Recently I am hearing SQ in W. Quebec on a number of channels including 166.680, 167.340 and a few others, but the activity seems less than I recall in past. So, they are not completed converted.

SQ was still on VHF for most of Côte-Nord as of December. Sept-Îles and Baie-Comeau were for sure.

Hi. What did happen with SQ frequency in Saint-Hyacinthe? It was open and when police found a dead man on viaduc last year, the frequency switched inactive next day and now I can't hear them with my BCD436HP scanner.

How can I know if SQ switched for renir P25 encrypted or not?

Because the SQ is investigating the SPVM so they don't want the SPVM to hear them. Likewise, SPVM is encrypted now because they don't want the SQ to be able to hear them.

As for the Eastern townships, they appear to have upgraded their portables to P25 XTS radios and using 800MHz vehicular reapters. There is still activity on the analog channel so they are probably not fully migrated yet

I believe the new mobile repeaters inside the SQ cars are on the 700 Mhz band.

You can tell they are migrating to RENIR when there are no more data chirps (Status signalling) and that they don't have encryption anymore. Also the analog radio transmissions actually tend to sound better with the new Motorola radios than the old Ericsson Rangr/Orion they replaced. My understanding is that they just choose between the RITP and RENIR zones on the mobile radios until migration is completed.

Aa for Montreal police, I noticed the SPVM investigations haven't migrated off their Aegis encrypted surveillance channels off the 408-418 Mhz band yet.. I can hear them right now on 418.2525. My guess is that they are still using their old digital radios because of financial reasons or want to remain off SERAM for other reasons (maybe to avoid compromising investigations) ?

Cheers

Default Some SQ still active in the clear

I thought ALL SQ was gone to RENIR as of 2017?
I was playing with the "ZIP" (Postal Code) search on my 436HP yesterday and was picking up SQ in the clear on

154.740 LAVAL (Autoroute 13 calls)
166.680 VAUDREUIL / DORION / PINCOURT
154.680 VALLEYFIELD
167.340 NAPIERVILLE 156.7 ctcss

Seems all local patrols ..no Autoroutiers EXCEPT for the LAVAL freq

has anyone heard any other areas we can still monitor??

Baie-Comeau (on Route 389), Fermont, Port-Cartier, Relias-Gabriel (Single Resident Unit), and Schefferville are all still on VHF Conventional.

I was until recently (and may be still the case) hearing activity on some 166/167 repeaters, e.g. 166.830, 167.04, 167.340 etc. mostly weaker so a bit far out from Gatineau; also on 154.950.

Yup. Same here for the Pontiac region as well.
