COR radio system rebanded today

The City of Richardson radio system rebanded today.

Rebanding is a changing of assigned frequencies based on an FCC realloction.

The Bad News is that some older scanners do not know how to use the new frequency allotments, particularly with Motorola-based systems. Some scanners have firmware upgrades to help the situation.

The Good News is that the COR radio system is EDACS/LTR instead of Motorola, and most older trunking scanners can handle that. Both my new 246T and old 245XLT took the new freqs with no drama.
