It seems like Metrolinx has changed the frequencies on the Mitchell's Corners tower for the East Simulcast.

410.062500
410.212500d
410.337500
410.512500
410.737500* <-- Deleted
411.162500
411.287500a
411.562500a
412.287500a <-- Added
413.462500
413.512500 <-- Deleted
413.587500

Can anyone confirm if the other towers on East Simulcast are showing the same? Just want to make sure before I update the DB.

Hmmm.. Very interesting. Can the towers have different frequency scheme and still operate as simulcast?
No. Every site in the same simulcast group must transmit absolutely identical information. I'd suggest trying DSD+...Unitrunker is a piece of junk that false decodes all the time.

What I am seeing is that what is called East Simulcast stretches from Oshawa to Hamilton. (maybe needs a change to South?)

West Simulcast has York and Simcoe Counties (maybe it is really North?)

The fringe service areas Niagara, Peterborough, Kitchener areas look relatively the same.

Just did a check here.

Both 410.5375 (West Simulcast) and 410.2125 (East Simulcast) are coming off the CN Tower.

East is showing neighbours of West and Peterborough.

And only three sets of frequencies.
With site 1 (East) I'm still receiving 410.5125, yet it is not on the new roster.

I have yet to log 411.0375, 411.1625, 411.2875, 412.2875,413.5125, 413.7125

Maybe rush hour will be different, though.

I have been monitoring the new channels and the new groupings for at least two months now and there has been no change. At least on the east end. None of the new sites out here have been activated yet. Just Mitchell's Corners, Uxbridge and Peterborough running at the moment still.

Just ran Pro96Com on Mitchell's Corners and Peterborough and nothing has changed on the channel list nor the adjacent sites..

Maybe:

Central: Toronto-Hamilton-Oshawa
North: York/Simcoe
West: Kitchener
South: Niagara
East: Clarington-Peterborough

Just a thought..

:D
