• 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:

Hey guys... can anyone give me an idea what Loretto Fire is using? I had them programmed as Adjala-Tos on 158.something.

But, I haven't heard anything for a little while. I see they're using new CP200 radios now - did they change frequencies as well?

Thanks!

Looking at Mike's Simcoe County WIKI entry , STN #2 (Loretto) is in Adjala using 158.235 for dispatch and 167.765 (754 DPL) for fireground.
That info is current as of Dec. 27, 2007.

and the Answer I have received from a Crew Chief within the Loretto Department of Volunteer Fire Fighters is:

"We are still on 158.235, the tones are still the same, the radios are now Narrow band Compliant, and our area of use was defined"

So re-program your scanner to NFM mode.

I was also told the Firefighters have become less than pleased with the changes in signal strength throughout their areas of use, so hope for some changes to their repeater system which will allow for easier monitoring.

Request for update submitted

Actually the changes will make it harder to monitor since they are trying to keep their signal within their operating area.

Clearview and Oro-Medonte have also recently undergone simulcast improvements which meant more coverage within their areas but less coverage outside.
