• 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:

Only thing familiar about those freq's are that they are channels 38 , 39 and 43 in the UHF TV Broadcast band. I see that TVO also holds a license for ch 38.

Do you think it is some sort of in-house video for conferences and such ?

Now I wish I had an ICOM R-3 :wink:

You'd think they'd have a more sophisticated in house video conferencing setup if that is indeed what those frequencies are used for. We occaisionally do video conferencing here and generally (in fact I believe all the time) hard wired connections are used, depending on the situation, between us and the source (say, for example, the Toronto TOC). Our engineers trust nothing else.

Property Management usually wouldn't provide video conferencing? In building TV/Cable broadcasting for tenants??? Very Odd.

They might be for DTV, although all of the Toronto stations are on the CN Tower, but those could very well be backup transmitters. However, I don't recall any Toronto stations on those frequencies.

That being said, there's a whole whack of 608mHz allocations for Sunnybrook and St. Michael's Hospitals too... and you can listen to the silence all day long.
