• 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:

Has anyone heard anything about Oxford County rural fire switching to MotoTRBO? I've been trolling thru some TAFL data and there are numerous VHF frequencies licensed to Oxford Fire with the TRBO 7K60 emission type.

I was out there a week ago. I saw what looked like a HT750 hand held by one fire fighter.

Ill take a listen on 152.675 when I go through the area this weekend

I don't believe anything has changed... Just wondering if it's on the horizon perhaps.

Yes, they are definitely still currently analog.... Just wondering if anyone had heard anything regarding a migration to digital (as suggested by TAFL data). Seems to be the popular thing in my area. Elgin County switched to a simulcast TRBO system last year, and Lambton County is in the process now. From what I've heard Middlesex is keeping an eye on it too, but it won't be anytime soon.

Go to the countys website and look over the minutes of there council meetings. I'm sure there's probably some discussion in them. Usually a good spot to find out what's going on.

Coverage testing was being performed this afternoon. Seems to be a connect plus system with and ID of 212. 152.585 is site 212-1, and shows a neighbor of 212-2. All comms were on TG 200, Color code 1, Slot 1.If anyone can verify, I will put this info through to be added.

What you were listening to was the Horizon Utilities system in Hamilton.. Horizon Utilities Corporation Connect Plus (212) Trunking System, Hamilton, Ontario - Scanner Frequencies.. Site 2 is in St Catharines.. All the comms on that system are encrypted..
