    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'm wondering if the freqs in the DB for this service are correct... All I ever hear on them is Elora and Guelph FD calls. The DB lists NOTL FD as 153.770 (dispatch) and 150.755 (PL110.9).
Are these working for anyone who listens to them regularly or are you using different freqs?

I believe the 153.770mhz has been long abandonded in Niagara and just the 150.755mhz is in use. I think there's another frequency in the 148mhz range too if I'm not mistaken.

Looking at TAFL shows that it is not licensed for NOTL.

I will remove it.

Thanks for pointing this out.

Looks like they have dropped the pl on 150.755, which might account for me not hearing things originally...
Heard a couple of calls today that came in with 5 bars and no pl was detected.
8.5kms from the tower and 12kms from the mobiles.

Thats one reason I like to run in SEARCH mode for PL tones, you may pick up MORE then you needed but sometimes its worth it.

Or run 2 idential frequencys , 1 with the known PL/DPL and another in SEARCH mode to get everything on that frequency.
