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.


  • 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).
