It looks like you will need a new digital or that supports rebanding scanner a 396T or a 996T or a 796D Unidens or GRE 500/600 Or a Radio Shack 2096 or 96 for that area when they reband and if they use Safe T the new state wide system witch is digital and analog mix

Well lucky for me the BCT8 does support rebanding and works with all of these systems:
Motorola Type I
Motorola Type II
Motorola Type IIi Hybrid
Motorola Type II Smartnet
Motorola Type II Smartzone
Motorola Type II Smartzone Omnilink
EDACS Standard (Wide)
EDACS Standard Networked
EDACS Narrowband (Narrow)
EDACS Narrowband Networked
EDACS SCAT
LTR Standard

So i'm not really sure what your trying to say.

What they are saying is it won't work with the digital systems such as SAFET where the state police are and many of the counties also have TG's.
So for the most part you'll be OK.

Hi, my BCT8 is still working just fine in Tippecanoe Co. However, most are correct about what you can and can not hear. As of today, all the Lafayette, West Lafayette, and Tippecanoe Co agencies are still Analog. Tippecanoe Co has it's own Trunk System, and only uses the SAFET for back up, and they are Analog on the SAFET. The Indiana State Police are on SAFET and are all Digital. The BCT8 will not hear them. If you can IM me off list, maybe I can help. I'm here is town. my e-mail is dan.taylor132comcast.net.
