• 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 live in British Columbia, Canada on the West Coast just north of Washington State. While we don't have "counties" here per se, we do have Regional Districts. That being said, however, due to the way the RR database is set up I am happy to use the County system.

Can anyone please tell me how I go about submitting / creating a "new" county?

The RRDB doesn't seem to have that option available and if it doesn't match what is already in the RRDB I would either (A) Be unable to submit the data that I have or (B) Submit the data but have it be listed incorrectly / in the wrong geographical area.

I have read through the forum threads to try and find the answer to no avail so thought I would post a new thread to pose the question.

Looking forward to sharing all the updated emergency service information with the rest of the RRDB world!


Cheers!

Missing

For example:

Campbell River is a large city (Now) and is located north of the Comox Valley. It is also the main dispatch hub now for emergency services providers in the area and is provided by a private entity called The North Island 911 Corporation. They dispatch areas throughout Campbell River and Area including the Islands and also dispatch everything to the North right up to Alert Bay, Newcastle, Quadra Island, Savory Island, Powell River (Sunshine Coast) and then south into the (Comox Valley) area including Black Creek, Courtenay, Comox, Cumberland, etc.

I have been here for several days now and have aquired all the new frequencies and would like to share them however, Campbell River doesn't fall under any of the "counties" listed.

I propose calling it "Campbell River and Area" as it is the last major center heading north on the Island Highway before it goes back down to a 2 lane highway and is also the junction point for highway 28 heading west over to Gold River (which they also dispatch).

Ideas??

I will put it under Strathcona as after looking at the map URL you sent me it seems to make the most sense alsthough the "locals" refer to it as Campbell River and Area and said that Strathcona is rarely used to describe the area.

Cheers!
