• 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:

Alberta info : Can-TF2
•Multi-band radios covering 400MHz, 700MHz, 800MHz, UHF, VHF and P25 frequencies
•Portable repeater units in 400MHz and 800MHz frequencies
•Satellite Radios
•Radio interconnect hardware to link radio systems
•Satellite Data and Voice technology
•Wireless Mesh Network system, including both portable and fixed systems allowing for a secure network to stream live video and instant messaging from the incident site, back to the command post

Canada Task Force 2 is on the Alberta First Responder Radio Communications System (AFRRCS). AFRRCS is a province-wide two-way radio network that allows first responder agencies (fire fighters, police, ambulances etc.) in the province to use the same radio communications technology. It ensures first responders can more easily communicate with one another and improve coordination among agencies.

Sorry, what's unknown about CANTF2 and CANTF3?

CANADA TASK FORCE 2

CANTF3 doesn't appear to have a webpage any more, but they're run by the City of Toronto.

CANTF2 is indeed on AFRRCS. In the past I've also heard them on both the Calgary system and on 400MHz frequencies that were retained by the city after Fire moved to the Calgary trunk system. But I would wager that going forward, the majority of public safety agencies in Alberta, CANTF2 included, are going to be on AFRRCS for in-province communications. When deployed out-of-province, I suspect CANTF2 will use either the local authority's radio system or some of the mobile repeaters their page mentions.

FYI - CANTF2 is not just Calgary Fire (or Calgary public safety agencies). There's involvement from all kinds of agencies throughout the province.

One last thing - Halifax was CANTF5, but disbanded. There are rumors from a year or so ago that Montreal is trying to spin up as CANTF5 now.
