I hate to say it, but it will completely depend on the system used by the timmies. They are not all the same. I know that I have picked up one of the local McDonalds on a VHF freq (by accident), but haven't heard any of the others on the same one. You'd have to know the model numbers of the equipment they're using and do some research.

These systems use anything from 20Mhz to 900 and some of them are starting to get into the new GHz platforms depending on manufacturer.

469.0125 is very common for Tim Hortons drive thrus (and many others)

Other common Calgary drive thru frequencies for McDonalds, Wendy's, A&W, BK, Krispy Kreme, etc are:

30.4000
30.8400
32.4800
32.4000
33.1600
35.0200
463.4375
464.0125
469.2625
154.5100
154.5400
154.6000
154.6700

You can intercept some pretty interesting "inside" chatter on these frequencies.

I know here in Edmonton .. the neighbourhood Tim's was using 469.0125, but was using very very low power and i could barely pick it up from 2 blocks away. That was an unobstructed view from 18 floors up.
Drive thru monitoring can be fun at times and some of the requests are right over the top example: heard at a Tims Hortons in Edmonton over the past years:

"Don't pour my tea until I'm at the window.. Only use the end cuts of the tomatoe... I would like a regular burger with fries.... Can you make mine large coffee with nine by nine 9 sugar 9 milk.... I only like stale doughnuts, do you have any?....OH!! are you still open.....What happend to the last gay that use to work the window....Can you tell that guy behind me to shut up.....why is the the small coffee cheaper then a large......
do you have McHappy meals.....If I sponsor a kid at camp, can i go...."

What joke exactly are you planning to play on your friend that involves radio frequencies?

goto this website and they'll tell you how to take drive frequencies and make them work with a toaster and a cobra/citizen cb radio mod

Shawdow, do you have a license to operate on any of these frequencies? If not, then don't. TH might not like someone else operating on their paid for frequencies. Why is it that everyone with a radio thinks they can operate on any frequency they want. That is not how it works. If any questions, talk to Industry Canada.
