I programmed the Sudbury Public Safety EDACS system on my two Uniden scanners : Univen BC246T (analog trunktracker) and BCD396T (digital trunktracker). I can monitor Greater Sudbury Fire Services on the EDACS system with my two scanners. However, for police, I can. They use digital modulation : ProVoice, that cannot be monitored my any scanner on the market today. The only was you can monitor Greater Sudbury Police Service is to buy a EDACS ProVoice radio and have it programmed. There's a few suggestions of EDACS ProVoice radios to monitor GSPS. Just go to the Ontario Forums Home Page and do a search : Sudbury Police. A few thread will pop-up and just read there.
Also, I heard/read that the EDACS is on its last life cycle to It will need to be replaced soon. Don't know what kind would be the new system.
Hope this help.
