    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:

From my office in Mississauga I have been monitoring this frequency and have been hearing what sounds like a mother and child talking to each other in Spanish. They use a CTCSS of 167.9. From looking at TAFL it doesn't look to be licensed to anyone around here (Square One Area). Can anyone else pick this up, and what is being said/ what is it used for.

Not to interesting to listen to, but curious as to the 5 W's of its usage

Alot of the times if a new customer wants to try out Commercial radio. The Radio companies will provide them with a temporary frequency which will not be registered to anyone for them to use and see if they require anything extra or changes until they register a frequency.. It may be the same or not!

I have been listening (from NW Toronto) and have only heard what sounds to me like security doing perimeter patrols and door/gate checks ( in English).

Is it a repeater or simplex?

The Mississauga comms we definately simplex. I will see what I hear on this frequency from my Home (Yonge@Queens Quay, 21st Floor).

Could be some local store selling hand-helds without licensing being done.
