The control channel changed. So what? You DID program in all of them, didn't you? This is why (on a Motorola system) you must program in all possible control channels, so if and when it changes, it won't matter.

No, it isn't rebanding. Control channels changing depends on the system. On the Broward County system, it used to rotate every day. Then it stayed on one frequency for many months. Then it changed to a different frequency, and it's been there ever since. I have witnessed on rare occasions it changing several times in a period of a few minutes. If you program them all, this won't matter.
