Map coded location/possition info

  • Saskatchewan's conservation officers use a code system to give their location to the dispatch centre in Prince Albert. You can make your own S.E. coded position map using a Saskatchewan Grid Road Map. You can get one of these maps at any RM office or from SARM. Now that you have a map we can start at the south east corner at the bottom, number is 30 under it mark 99 now move to the west under # 31 mark 98 and so on all the way to the south west corner of the map the last number is 35. Now go back to the south east corner but this time on the side of the map number is 1 mark beside this AR then moving north 2 is BR and so on to 26 mark ZR. Number 27 becomes AS and so on north to 52 becomes ZS. 53 is AT and so on moving north all the way up to the last ZT is located at Sisipuk Lake. Now go back down the east side you just finished to where you marked GS and mark 99 just to the west of it,like you did at the bottom of this map. (This line goes west through the Quill Lakes south of Saskatoon). Moving to the west on this line mark 98 and 97 there is no #95 or #96 the next number is 94 and so on all the way to the last number on the west side of the map #37. Now go and mark the middle and the west side of your map the same as you did on the east side. Now when officer 173 gives his location as Hotel Romeo 81 you will know he is in Weyburn or when officer 224 gives his location as JS 60 you will know he is in Saskatoon. This code system was broken a couple of months after they started using it on the old FleetNet radio system.
