I live in Johnson Co Indiana and I am having trouble getting my scanner to pick up anything at all. I have a BCD396T and had all channels that I wanted and towers programmed. It was working some time ago and then I went over seas for about 6 months. Turned it back on and now it is not picking anything up. I have tried reprogramming but nothing is working. Any help would be great.
You probably haven't reprogrammed for rebanding yet? First thing would be to update scanner firmware that adds the custom band plans to the scanner and then check all the freq's with the R/R Database and update those also. If your scanner is currently setup for Motorola Type II-800/P25 you will need to change to MOT-Custom and enter special band plan data. See wiki for your scanner model for specific instructions http://info.uniden.com/twiki/bin/vie...m_Band_Plan_Re on how to set it up.
I have already done all of that and rechecked and all of that looked ok. But still nothing at all.I have it set to scan 5 diffrent towers and I have even set it to just pull from 1 tower with no luck. Is there a way to find out if the offset has changed or something in that setup.
