• 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 dont understand why this talkgroup does not affiliate in an consistent manner with the Hamilton area tower.
It seems that this talkgroup appears and then dissapears for what seems like months on end. I know that the actual EMS units would have to be in a location that they would be able to affiliate with the tower but on a daily basis these units do go to Hamilton area hospitals.

I monitor this tower on my scanner & using T88 and would love to know why this talkgroup is not on Charlton more consistenly.

They would probably switch to a Hamilton City talkgroup when coming into town.
They normally do but that IS not what I meant when I asked the question.

It seems that talkgroup 35632 affiliates with Charlton for weeks on end then dissapears for weeks, even months. Why would it be so hit & miss if there is constant EMS activity from the areas the talkgroup covers? I would figure it would be a staple like Halton on 35776 or 35600 Ham City E
