Default Mass State Police zone 3 no CC

I listen to zone 3 in SE Mass. I am no longer receiving a control channel on 859.8375 or 859.2875. Has zone 3 finally rebanded? I get zone 4 100% on 855.5375 and also Nantucket 85 percent on 857.7125

There are no channels in zone 3 that are affected by rebanding.

Make sure ALL frequencies for Zone 3 are in your scanner they may have changed the control channel.

Use the SEARCH feature on your scanner to find where they moved to.
Then use the SUBMIT Feature on RR to provide the updated/valid new info

Since rebanding, AND understanding that Zone 3 of this system is NOT affected by rebanding, I always program every channel of a trunking system. This ensures that if the control channel is switched to a known channel, then I won't miss anything.
