    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:

Our location

He is referring to the following feed;
York County, Ontario (ON) Live Police, Fire, and EMS Scanners on RadioReference.com

York Region, Ontario, Canada.
I too am disappointed the feed has been taken down. For a few days there was a notice saying they are testing something, then disappeared. :(

I miss listening to what was going on in my backyard too. :)

Thanks for any information on when and if it will return.

Yes but...

There were 3 feeds available. The Richmond Hill fire department was one of them. York Regional Police was another option and so was the OPP (Ontario Provincial Police)

Now all we are left with is the fire department. :(

Yes i am referring to York Region, Ontario,Canada....I am hearing rumors that the feed was taken down because of a recent York Region Police line of duty death....the radio transmission of the officer that died was released to the media and had the conversation between the officer and dispatch.

It was a sad day,the officer died just down the road from me....it was a senseless death that didn't need to happen.

You can buy a scanner and start one.

Sorry for taking so long. I am pretty sure you're right. It was the Styles case when he got run down by the kids in the mini van.

I called Durham Radio and asked if the had a handheld scanner that would allow me to listen to YRP
I ended up buying the "PSR800 GRE Digital Triple Trunking Handheld Scanner with Built in Database"

Very easy to use. Cost $548.84 but worth it.

any word on the York Region scanner feed? I'm pretty sure they haven't gone encrypted yet..

it seems everywhere else is available except York Region, Ontario

:(

I think donations would be made to anybody who could get this feed back up and running
