• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I just downloaded the latest CSP freqs from the database called ConnecticutState into my BCD396XT and hoping that would be all that I would have to do.....but...I'm sitting here with my HP-1 on CSP and hearing all kinds of things going on and mt XT is silent.
I guess I'm going to have to go in and make changes to the XT but I haven't used this scanner in almost a year and I'm REALLY rusty with regard to system programing.
Can anyone give me the steps for setting my XT up for the CSP rebanding?
I did a search and didn't come up with anything.

Thanks!

Set the Motorola Band Plan to Custom
Enter the Custom Band Plan as follows

Lower/Band Plan Upper Offset Step
1) 0851.0250 0854.0000 440 25.0
2) 0851.0125 0868.9875 0 25.0

Then you have to change the control channel frequencies to be 15 Mhz lower than the old ones.

Of course it's easier to use software to do this, but you can do it manually as well.

Do I have to do this with firmware version 1.07.00 (SN35926094000861 SUM=15E, M-Ver=1).
on my BCD396XT ?
Is this version still vaild?
I noticed that we still have the frequency hang on the .3125 site.

The ability to program rebanded systems was available then. I prefer to keep my scanners current for firmware especially when any P25 quality is addressed.

From the link I posted earlier:
This update makes the following changes to your BCD396XT scanner:
• Add support for storing Unit IDs in channels with alpha tags.
• Fixed a problem where corrupted memory caused by a bad PC programming upload would make the scanner lock up on the copyright screen.
• Fixed a bug that caused a bad hit count with some PC software.
• Save Hold status immediately instead of at power-down.
• Add ATT indication in Close Call Only mode
• Fixed a bug that could cause APCO P25 decoding to stop in some conditions.
