• 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:

My in laws owned a cottage in Ferndale. Since they sold it we haven't been up there alot.

Fleetnet for Dyers Bay, Whiarton and Owen Sound had activity. The MOH on London north had activity. If you are on Georgian Bay you might be able to scan some of Muskoka and Simcoe, Parry Sound as well as Grey County stuff.

Would Orillia be too far?
I dunno. Why don't you check out the frequencies for the area and throw them on and see where and what happens. I do remember 1x we were driving around Barrow Bay and I was able to monitor the Env Canada frequency for that area.

I vaguely remember that I was able to hear a few Fleetnet towers in whatever the northern zone is for Parry Sound and Muskoka. I was probably using a Bearcat 296 and a Diamond 77RSMA antenna in the car.

I was also able to occasionally monitor Michigan Noaa weather radio in Old Woman's River/Black Creek. And 1x in Tobermory I once was able to snag a Fleetnet tower on Manitulin. EMS were parched with either Elliot Lake or Sudbury and the ETA was 2 hours!!

I'm guessing that you will not have problems getting tjeWiarton tower and maybe Owen Sound, Dyers Bay and maybe one in Bruce County. You'll hear Grey County, South Bruce and the 6 Romeo units on the Peninsula. They are patched together IIANM.

Let me know how you make out. What kind of antenna are you using and I'm curious if the 6Romeo units police your home area. If so are they using 6 Romeo with 7's as their soft ID
