• 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:

Is it possible to monitor the Toronto Fire Services from Niagara Falls, Ont? I have a Antenna tower that is reasonably high. If i add a 800 mhz Antenna will i hear Toronto

I doubt it.
enter in the control channels and if you can hear the noise you might have a shot.
I have been down to the falls a few times and have never heard TPS' system.

I think you have a shot at it. Remember that it is just across the lake. If you put up a beam you may end getting it!
Take care

I believe a member in Newcastle, 70km east of the south site can get it. Hopefully they will reply and let you know what they are using.

Personally I can recieve it clearly from inside my house in whitby on a 246T with a diamond RH77CA, at a distance of 49km.

Remeber how helpful the lake can be in allowing the signal to travel.

Goodluck,

Ian
