Hi all, As I was listening to my BC246T scanner today I came upon a weird frequency/signal/tone on 938.0250Mhz wondering what the heck it is this was at about 3:00 PM. Time is now 11:49 P.M. and the frequency/signal/tone is still on, by the way I'm in quick search mode.

For what it's worth, which may be very little, in the US, there are trunked radio systems in the 935-940MHz band.

Thing to do is go to TAFL and do a SIngle Frequency search for Ontario.

Single Frequency Search | Spectrum Direct | Industry Canada

Then you can do a Callsign lookup on Licensee Name search from there.

938.025000 4 BRAMPTON, ON 2100 BOVAIRD DR E The Corporation of the City of Brampton -Info Technology- 900 MHz
938.025000 4 BRAMPTON, ONT. (ML) The Corporation of the City of Brampton -Info Technology- 900 MHz
938.025000 6 BRAMPTON, ON 100 COUNTY COURT BLVD The Corporation of the City of Brampton -Info Technology- 900 MHz

Sounds like it's going through a reverb unit or an echo chamber. Thanks for the help guys.

Telemetry of some kind, perhaps?

Possibly, but telemetry per se tends to be in the 928/952MHz sub-bands.

That said, 938-940MHz used to be thick with Mobitex data signals (inputs 899-901MHz).
Ones in the U.S. that I know of were a bit lower in the band (935-936).
