Your scanner should load the Band Plan from the control channel when it first receives it.

That's not guaranteed; some systems are implicit, others explicit.

Implicit - Radio firmware plus CC messages determines channel/frequency pair
Explicit - System assigns the actual TX and RX frequencies over the CC

While explicit is typically used for VHF/UHF systems, I've heard of it popping up on 700/800 systems as well.

In this case, best bet is to select P25 Auto or whatever the appropriate selection for the scanner model is.

We had a UHF system suddenly stop broadcasting the bandplans over the control channel. Until they were input manually, nothing was heard.
