To access this screen, change the site type to Mot Custom/Reband. If you are using the RR Trunk Import, and the rebanded flag has been turned on in the database, FreeScan automatically adds the appropriate values into the table.


  • NOTE: Although ProScan supports the BC250/785, rebanding is not supported in these models.


  1. On the 'Database' Row, click on 'Trunk Bank Settings' (figure 1)
  2. Fill in the values as shown (figure 2)
