• 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:

Been monitoring the Town of Oakville MotoTRBO system the last couple days and have noticed some changes and possibly even some abnormalities. Firstly, talkgroups 11, and 13 have not been active whatsoever. Talkgroup 12 has been active and is indeed Care - A- Van.

Secondly, I have noticed talk groups 101, 102, and 104 pop up and are defiantly transit related operations. From what I've been hearing on 101 and 102 are units talking with control. 104 sounds like supervisors I've heard specifics like "meet with unit xxxx at Bronte GO." Maybe 101 and 102 are channels 1 and 2?. On top of that, Talkgroup 15 popped up and the driver of a care - a - van was talking with a supervisor. So one could assume this would be care - a - van supervisors?

Thirdly, Talkgroup 44 also popped up and like 101,102, and 104, are not in the database. There were two guys talking about vehicles parked in front of driveways and things along those lines and that they would have a look. I find this confusing because last time I checked, Oakville bylaw was on Halton P25 system unless they have migrated?

I don't monitor the system often and found this discovery interesting.

Hopefully I can pinpoint some more users

Alright, submitted my findings moments ago. Was having computer issues last night so hopefully I didn't submit the info twice. We should keep the thread open for others who wish to discuss there findings on talkgroups and system info as well.

I'll "sticky" it for you to keep it near the top of the forum page. Once posting activity subsides, we'll let it free fall.

Many systems show licenses where there are base radios. The Halton EDACS system (and it's replacement) showed all kinds of locations in the TAFL, from Town works yards to fire halls to Conservation Authority offices. Just to be clear, I wasn't implying that 711 Appleby was site 4, only that it's the only non-Oakville location I saw. Rattlesnake Point is Milton of course, not Burlington or Oakville.

Going from memory I'm pretty certain that Wyecroft Road is the home of Oakville Transit.
