    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.

I was up at Mohawk Racetrack today and pegged off the following with Close Call.

463.9625 468.9625 DCS122/225/244/346/532 Racetrack - Operations (Voice Inversion)
452.0625 DCS703 Racetrack - Unknown Usage (not license but sounded like racetrack related)
464.4875 DCS311 Slots - Security
453.7000 DCS074 Slots - Unknown Usage
452.5000 457.5000 DCS165 Slots - Cage & Coin
464.0625 DCS205 Slots - Unknown Usage
451.1875 456.1875 DCS346 Slots - Unknown Usage

The one that really sparks my interest is 463.9625 which has multiple DCS tones as well as using voice inversion. I have no idea what this is used for and why they would use inversion. Now so far out of the 4 racetracks I have been to, Flamboro, Fort Erie, Woodbine and Mohawk this is the only one I have heard any type of encrption/inversion used on one of their frequencies. The ones that I have listed as Racetrack are licenesed to the Ontario Jockey Club and the ones that I have listed as Slots are licensed to the Ontario Lottery & Gaming Corp. Now if anyone could fill me in with the unknown usages it would be appreciated.

They use 409/420.xxxx input/output (1000, 2000, 3000, 4000) which is a 4 channel LTR system for the Slots as well they use

151.0550 DCS346 Valet Parking
172.9200 DCS131 Racetrack - Mainteance
172.9800 PL 127.3 Racetrack - Security

These where all verified back a few months ago.

Hi Matt, thanks for the 463.9625 info. It may be used at Woodbine as well.
I'm within "spitting distance" of Woodbine and often "hear" the voice inversion used on that freq. I don't have the means to listen to voice inversion, so that freq. was a quandry for me.

I will take note of the "unknowns" and see if I can come up with something. :)

I was down at Woodbine a couple months ago and didn't hear that frequency although it could be a new one. It is licenced for Mohawk but no idea if it is for Woodbine. It could be some type of admin channel or something since they both are under the "Woodbine Entertainment" name.
