• 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:

I was gonna be funny and mention that if the OPP wanted pot they'd call a dealer on their cell :)

When I was up north in the early summer there was a lot of activity on theOPP surveillance channels. Our cottage is less than a mile from the largest meth lab bust in the province. Perhaps the encrypted activity I heard up there was the pre-bust gabbering.

When we were last up there a few helicopters flew over low. They were not coast guard, Fleetnet at the time indicated that noone was missing, no need for the search & rescue copters. I had my scanner on & heard nothing.

For the summer grow up bust the RCMP also provided helicopters to the various operations. I seam to remember hearing them on 142.7700 in the past. Coast Guard helicopters flying budget is pretty tight and used up mostly in the Central Region by openning and closing the navigation season. When I had a summer job with CCG in Prescott I got to fly around the Seaway twice.

Most of the grow op cutting comms are pretty boring.

In my area last year they were using SIM 11 from the chopper and the ground crews were using 408.9125 to talk amongst themselves.
