• 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:

Is there a way to set the pro-106 to auto reband? I figure there is a way to do it other than manually lower the other frequencies by (15mhz, right?)

Thanks in advance.

Thanks in advance.
Well, first off, rebanding isn't [necessarily] as simple as "lowering the other frequencies by 15 Mhz." Not all frequencies will be dropped 15 Mhz lower... some will change completely. This depends upon the frequencies currently in use on the system, activity around your area on [what would be] the 15 Mhz lower frequencies, etc.

And, as far as specifically setting up a TSYS to designate that the system has been rebanded, there is not a single setting that you magically change on the scanner that designates the system as rebanded.

If you are manually programming the scanner, you have to go into the TSYS object of the newly rebanded system and go to the "T Tables" option, set it to "Custom", and then edit the Trunking Tables.

What the trunking tables should look like is best seen at the following URL:

Custom Band Plans - UtahRadio

I always use the second Custom Bandplan shown at the above URL and I use only the first two tables:

Code:
Lo Chan Hi Chan   Offset    Base Freq     Step
440     559       440       851.025000    25.000
0       719       0         851.012500    25.000
It only takes a few minutes to make the changes manually. If you are using a program such as PSREdit or Win500, there are options in those programs to designate the system as rebanded and set the appropriate bandplan before uploading the system to your scanner.

Thanks a lot. I decided to do it manually and just drop everything 15mhz. (yes it is in my area.)

Very good explanation by Mtindor, if your rebanding a Motorola Type11 System, but if its a P25 9600baud you only need to drop the freqys....
