It will if he's looking at buying a used ma/com radio off of ebay or something like that...Viper43 said:rebanding won't affect the scanning of the Hamilton Co EDACS, your old scanner will still scan that, only Motorola systems will not trunk properly with rebanding.
Thats a good two cents... Not just for hamilton county but for SAFE-T, and MECA!W9NES said:You need to buy a Digital scanner like a Uniden Bc 396T handheld or a Uniden Bc 996T and then you will not have to worry about not being able to listen to Hamilton Co.Just my two cents worth.Respectfully Submitted.Timothy A.

Buy the best you can afford, I would recommend digital scanners, but analog might be all you need or want.pliquett said:Can anyone tell me if or when the Indianapolis area will be rebanded? I'm wanting to buy some more equipment but I don't want it to be useless in a few months or years. Thanks
I would get the PSR-500 then, as that will program and act the same as the PSR-600, just in a portable, battery operated edition. Plus it will work with rebanding using tables, plus it has firmware updatability and will continue to work.pliquett said:Thanks for the update. I bought a PSR-600 about a month ago and love it!! I use ARC500 and programing has never been easier. I would like to buy a PSR-500 or BC396T but have looked at some older models on ebay. I just don't want to buy a PRO-97 and not be able to get the non-digital trunking.
