General Information


The City of Guelph Capacity+ System replaces the older analog UHF repeater system that was in place of the Public Works & Transit departments. For PW, one site at the Verney Water Tower, and another at Guelph General Hospital. For Transit, a site at 65 Speedvale Ave. PW had 3 conventional channels, 2 on repeaters, and Transit, 3 LTR PassPort channels. According to their RFP, the City wanted a more reliable two-way voice system with different channels for the different Works departments. The City also appears to have wanted to simplify their AVL service by pairing it to the new system.


As of Late April 2015, the system is fully operational, with over 500 radios on the system. The older analog systems are no longer in use as the frequencies associated with them are currently in use with new system

Call signs

  • Orange - Waste collection
  • Black - Downtown maintainers
  • Yellow - Winter maintenance leads
  • Gold/Silver/Bronze - Waste resource innovation centre

For Plows, the last 3 numbers of the vehicle number are used as the call sign. Fun fact: there are two 314s.

Radio IDs

Radio IDs below 1000 are typically handheld radios.
