796D and the San Diego County Sheriff Dispatch

Hi All,

 

Can anyone tell me if my BC796D is still usable for the San Diego County and vicinity dispatch frequencies?

I pulled the radio from service about five years ago when it was working fine but when I set it back up I've found large gaps in the bands.  I use Proscan and reloaded all the programming as it's always been but still no joy.

 

Tks,

 

Dave

Hi Dave,

Looks like that county migrated to a APCO 25 Phase II system that the BCD796D won't follow.
