• 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:

Ummmm..... kind of need a little more information. You could be just about anywhere.... Are you talking about Sim11 on Fleetnet in Ontario? If so, it's analog.

In the future, you should likely post in the Eastern Ontario forum. Likely get better results.

Don't forget too, it's a NFM channel, not an FM ch. not that it matters.

Oh and Forts, I think you meant the Eastern Canada Forum, but isn't that where we're at right now? Or was this somewhere else before. I don't know, I just saw this posting now.

The old NOR Spectra radios that were upgraded/reprogrammed to talk on SIM11 aren't narrowband...again, not that it makes a whole lot of difference.

NFM actually does make a difference

Testing is being done in the Timmins area now... I programmed my scanner with both FM and NFM and I found that NFM elliminates the echoing noises caused by the microwave setup and the modulation is much clearer. Just thought I'd throw that in. OPP just started radio testing on-line today, and the MTO has been on-line for approx. 2 weeks.

Never really checked the database but what I've got indicates that Sim 1 and Sim 11 are both FM channels not NFM.

I'm not sure what you are hearing echos but microwaves will not cause echos.
