Please use this article to document how to enter the 800mhz Rebanding changes outlined below in the various software packages that support Uniden TrunkTrackers III & IV scanners.

General

  • If you have a Premium Subscription, software that supports the web service will automatically download the correct System type and Custom tables.
  • The BCDx96XT, BCDxxxP2, and BCDx36HP series scanners already have the firmware updates to support 800mhz rebanding. BCD396T, BCD996T, BC246T, BC296D, BC796D, BC898T, BCT8, BCT15, and BCT15X scanners will need to undergo the appropriate firmware updates. These updates are listed here. Note: True P25 systems types should not require entry of the Band Plan values, as they should receive the Band Plan, over-the-air, from the Control Channel(s).

Uniden 800mhz Rebanding Table

Band Plan Base Freq (lower) Base Freq (upper) Offset Polarity Spacing
1 851.025 854.000 440 + 25 khz
2 851.0125 868.9875 0 + 25 khz

Note: These do Not support 800mhz rebanded systems: BC245XLT, BC250D, BC780XLT, BC785D, & BC895XLT


Uniden Plan Information

For those radios that require a plan to use CCO, there are 4 possibilities;

  • PLAN 1: if the last three digits of ALL the frequencies in use end in one of the following three digits: 125, 375, 625, or 875 (example: 856.1125, 860.7375, 859.6625, 855.8875).
  • PLAN 2: If ALL the frequencies are less than 869.0000 and end in one of the following three digits (125, 375, 625, or 875) and if ANY other frequencies end in (000, 250, 500, or 750)
  • PLAN 3: If the last three digits of ALL the frequencies in use end in one of the following three digits (000, 250, 500, or 750)
  • PLAN 4: If ALL the frequencies are less than 866.0000 and end in one of the following three digits (000, 250, 500, or 750) and if ANY other frequencies end in (125, 375, 625, or 875)

For Unique Band Plans see our Uniden_Band_Plan_Entry article for more details.
