• 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 may be blind, but buried somewhere are there the frequencys for VIA Rail. I know that on the train itself the staff have radios to communicate with each other. So there is a radio system there at least, do they use the radios to communicate with the stations too? Would be nice to listen in on them while i am waiting at the station to know how late they are.

Thanks in advance

As for the stations - 160.2000 as well. Although they don't use it much, it is what gives the station a heads up when the train is about to arrive (the engineer will announce when they are 10 minutes out from a station)

I have heard them while on my way home via the GO Train. They often speed by us going to Oshawa and they do use 160.200 to announce their arrival into Oshawa. Usually when they hit Durham Jct.
