I have heard on occasion the above mentioned talkgroup active on the Hamilton Fleetnet tower but occasionally something 'strange' (to me) happens.

A few times last night and on other occasions the talkgroup cuts out abruptly. As it cuts out the scanner I use (396) makes a cracking sound, like someone quickly dropping a mic.

Is this because a EMS unit is no longer affiliating with the tower I am monitoring and the unit has left Hamilton 'air space?' Peel S is not a fixture on Hamilton's tower but often enough units have to go to OTMH or Georgetown.

Anyone ever hear this or have an explanation?

What your theory is, is pretty much spot on.

There was a radio that was causing whatever talkgroup to show up on the Hamilton tower. That radio either timed out, de-affiliated, or was re-affiliated on another tower, causing it to drop from the Hamilton site.

i alwats hear hamilton cacc on mowat...not sure why
I have heard this as well.

Since I might be 1/1 today I will push my luck.

Would 35600 affiliate with Mowat because there is Hamilton EMS units doing transfers in & around the GTA?

Most of the calls i hear on Mowat are local dispatch.. no idea why.. my thought was that perhaps since it is a clear shot across the lake, it picks up the mowat tower better when the ambulances are on the mountain..

Mississauga CACC is operating out of Hamilton CACC (for about 5 months now) due to a problem with the centre in Mississauga. Not sure if that effects anything

Wow a blast from the past!

Nothing out of the ordinary seems to have changed. Peel South is now always active off Charlton but not Peel N.
Halton EMS are always on 35792 and Patches for Halton Region hospitals are heard on T3 or the individual hospital patch t/g.

That's because the site doesn't broadcast a disconnect tone. Since nobody is listening, why bother?

Monitor the site with TRUNK88 and you'll know exactly why.
