Well, you certainly can't use that radio for RCMP listening.

You have an analog radio. They are on a digital system. Not compatible.

There are(or use to be) two different radio systems used by the RCMP in Newfoundland. Most of the island using
the P25 digital trunking system and a EDACS trunking system (on Avalon Peninsula) on which the RCMP were analog
VHF .Which is why your "ham" radio receive it.
There were areas on the peninsula where outside interference would over ride the RCMP frequency.
A proper trunk-tracking scanner would be able to follow it. At last time I was there on vacation in 2012
you could.

Having said that, I suspect the RCMP may have gone to full encryption, which is a Canada wide thing.
Which no scanner or commercial radios can monitor. To do so would be illegal.

It's possible to monitor clear digital with a scanner - not with a Baofeng ham radio.

However RCMP and RNC are encrypted on their digital trunked system. No radio will decode encryption except an official radio with the proper decryption key (and you're not going to get that unless you're an RCMP or RNC member).
