Documentation Sub-page for Template:Infobox TRS Canada

Scope of Use

Purpose

  • This template presents a standardized page for Canadian Trunked Radio Systems (TRS).
  • Data from Industry Canada - the Canadian equivalent of the FCC - is not downloaded to our database. Therefore do not use the callsign templates or anything that would invoke the FCC mapping functions


Directly Invoked By

  • Canadian TRSs


Parameters

  • Many of these parameters may be filled in with data from the database or other wiki pages, as shown.
    • SysName - The name of the TRS being documented
    • SysType - The type of the TRS being documented. Use the terminology found in the Glossary whenever possible. See the notes below
    • SysID - The system ID of the TRS, if known. Blanks are acceptable if not known
    • CTone - The connect tone needed for an actual user to access this system. It's not needed for scanners. Blanks are acceptable if not known
    • WACN - The Wide Area Communications ID, if known. Blanks are acceptable if it's not
    • NAC - If this is a Project 25 system, the Network Access Code (NAC) for an actual user to access this system. It's not needed for scanners. Blanks are acceptable if not known
    • Ccode - If this TRS is a MOTOTRBO type, and the DMR color code is known, place it here. See the notes below for further information. Blanks are acceptable if not known
    • RAN - If this TRS is a NXDN type, and the RAN is known, place it here. Blanks are acceptable if not known
    • Band - Generic description of the band this TRS uses; examples like 'VHF', 'UHF', '700 Mhz' are fine. If there is more than one band, seperate them with a '/'
    • Owner - Who owns this TRS? If not known, it can be left blank. You can also use Public or Private to describe its ownership type
    • City - Self Explanatory. If there are multiple cities used as sites, Various can be placed here.
    • County - The wiki link for the county (if known), with a substitution for the more English looking name for readability. Various can be used here if the TRS has sites in multiple counties.
    • Province - The province where the TRS resides, written with a wiki link along with a more English description. See the example below.
    • ForumTitle - The title of the forum that covers this province, as found in the Forums on this website
    • ForumPath - The forum's province name which can be found in the URL. It can be hyphenated, and is always written in lower case.
    • sid - The SID can be found as a token in the last part of the URL for this TRS in the database.


Notes
  • Not all of these tokens are required, but every effort should be made to fill them in. Many can be left blank, and it will not cause the template to fail
  • These items should be installed, when needed, in a new section to be called 'Related Links' or 'Related Pages'. Templates mentioned here can all be found on the Templates-List: General Use Only page
    • If the TRS is of a type that can't be trunked or scanned, a warning to that effect is required. Use the Tracker-Related templates
    • If the TRS is a MOTOTRBO type, and uses multiple color codes, put See DMR Bandplan in the DMR Color Code field. You must then supply a link to an article with the corrected bandplan that shows each color code by frequency (when known). The Table Trbosys template is designed for this purpose.

Examples

  • The horizontal lines below separate examples for clarity and do not appear when template is invoked.
