I was thinking of buying a RS Pro-97 scanner. The problem is here in NJ a lot of Motorola systems will be rebanding. I do know that the Pro-96 and 2096 will work after rebanding. I have not heard anything on the Pro-97 or the Pro-528. So what will happen after rebanding occurs? Will those models cease to be manufactured, to be replaced by newer analog trunking scanners that support rebanding?

I woud not buy the Pro-528 because it does not have "test" tagging for any ID's you program. The Pro-164, which I just purchased, is stated as being able to work with the "rebanding". I have also read that the Pro-96, which I also have will work with the "rebanding".

Troop A & B have all frequencies below 861.0000 thus may work with two table settings, though those in 860.0125 - 860.9875 will be rebanded you may be able to use the two table findings by Wayne_H on Pro-96 rebanding. See second Code: grouping. The 96 has only one table available using scanner keyboard so Win96 is required to set more then one and they are finitely defined with ChLo & ChHi. However, one might try setting the 97 as follows:
Code:
Base Freq  Offset  Step
851.025000 440     25.0
851.012500 000     25.0
However, I wouldn't purchase a 97 based on the above. :roll:

Troop C has 5 freqs which will require the first Code of 6 tables.
