    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:

Hi all,

As I've been running Unitrunker for a week or two solid, 24/7, on Calgary's Smartzone radio system, I've found at least one group of new users.

Operating in P25 digital clear, it seems the provincial courts are now joining Calgary Fire, Calgary EMS, Calgary Police, Rocky View Fire, Rocky View Protective Services, Bighorn Emergency Services, the ENMAX utility, and Calgary Airport Authority on the system. I haven't identified the talkgroups 100%, but they're in the 52000 block.

So here's the gist of what services are using 753f, as far as I have been able to tell. (There are some minor exceptions to the talkgroup limits listed below.)

Calgary Fire (and other fire services): decimal talkgroups 48 to 15568
Calgary EMS: decimal talkgroups 16400 to 17232
Calgary Police: decimal talkgroups 32784 to 35024 and 48112 to 51984
ENMAX: decimal talkgroups 35056 to 35664
Calgary Airport Authority: 64016 to 64208
Alberta Provincial Courts: 52000 to 52112

As I get more info, I'll update the database. Anyone else who gets anything, please submit it.
