Hello all,

I just noticed this evening I am not receiving any control channel data on the Alectra's Provoice system here in Mississauga. They have been getting quieter and quieter recently i heard I few poorly decided transmissions from them last week, but other than that, that's been all.

They for sure.still use some communications system, always thought they would migrate to Peel P25 system someday.

Alectra in York Region is DMR conventional.. and Alectra here in Hamilton is DMR Con+ (which serves both here and St Catharines).. so I always thought they would go DMR of some type.

I did a search and came across these UHF freqs: They are all recently license, as of March 3rd 2020. Based on the transmission type, they are MotoTRBO. I've Programmed them in and set them as digital.

I put them in as two different systems. One system as DMR Trunk and another system as DMR One Frequency just to see what may develop.

Based on the +5 MHz offests in the pairing steps the upper 4 are going to be inputs.

It would make sense.. Does Ontario Hydro Brampton still use Peel's P25 system? They where also part of this merger between Powerstream/Horizon/Enersource back in 2017 and became part of Alectra as well.

Matt
Yes Hydro One Brampton is still on Peel's P25 system. They have those 6 TG's but always use 3050. That's the dispatch channel. Very rarely, I have heard them use 3053 as a working channel. As for the others, I have never heard them active since Peel's P25 system came online in 2014.

2nd straight day and still no activity on their frequencies...

I have updated the database due to the fact there is no longer control channel data on Site 17 - 937.350.

Certainly the end of era for EDACS. There are not too many left in the country.

For the life of me I can't find the Alectra St Catharines site in the Sentinel Canada Database so I can make a favorite list, anyone point me in the right direction I would like to see if I can pick it up in Fort Erie.
