• 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 currently have a PCR1000, but I am trying to find out what is out there to listen do in digital mode.

I have been searching RR but cant seem to locate possible groups in ontario. I'm sure there must be some out there. I'm in the Hamilton,Toronto, Halton area.

Can anyone help me out with this? Are these Trunking systems?

What would I be able to listen to if I get a digital scanner and where can I find this info?

Thanks in advance

Mike

- OPP and MTO Carrier Enforcement use digital (trunked)
- Peel and Toronto has a few intel talk groups which also use digital (trunked)
- There's a few OPP and CISO conventional channels that are digital as well

All the mentioned agencies above can be found in the database on this website.

Toronto is encrypted I'd say 50% of the time. Peel is rarely encrypted.
Peel's Intel talkgroup is generally encrypted 100% of the time and the other channels see little to no use at all.

That is more along the lines of what i have found. I guess the point is, the only clear and reliable p25 is OPP, MTO and GO Transit.

To answer the OP's question
yes a trunked digital scanner will be needed to follow them correctly. Almost any digital scanner (as long as it has a digital card) should work.

In the case of Go transit you will need a newer scanner that does 9600 baud (pro96 396 etc etc)

I guess I must be listening at the wrong times. Heard quite the operation not too long ago, over the span of 5 or 6 hours around Dixie Road...all in the clear.

I was listening to that too...about 2 weeks ago I think? I believe it was on TG 16464.
