Yup, the OPP Aboriginal Services cover Manitoulin with custom paint schemes (not the OPP black-and-white). I think all or most of the OPP Aboriginal detachments get their own paint scheme.
No, he's not saying the OPP have a different paint scheme.
He's saying the UCCM Anishnaabe Police Service have a different paint scheme.
The Aboriginal Policing unit of the OPP provide assistance and support which could possibly include communications and vehicles although with a different paint scheme.
I'd check Fleetnet as a lot of the First Nations police seem to use it for their communications.
I will be there for a bit less then a week in august. I have an analog scanner so i will not be able to monitor opp on bell fleetnet. Was wondering if It's busy on the island (talking about EMS, FD & OPP VRs comms)? Also, other than the island emergency services, is there any other emergency services that can be monitor (i have theWretched said:Does anybody know the freqs used? I thought it used to be in the database but I must have been mistaken.
I think the Tyendinaga Mohawk Police have not yet separated from the OPP - all (four? ) officers are considered OPP constables and the OPP does recruitment, training, administration, and dispatch.Could I assume that Tyendinaga Reserve Police are the same then?
Different paint scheme yet dispatched by OPP?
Anywhere on the island, I won't be able to pick up any MI stuff because they're too far for my rubber ducky antana range (about 20-30 km ive been told.). Can you be more specific as of wich county in MI to programmed in? What did you ment when you said « more so if they are blasting.. »?Make sure you plug in Miller Enviromental/ Construction into your scanner, and use all the frequencies you can find for Ontario and MI. That is some darn good listening, more so if they are blasting..
More so if you will ever be on the west part of the island... click on the link. manitoulin island - Google Maps
Oh ya, also don't forget to check out the lighthouse on the west end too..
To be quite honest, if its not a "busy weekend" there is not much comms up there. I heard more on the local FD channel and FRS (heh) than I did from the OPP. (fire were doing training) MOH was kinda busy as well. Its really hit and miss up there with scanning. There is quite a few hams thou.... if you got your license.
The Manitoulin Quarry, located on the extreme west end of Manitoulin Island in Lake Huron (Ontario-Canada),represents one of the largest limestone quarries in North Amercia. The site production is nearly 5 millions tons peryear.

They have a *huge* facility up on the island, if you click on that map link, it should show the location (if google maps link it working correct) Also if you do go out there to "listen" remember to check out the lighthouse! Welcome
I'm guessing it's when you miss part of the transmission because it skips (because you're a vbit too far)."skip" , clear night
