Mississauga Fleetnet Tower

From The RadioReference Wiki

The Mississauga Fleetnet Tower Site #009 is located on Britannia Road just west of Hurontario Road just south of Highway 401 in the city of Mississauga.

This tower has a strong signal I find especially at high elevations and in my opinion carries better to the west than to the east. Perhaps the great buildup of Toronto to the east weakens this towers signal some. Coverage generally then extends from Toronto to the east and to Halton Region to the west.

You will also hear occasional activity off the Niagara CACC.


Cayuga's signal is 'blocked' somewhat by the Niagara Escarpment, called the Mountain in Hamilton. I can 'get' the tower generally at a decent strength from by home base in Burlington. Coverage greatly increases as one goes closer to the tower and on the escarpment/mountain.
