Not just scannerheads, but news media (MUCH
harder to track to scoop), amateur radio ops (inter-related on
safety issues), off duty fire (gotta listen to be quick on that
OT call) and smaller groups like neighborhood watch.

and buyer, it became political, slowing the entire process.

Rebanding is simple:
1. Program the system frequencies 15 MHz lower.

That is all you need to do.
Are you sure they did not do more than rebanding?
Such as change to a new system?

I have the correct database. I worked in Public Safety in
OC during the planning for Re-Banding. The contractors
asked all of the users if we had scanners that would need

scanners just in case. I was retired just as the started

in. Has anyone found a fix for this issue on the Uniden
Thanks in advance for any assistance you can give.
