• 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:

Hearing an unknown PD operating on Provincial Common (142.7700) in the London area. Comms are pretty weak and for the most part I can only hear the dispatch side of things.... Not sure who they are though. Dispatch is calling themselves, well 'Dispatch' and a few minutes ago she asked units to switch to what sounded like the 'Uniform' channel. It's not Strathroy-Caradoc, it's not London PS and I'm reasonably sure it's not St. Thomas. I was thinking maybe Chatham-Kent but I don't think they call themselves 'Dispatch'.

Anyone else hearing anything?

Oh.. and who ever it is they are obviously having issues with their primary system. Heard Dispatch say they were on the phone with the radio people.

Iv herd CKPS officers ask for Dispatch.. But thats just the 101 to Dispatch type things. As for a talkgroup called dispatch.. Nopers. Not CKPS anyways. Their main channel is Operatnl and Querry.
CK fire dont even have a "dispatch" channel. Just fire 1-5.

Dont think Sarnia PS has a "Dispatch" channel either. Woodstock perhaps?

Woodstock - possible. They have been known to have problems with their system.
Wingham - are they not OPP?
Kitchener - That's Waterloo Regional Police. Did you here 9 code being used as WRP uses the 9 code?

Wingham does have it's own police force. As for 9 codes, didn't hear any of those.... Heard a few plates being run. One came back to a London address, the other to a Chatham address.

Haven't heard anything else since my initial post.
