Yup, this has been discussed multiple times before. About the only time you'll hear them on the radio is when they're in a large convoy headed somewhere or patrolling the lines after a storm. Anything else is done via cell phone.I am in around Orillia, Barrie, Muskoka.
Here in South Dundas there is a fleet of hydro trucks (Holland Power). They go to areas hit hard from storms in US and Canada when the local crews need help. I monitor their local frequency and when it gets active. I know there is a storm going to hit somewhere. Just thought I would mention it in case you wanted to add them in case they end up near you.As we all know, the more active a service is, the easier it is to understand things. There are many of us hobbyists who compile information from listening and hearing references, then mapping out where units are sent or transmitting from.
Or hearing a reference and a few days later hearing something else based off that reference. It's an uphill battle but when the information comes together, it's rewarding.
I don't think they're are in the database. I'm not sure how to have them added.
Thank you.On the Database page go to Submit Data in the menu on the left side, follow the guidelines. Otherwise, let me know the confirmed use frequencies, include any tones (CTCSS, DPL) and the location where you heard it from and I will take it from there.
