• 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:

Which system are you monitoring? With some systems you don't need to do anything for rebanding. It depends on the freqs.
The PRO-96, PRO-163 and 164 can be rebanded, but they require you to enter custom band plans. I understand the 163 & 164 can only be done using a program.

Radio only needs rebanding support for most MOT 800 systems

You only need a radio that supports rebanding if you are monitoring a MOT 800 rebanded system AND any of the voice frequencies fits the format of 85x.xxx0 MHz. With EDACS or LTR, just program in the new frequencies.

PRO-163/PRO-164 supports rebanding
PSR-400/PSR-300 supports rebanding (they are the same as '163/'164)
PRO-2055 does not
PRO-96 supports rebanding if you have new enough firmware

Don't forget there is also the PSR-410 & PSR-310 now, which are upgrades to the '163/'164.
