Steve's Radio on Agricola St used to sell scanners.... havent heard anything of them in a while. Also check littlemac.ca from the Bridgewater area. He sells GRE scanners but is just about to leave the business. I would check him first if you are interested in GRE, and who wouldn't be?! Other than that you will have to go to the big suppliers for Canada.. durham radio is one of them. and then look at ebay. I have bought via ebay but have had mixed results re the condition of the items. I travel to the US a couple of times a year and try to combine the trip with a purchase down there.
Negative, that does 800mhz which is required for Trunk Mobile Radio system in Nova Scotia but this scanner only does 800 itself, that means you will hear EVERYONE on the TMR without the option to lock anyone out so following a conversation will be next to impossible as there are hundreds of TMR users with the bulk being in HRM.
You need a Trunk Tracker.
Go to Ebay.com and type in "trunktracker scanners"
If you want to listen to HRM Police, RCMP, DFO, DNR Conservation officers, then you will need to go a step further and get a DIGITAL Trunk Tracker. Any scanner listed as doing "P-25" or "APCO 25" is a Digital Scanner.
He I have gotten a GRECOM PSR500 I checked it seems to be programed with the right Frq's acording to this site set it to Scann and nothing is coming over turned Sq low ... Anything else I should look for Checked manual didn't help much ...
