Greetings! I am traveling to Nashville next week and I wanted to take along my Uniden BCD396XT to monitor the Nashville/Davidson County Trunking System while I am there. However, I noticed that this system is a Motorola Type II System that has undergone the rebanding process. I have never monitored a Mot. Type II System that has been rebanded before and I must admit that I do not know what type of band plan to enter. If I understand things correctly, I need to enter a Custom band plan to properly monitor the Nashville/Davidson County Trunking System. That much I know, but I am not sure what to do after I tell my scanner that I want to set up a custom band plan. I know that I need to set my base frequencies, but I am not sure what the upper and lower base frequencies would be for, let's say, Site A of the Nashville/Davidson County Trunking System, which can be found here: Nashville/Davidson County System Trunking System, Nashville, Tennessee - Scanner Frequencies
. For Site A, would the lower base freq be 853.3125 and would the upper base freq be 859.9875? If not, what would the lower and upper base frequencies be?
After I enter in the lower and upper base freqs, I need to then input the offset and polarity for Site A. What the heck is the offset and polarity for Site A and how does one figure out that information? After I figure out the offset and polarity, then I need to determine the spacing for Site A. Does anyone know the spacing that is used for Site A?
I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could answer my questions by providing me with the Band Plan information for Site A (or even Site B) of the Nashville/Davidson County Trunking System. It would be even better if someone could explain how they were able to figure out the information needed for the Band Plan for Site A or B. If possible, please dumb down any explanation of how to figure out the Band Plan information since this area of scanning is new to me (referring to figuring out band plans). I did try to look at some of the information in the RR Wiki about figuring out band plans (Uniden Band Plan Entry - The RadioReference Wiki
), but I am still unable to figure this out. Thank you in advance to anyone that takes the time to reply to my request for assistance.
