System Description

Please be aware that this system has been replaced by the Maritime Public Safety Radio Network (MPSRN) in 2014/2015. The information presented below is for historical purposes only.

The Aliant Nova Scotia Trunked Mobile Radio System (TMRS) was a 69-site Motorola SmartZone Omnilink system in the 800 MHz public safety band, consisting of two zones, operated in the province of Nova Scotia, as well as the city of Fredericton, New Brunswick. "Zone 1" reported a Motorola system ID of 6939, and roughly consisted of the entire western and central parts of the province (to an imaginary line drawn from approximately Pugwash to Sherbrooke. "Zone 2" reported an ID of 6D19, and consisted of the rest of the province, including Cape Breton Island and the three sites in the city of Fredericton. All public safety portables are believed to be permitted seamless roaming from zone to zone. Talkgroups consisted of a mixture of analog, digital P25 and encryption.
