This is the former Maritimes Scanning Site, and it continues to shrink as I do less and less scanning. For you radio enthusiasts looking for frequency and talk group lists there are wonderful discussion and database sites covering our region, namely ScanMaritimes, RadioReference and ScanPEI. Much of what is left here is for my own convenience, to cater to my many other interests, but you of course are welcome to read these pages, and use the links. My thanks to the many contributors over the years, some of you very major back in the formative years and some in the later ones... you know who you are, and as well those who contributed once or a few times. I have heard from some of you that this site was what really got you going in scanning back when we were still trying to figure out the TMR, and in the years since. I am very pleased to hear that the site was of some use and inspiration to you. It was a pleasure!
The Maritimes Scanning Site was featured in the August 2003 edition of Popular Communications
