• 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:

If you give 142.770 a listen, you will notice a persistent "noise" being transmitted for seconds at a time, then it breaks and shortly resumes again.

Kind of annoying when you are trying to scan. :mad:

You might just be experiencing some localized noise or interference. I don't have anything like that in my area. In fact I heard Deep River do a radio check this morning on there with OPP with no problems.

All I can think of is noise , or what is referred to as radio "birdies"
Other then that the keying might be from the input going through the repeater triggering 142.770 to output what it receives. Since there is no tone. OPC is csq.
Take a listen on 138.750, which would be the input to see if you hear anything, I don't know what the sensitivity of the repeaters receiver is, but it could be picking up noise on certain towers, while others it doesn't.

So, it is fairly wide spread. Guelph to Oshawa have been reported so far. The easterners in Ontario don't seem to be bothered with it.

I'm going to wear out my Enter button doing those Temp Avoid's daily. :(

Are you still getting the data TX's? I stopped receiving them on the 3 channels since the PM has left the area for Sudbury.

I heard something similar when someone was running a DVRS on an analog system. the DVRS handshake (a short P25 burst) would key every few seconds. I wonder if this might be the noise heard?

OPC has been quiet in the London area no bursts heard.
