What frequency does Lambton EMS operate on? I see their talkgroup on the province-wide system but they only use one talkgroup for their ops?! Also, does Fleetnet ever plan on going to an all digital system. Thanks.
Lambton EMS is indeed on Fleetnet, using talkgroup 35168. They use the Wallaceburg Tac talkgroups to patch to the hospitals. As for Fleetnet going 100% digital this has been rumored more than once. The current Fleetnet contract with Bell is up for renewal in 2014 (or somewhere thereabouts) and there is a lot of people speculating that Fleetnet could/would/might be upgraded for full digital 9600baud trunking at that point. But as always take it with a grain of salt. Such an upgrade would be hugely expensive and the powers that be may have a hard time justifying the cost in this day and age. Although on the flipside Fleetnet is already pushing 10 years old and by today's standards is using essentially obsolete hardware.
