    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 don't believe that a particular dispatch channel is assigned to a particular fire station.

You will have to program all 16 in.

TFS has, if I remember correctly, 6 dispatchers. One for each command and two relief/overflow dispatchers.

You might have better luck monitoring the individual command talkgroups. Not sure though, as it's been a while since I've lived in T.O.

You could program them all, then monitor to find out which stations/commands are normally associated to which talkgroup(s).

http://www.torontofirepics.com/ has some good info on how the department is structured. ...and some cool pictures...

Hope this helps, and good luck!
