• 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:

I have a submission for Zone 4 that I can't process due to lack of info.

Talkgroup 8544 has been discovered in use by the OPP in the Thunder Bay area, but the submission lacks the details of which detachment or specific area it may be long to.

If anyone knows more details please submit the information.
Thanks.

8544 is the 4OPS01, the main OPP talk group for Thunder Bay and region, extending from Nipigon to Dyment and including Atikokan and Rainy River for area-wide broadcasts.

Chances are it's 4OPS21 and is a combined talkgroup for several detachments.

You can generally use Zone 2 and Zone 3 as a template for the rest of the zones except Zone 1.

Zone 1 is setup somewhat different as it was the first Zone to be implemented.

Using what they learned from Zone 1, they implemented the other Zones differently.

O.K. Mike, but can it be included as a new talkgroup, so I can hear it next time there, as for now I have had to put in the voice channels as conventionals so I can hear it.

Thanks,

G.S.

I was just thinking, chances are 4OPS21 is probably patched with 4OPS01 which is one of the Detachment talkgroups. I'm sure there's at least one or more other Detachment talkgroups patched in as well.

The older Uniden scanners don't display patches correctly and this is why the group would show up as 4OPS01.

Now that the general area of use has been identified, it should go into the database.
