Rebanding of Michigan's Public Safety Communications System (MPSCS)
Did your scanner stop working? Mine did, I guess it pays to pay attention. We had a bit of a snow storm last week and as my wife and youngest son went shopping I was curious as to why I could not hear anything on my digital scanner a RadioShack Pro 2096, well Michigan has re-banded and the tower frequencies have all changed. Kinda sneaky, I have not had to programmed this scanner since it was new so it took a bit of searching. I was just glad that it was not broken, of which was my first thought when nothing was coming from the speaker. I had expected to hear lots of slide off's and the like but nothing? Well the scanner app on my phone worked but not the radio? Well thanks to a bit of searching and http://www.radioreference.com/ everything was explained.. It pays to pay attention!
