That would be rebanded not rebranded...since you are a subscriber, when you download the system from the web service, the required custom tables for 800 rebanded systems should be automatically set up for you.

There's one additional step you will likely need to do. Unfortunately the 396T often comes with the original firmware which doesn't support rebanding. You will need to update it to get the radio to accept the new bandplan.

It's a bit of a painful process - you must follow the instructions EXACTLY. Do NOT skip any steps!

How you can check the version of your firmware, and links to where to get the fixes, are all found here (links are always blue - both here and in the wiki...)

Updating the Firmware in Uniden DMA Scanners - The RadioReference Wiki

The XT scanners don't have this particular issue...but the older T models do.

Hopefully your 396T has a firmware version greater than 3.00 - if not, you now know what to do
