I been hearing a single DMR channel tonight with lots of activity even up to just a few minutes ago.. 420.1625 CC 1.. heard TG 27 with references to Four Points.. the only thing licensed around here is Canquest out of Thorold and there is a Four Points Sheraton Hotel in Thorold.. but not sure what exactly this is.. I am only using a whip antenna too and this is coming in strong as well which is odd if it's coming from Thorold.. unless the conditions are up tonight..

Four Points Sheraton Hotel in Thorold

He said he was hearing DMR comms though, not analog....
I provided the link because Four Points Sheraton Hotel in Thorold is on this system, if he is hearing DMR comms maybe he can send us some more info on the information he is seeing on this frequency. And what he is using to listen to this frequency

I think most of that is in his first post...

420.1625 CC 1 TG 27 using a whip antenna

Does that frequency belong to one of the wide area systems (FleetConnect, GoTRBO etc?).... Although he mentioned it appeared to be a conventional channel... not trunked. Hmm.

420.1625

I have been listening to 420.1625 MHz down in Fort Erie and all I get is Canquest MPT-1327 Standard system noise on the frequency.

Strange that Canquest is still MPT227 down there where the Grimsby & Caledonia towers have been DMR Tier 3 for quite a while at least.

I have no idea what this is or if it's Canquest out of Thorold or what.. I have my DSD Plus running on it now.. and all I can tell it's some type of shuttle bus but that's about it..

Canquest

I can now confirm that TG- 27 is Canquest system and I am hearing Four Points Sheraton Hotel on it, it also comes up as a TIII system on frequency on 420.275, I will listen to all of the frequencies with DSD+ and post what I find

Steve

I will start another post with Canquest Info I find

Signal strength here west of Toronto is very strong for Niagara. Certainly it's DMR but hearing mention of not just Four Points but also of "Dixon" and "Embassy". It's a shuttle/valet company for sure based on the conversations. Embassy Suites and Dixon St. in Niagara Falls I'm assuming. Falls View Casino shuttle?

I have no idea either.. and yet it comes some strong up this side of the lake.. I checked the street view for Dixon St since it seems to be referenced at lot in the Falls for any type of business and the only one along that street is a old age home..

I'm very perplexed about Steve noting that he's logged MPT1327 traffic on 420.1625 from Thorold at his location in Fort Erie today, and yet Matt and I are hearing very strong DMR on the same frequency from what we guess for now is Niagara Falls from at least 3 times further away. I would have to think that Steve would hear the DMR or we'd hear the MPT activity, or both. Doesn't seem to be the case though.

Which brings me back to what I'd originally posted and then deleted, that being the names of places we're hearing. Coincidentally or otherwise there's a Four Points, Embassy Suites and a Dixon Road right by the airport in Mississauga. Could we actually be hearing a new service based up here rather than Niagara that just happens to have identical names???

I totally agree there something going on, I am hoping tomorrow when the system is busy I will be able to log more talkgroups and audio so I can answer some more questions, I will log all the audio and see who I am listening too tomorrow, I have never picked up any audio/talkgroups from Mississauga on this system.

I have to correct my previous, digging a bit deeper reveals there is no Embassy Suites near Pearson Airport. Back to Niagara Falls.... <G>
Sooner or later somebody on this frequency is going to say something really obvious. I'm wondering if the "offsite" they refer to is one of the parking lots between Dunn and Dixon Streets.

I might drive down to the Falls tomorrow and find the Four Points and scope out the place.. there is a Four Point Hotel also in Thorold/St Catharines at the 406/58 junction but I think it's not that one.. the one in NF seems to be more likely.. I have a bunch more DMR systems in Milton/Brampton that I want to verify too over the next couple days while I am off work..

I was just looking at Google Maps and noticed the Four Points in the Falls too is at the corner of Fallsview & Dixon.. the plot thickens.

Yes, I turned to Google Maps as soon as I started hearing street names. That was my confusion, hotel names and a Dixon St/Rd. involved, the same set-up as Mississauga but never a mention of the actual drop-off point that even gave a hint of a terminal at the airport.

There's talk of a "tent" at times, like there's a special event in the area of the Falls perhaps?

I am down in the Falls and don't hear a peep on the frequency so it must be up on the Toronto side by the airport..
