What has happened to the AWIN System? I know they have rebanded. Was hearing alot of traffic from all over now for the past 2 days its been dead! I re-program my BCD396T with the ARC396 software. When you open the ARC396 software it says at the top for new rebanded systems use Motorola Type 2 Custom, but I had some help me out and told me to leave it as a Apco25 System. They must of really lower the power! i Dont see how that can help the units all the way out in far NE AR. Im in Clay Co. and have heard them talk on Clay Co. channels.

There is no need to use Motorola type 2 custom leave it as APCO25 System and input new control frequencies.

primary control channel / Alternate control channel
Hopewell 851.48750 / 851.23750
Pocahontas 851.08750 / 851.06250
Burdette 851.80000 / 851.55000
Ravenden 851.87500 / 851.42500

Your Firmware Version needs to be 3.02.02

To find out more info on re-banding and new frequencies go to Arkansas Radio Discussion Forum

I used to hear the system anywhere in NEA but since they've rebanded it's been horrible. I don't know what they have done to it but I wish it'd go back the old way!
