Depends on how much you are willing to spend and what you want to listen to. Very few people know if and when their local plice or municipalities "switch" to unscannable systems. Their is a lot of speculation about changes but very few people have a definitive answer.
It seems that very few people write their councillors and mayors, they are more than happy to share their accomplishments.
As for myself. I have a scanner, I enjoy listening to the OPP and the EMS in the area and the MTO. I miss my regions police comms but fire is fun. My home patrol was is used often.
So, if you enjoy listening to the OPP, buy a digital scanner, it would seem that the fleetnet system is here to stay in the forseeable future. If not, you will always have the EMS and MTO patrols.
