• 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:

You may find them in the Industry Canada TAFL/ALS database, if they
are licensed. You can try frequency range searches, licencee name etc.
If you do the latter it could show up under a numbered company but
try anyway. Some use split band pairs (30.xxx/154.xxx or 35.xxx/151.xxx
etc.) Also, UHF pairs are used such as 464.0125/469.0125, at very low
power.

They can also use the unlicensed 902-928MHz band. Try searching
902-904 and 920-922 first. They may use wideband FM which will sound
on a regular FM scanner (unless you can change mode to WFM).

I know for a fact that many Timmy's locations in the Toronto area use 902.3 MHz........You may want to try that one first. It may be the same in your area as well.

Try 30.8450 or 154.700. Thats Campbellford Tims.
You sure about that? It would be 30.840 (must be that Close-Call again...)
and usually paired with 154.570 or some other frequency but not 154.700.

. . .why listen to Tim Hortons Drive Thru's???
Simply because you can , I suppose. :)
Sometimes there is zilch going on and you can amuse yourself in the parking lot by hearing what someone has ordered.
( Like with McDonald's , when a fat guy orders three Big Mac's and a Diet Coke):roll:
Consider it a guilty pleasure , most people don't like to say they do it ,but probably have at one point or another. What ever turns your crank , I guess.

It is the equivalent of channel surfing while watching TV , never know what you may come across.

You guys have to leave home to listen to the dead hockey player? :)

I am lucky enough to hear the one closest to my house, seems they use 469.0125 with a PL of 151.4hz except when they transmit it changes to 136.5hz. :)

I am sure somebody with a negative 5mhz offset on a wide open dual-band rig could have some fun with the info I posted.

Ooopsy. :)

On a slow radio day i can always get a chuckle out of listening to the antics of people who have no idea people can hear them talk about their customers and fellow employs.

Did he supersize that diet coke (haha) ? In my early days of scanning, I was listening to McD's (and watching) a drive through in progress. As mom was trying to order, a back seat full of kids were screaming what they wanted. She was yelling her order so loud that I didn't even need the scanner to hear her. I think I'll give the fast food windows another try.

Most of the Timmy's around here use 902.3000 with new "HME" headsets, they have 2 channels, one for the drive-thru, and one as a store intercom....

All Tim Hortons using the new headsets also have the programming/charging station, so all they have to do is pop the headsets in the station to reprogram them...
