Hi everybody, I'm new to the site, but not new to the hobby of radio monitoring, having just returned after a couple of decades. I just picked up a small analog 'starter' scanner (or "re-starter" in my case) last week and have enjoyed simply re-introducing myself to what's out there. Quick question: Has anyone else noticed a sharp decrease in the number of transmissions emanating from local fire departments such as Welland, Port Colborne and St. Catharines? Over the past couple of days, it's been so quiet, that I'm beginning to wonder if perhaps they're now using new frequencies. Anyone else notice this?
