You'll need to enter the new control channel frequencies. Calculating the new frequencies is easy, most MARCS control channels are in the NPSPAC band (866-870 MHz), just subtract 15 MHz from any of the CC's in this band.
For example at the Meigs Pomeroy site:
867.8250 868.5500 868.9500
Will be changed to:
852.8250 853.5500 853.9500
You could enter both the old and new frequencies into your scanner now so when the site gets switched you won't miss anything.
There are a few MARCS control channels outside the 866-870 band, for MARCS these control frequencies are not impacted by rebanding and will remain the same.
