Default Timing for Toledo Visit

I'm planing to visit my home city of Toledo either Columbus Day week or Thanksgiving Week. My cousin in Ottawa County wants me to set up a scanner for the new P25 systems in Toledo and Ottawa County. Question One: Is Columbus Day week too soon for the Ottawa County changeover? Question Two: Is the PRO96 adequate for the newer systems? Would like help once I arrive. Perhaps someone has a used handheld for sale. Thanks so much.

Qualification on Q2/A2. . . the Pro-96 is suitable for P25 systems as long as they're not using 700 MHz. VHF, UHF or 800 MHz and you should be OK. This means you won't have much luck on MARCS-IP if you intend to monitor it, as it's all 700 MHz right now.

Thanks for the catch - I was just basing that on Ottawa / Lucas.
