• 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:

Hello all;

Heard CG activity on 161.900 (Prescott?) about marine congestion reported between Simcoe/Couchiching today....wondering if anyone else has much luck with and how common CG activities are in Ontario, I guess with Lake Ontario and the Trent in particular...it seems they have quite the broadcast range.

I found these other #'s...anyone hear much on them?

161.650
157.175
157.100

among many others...

I hear the US CG out of Buffalo on 157.100 . The others you have listed not from my location.

Coast Guard stuff I do monitor is 156.850 ,157.050,157.075 ,157.100 ,157.125 (also hear Toronto Police Marine Unit as well on .125)

When I was in Univeristy I had a summer job with CCG based primarily out of CCGB Prescott, but also worked out of CCGB Hay River, NWT. being a scanner guy I got to know the radio room staff. From social engineering, Radio Shack frequency counter logging and having access to license info, in the Central Region all frequecy's used were in the marine band with the exception of a few mutual aid channels...RCMP, FIRE.

RCMP wasin VHF Range as was fire..very out dated.

The further away from Ottawa the quicker things got done.

10-15 km at most I would think once you're in-land.

On the water much farther. This is VHF-FM afterall.

I see I see. Perhaps I picked up the Pembroke transmission because there was a transmitter on the TSW in the Lindsay area at the time.

Thanks,

What Pembroke transmission are you speaking of?

Only type of SAR CG stuff I ever hear is on 157.125 usually talking with RCC Trenton.

It wasn't long, but quite clear. The operator id'd himself as from Pembroke, and the call came had come in from a vessel in the area.
