• 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:

okay i was hearing today on fleetnet zone 1 at the guelph tower. police common TG and different agencies were calling other agencies for radio tests. now my question is how is the transmission transmitted over the long distance and be able to be heard on ALL towers? for example you have someone in Orillia radioing Guelph PD or vice versa. Is the actual radio signal being sent to the local fleetnet tower(i.e Guelph Main) and then that tower rebroadcasting it DIRECTLY to The orillia fleetnet tower? or does it travel to that tower and all others by different means?

Different means such as optical fiber, microwave or copper.

Towers communicate with each other via a switch using the means above.

I heard London Comm Centre testing with the Orillia Comm Centre earlier today. I heard the comm's via 1OPS33 while the London Comm Centre indicated they were on 1TAC06.
