Doubtful, there is very little Provoice in Ontario. The two main users left would be Chatham Kent Police and Ottawa Police, and both are actively looking at transitioning to P25.

And Enersource is listed as Provoice on the Airtime Communications system as well in Mississauga, if that info is still correct and doesn't Waterloo Region Police still have a few Provoice TG's at least for the time being until their system gets upgraded.

I've never found out definitively if the WRPS groups are AEGIS or Provoice. Plus I believe they are encrypted.

And not to go off topic too much.. didn't Horizon, Enersource, Hydro One Brampton and Powerstream merge sometime last year.. I wonder if they will change to the same type of system as they are all using different types of systems atm.. Horizon - VHF TRBO Capacity Plus, Enersource - Provoice. Hydro One Brampton - Peel's P25 system & Powerstream - DMR Conventional Networked..

Doesn't look like much available in PE County.

Do you travel much with your scanners? That may be the deciding factor if it is worthwhile.

Just because it's not been updated in the RR database doesn't mean necessarily that there isn't any DMR type activity in the region.

Best bet is to search around for control channel like sounds and take it from there.

This system seems to be a popular system throughout parts of Ontario and pehaps PE County.
Turris Communications - PushPlus Network (UHF 201) Trunking System, Multiple Locations, Multi-State - Scanner Frequencies

Belleville Transit has gone to DMR most recently as well.

Doesn't look like much available in PE County.

I'm not telling anyone how to spend their money but, consider that when you factor the exchange rate $60 US is about $80 CDN. Is that expense justifiable for a few business talkgroups?

cramahe fire is using dmr cobourg town fire is switched over also , trent lakes and north kawartha township are using dmr . belleville city transit now using dmr . turris is now the provider for sales and service for northumberland county so it seems to me that dmr will be more common place in my area . hearing some taxi company waste collection also i am glad to spend the money for the upgrade i think it is worth the investment down the road as more and more people will be switching over
