• 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 started another thread awhile ago looking for others who may be from Northern Ontario and it kinda got off track and so it was locked. The object of my thread was to see who might be on here from Northern Ontario. We are a huge district and I was curious to see how many of us up here listen to Coms. I know I am being bias to others i.e. Southern Ontario but I already know there are a ton of listeners down there, I am most interested in Zone 4 listeners and even zone 3 listeners because they are pretty close to us.

I am from Zone 4, about 350kms north east of Thunder Bay. I am asking this question because I would like to see our database increase with info. I have submitted some info about our zone and would love to know if anyone else has more info. If you do not like to post, PM me the info and I will post it. Please, if you do not mind lets keep this thread on topic, I do not want it locked up. It is nice seeing people from the north who enjoy my hobby.

A "roll call" thread is a great idea.

However when it wanders off into multiple topics that may interest people from other areas, it becomes pointless.

Keep in mind that you'll sometimes get a faster answer to a question from people in other areas of Ontario rather then just relying on the people who only read the Northern Ontario thread.

With that in mind, Northern Ontario Scannists check in!

I visit the Latchford area every summer and always have a scanner or two with me.

I'm from Timmins (Zone 3). When I have some information, I update my county (Cochrane). I'm the one who did most of the updates on Cochrane county page and, I wrote the WIKI . If I have info, i usually share it.

I'm in New Liskeard (Zone 3). As with rc1990, I try to keep my district (Temiskaming) up to date with info as I find it out. I didn't write the WIKI page on my district, but I have helped fill in some of the Quebec RENIR system as I can hear a couple of the towers, being so close to the Ontario/Quebec border.

It is great to see some Northerners that are monitoring coms. I wrote the Wiki for Thunder Bay/Greenstone and would love to add more info so keep chiming in. The more people who submit the better this site can be. So far I have only one person from Zone 4 besides myself. I hope there are more. Keep on post'n Zone 3 people, looks like there are a lot of you.
