Default How to tell if a system has rebanded

I'm looking through the RadioReference database and programming my scanner using ARC software. For some 800Mhz systems I'm prompted to Reband. How can I tell from this database whether or not I need to set the system up as rebanded?

Thanks in advance.

The correct link should be
Rebanding - The RadioReference Wiki

If any of the freqs. you want to monitor have a zero in the 4th decimal place, it has been rebanded. (e.g. 851.2250)

That can't be right. Orange County, CA hasn't yet rebanded, but several of its frequencies have a zero in the fourth decimal place. That system has been in place for over 13 years now.

I think what he was getting at (but in no way made it clear) was that is only important in the 851, 852, & 853 MHz frequencies. Those are the ones that were "rebanded" from the original 866, 867, & 868 MHz frequencies.
