The December MT discusses rebanding in the Scanning Report column, and unfortunately gets a couple of details wrong (for example, that the PRO-2096 and PRO-96 had firmware fixes for rebanding, which is untrue).

However the following wiki article suggests that the 97 and 2055 can be adjusted, much like Win96 can make the PRO-96/2096 work on rebanded systems..

http://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/PSR-300/400_Software_and_USB_Support

I think some of the confusion lies in the fact that Win97 also supports the GRE/RS scanners, and those CAN be rebanded.

Check my understanding here? If that's the case, a comment to that effect can be added for clarity. And precisely which scanner(s) need firmware 1.06 or better? The RS scanners?

Thanks Dave, but yes, I did know that....I think the RS scanners had the firmware fixes for rebanding at version 1.06, right? That bottom part of the wiki article is none too clear and that's what I need to clean up.

Yes, in the links it pointed to the changes that included the custom tables.

I wish Radio Shack would refer to their products by the model numbers. I have no idea what a 20-163 is, but I do know the PRO-whatever series.
