    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.

I only saw 454.2625 used for Hamilton Cab. Looks like a stand-alone , rather than part of a system.
Blue Line had 451.6125 ,462.4625 ,462.8375 listed .
Hamilton Yellow Cab had 461.6125 ,463.0750 ,463.5750 listed.

Which freq. and which company had the "chopping sound" ?

Hamilton Cab N/A Taxi Service 454.2625 459.2625 PL 103.5
Hamilton Cab N/A Taxi Service 454.3375 459.3375 CSQ
Hamilton Yellow Cab N/A Taxi Service 463.5750 468.5875 CSQ

There is another taxi company on 453.1625/458.1625 with a PL of 67.0. I haven't been able to figure out what company this is. Doing a look up on the TAFL show that the frequency is licensed to Glentel (a radio rental company). Those are the ones that I have verified being used.. Blue Line looks like they use data terminals for dispatching as on all those of the fequencies listed have some type of data tone.

I had 451.6125 listed to Blue Line Transportation on Industry Canada, and that is the one where I hear the "chopping sound".

Forgive me as I am new to this but I've noticed alot of you refer to TAFL, what may I ask is this.
Thanks

That is Blue Line Cab as well as the other 2 that Mike posted.. the chopping sound is a data signal that is used for the terminals in the cabs that they use for dispatching.

Industry Canada administers telecom and freq. allocation. Spectrum Direct has an on-line data base to search known as Technical and Administrative Frequency Lists. (TAFL)

I'll put up a link and you can explore : http://sd.ic.gc.ca/engdoc/main.jsp

also when Spectrum Direct's site is unavailable , you may wish to keep this one handy (copy-cat site)
