites will be worth my effort. Is Mississauga the best choice? I've been out of the Toronto area for so long that I forget the names of the communities/regions around YYZ (at least those which would correspond to the towers listed in the Fleetnet entry in the RRDB ;)).

Thanks in advance!

Well, you're physically closest to the Mississauga site (Site 9), but the Toronto site (Site 40) should also come in pretty good.

Also there are a bunch of Pearson only trunked systems with low power you could work on ID'ing. The Air Canada system seams to be team based with teams/TG's assigned to various flights. CASTSA uses M/A Comm LP-200's on likely a 900mhz EDACS systems. with the rest of the "official's" at the airport on Peel regions Motorola trunked system.

Indeed - besides the voice monitoring I intend to do, I will have Unitrunker present to do at least a few minutes' worth of data gathering on each of any control channels I can 'hear'. I just want to be careful that I don't raise suspicions or look like some kind of mobile intel post sitting in the food court of T3. :)

Thanks guys, you will hear from me again on this, I'm sure.

I'm not sure which system CATSA is on right now, but I can tell you 100% for sure that they have at least some XTS5000's there. They are flashed for Digital, with encryption...although I've never heard digital or encryption on the peel system.
