    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:

Single tone tone-outs work fine with Uniden, just make them both the same tone. What's the timing on them ... 1 sec/3 sec for the two-tone alerting and 6 or 8 sec for the single tone alerting?

will the Leduc Ambulance is 1sec/3sec. for Leduc Fire both tones are 6 or 8 secs long. i will have to time it next time I here it. for Leduc county fire I would say 8 sec. after posting I was thinking that if i set both tones the same it may work. i will have to do that and see if it works for me

The way it works for most tone paging systems, most two-tone paging uses a cadence of 1 second for the first tone (called the A tone), and 3 seconds for the 2nd (B) tone. Where you have a long single tone, that's usually a "long B" tone and is a group call. Many fire departments and other agencies using 2-tone paging will have one or more two-tone alert pairs for various things, like Duty Crew, Medic 1, Medic 2, Chief, and so on. The B tone for all these is often the same, and the "long B tone" is used as a group call, which will open up all those pagers as if they were getting individual pages.

I know that's kind of a long description that wasn't asked for, but it may help you understand what you're listening to. :)

will from what i know Leduc fire has been 2 long tones from the time I started scanning in 2002. when it is sounded every one response. there has only been one time that their was just 1 tone and that was for just the on call Platoon. since Leduc fire is now a fire and ems services with full time firemedics, if there is a fire call in the City limits there is 3 long tones. one for the full time firemedic then the normal 2 for the paid/oncall firefighters and this is on both Fire 1 and fire 2 (or the EMS channel).

I am now thinking that the first tone is for Platoon 1 and the second tone is for Platoon 2.

Is there any one out there that knows the fire tone out for the city of Leduc fire department. Thank you
From a few sources:

Today at 10:00 AM leduc City fire EMS dispatch was closed, doors locked, lights off. Leduc City fire EMS units will upgrade the radios to the new Strathcona system LTR system in early 2009.

Strathcona county is trying really hard to become a regional East of Edmonton dispatch center. They're doing a great job. Except for a few pockets towns they have pretty much taken over dispatch all the way to the Sask. boarder. Parkland county is doing the same West of Edmonton, dispatch all the way too the Yellowhead county east boundary and beyond.

Last week Mayerthorpe ambulance was dispatched by Parkland county
