Getting started

Getting Started

  • Determine the impact of rebanding on your system

  • Carefully analyze your system; consider doing a system inventory/audit

  • What frequencies are programmed in your radios

    • Both frequencies on your license and those used under sharing agreements

  • Find your category

    • A – Channels in first 150 only * (806.0125/851.0125 – 809.7375/854.7375)

    • B – Channels in NPSPAC only (821.0125/866.0125 – 823.9875/868.975)

    • C – Channels in NPSPAC and first 120

    • D – Channels in Interleaved spectrum (809.7625/854.7625 – 815.9875/860.9875)

* PS and CI in first 120 only


Retune reprogram replace update definition

Retune/Reprogram/Replace/Update Definition

  • Retune: Updating the channel frequencies via the Customer Programming Software/Radio Service Software programming software

  • Reprogram: Updating operating software via software FLASH with new frequencies & band plan

  • Update: One or more boards must be replaced in the equipment to enable retuning or reprogramming

  • Replace: Cannot be updated to support new frequencies or band plans

Category A

  • System with channels from 806.0125 / 851.0125 to 809.7375 / 854.7375

  • Relocates to channels from 809.7625 / 854.7625 to 816.9875 / 861.9875

  • Does not have any NPSPAC channels including Mutual Aid programmed in radio

  • Equipment impact

    • Radio units can be retuned to new frequencies

    • Radios in red are class B IM protection. Motorola recommends replacing those units for better interference protection*

      * Costs to replace radios that can be retuned or reprogrammed will be the responsibility of the licensee

  • System with NPSPAC channels from 821.0125/866.0125 to 823.9875/868.9875

  • Relocates to rechanneled 806.0125/851.0125 – 808.9875/853.9875

  • 821/866-824/869 MHz must be reflashed with new radio software to operate in 806/851-809/854 MHz

  • All radios must be retuned. The radios must be reprogrammed with a new RSS/CPS programming software to support new channels

Category c

Category C

  • Channels in both NPSPAC and the first 120 channels

  • May be a multi-step process

    • Move of first 120 channels is a retune

    • Second move will require reprogram and/or replace

  • All radios with NPSPAC channels must be reflashed with new radio software to operate in 806/851 - 809/854 MHz

  • All radios must be retuned. The radios must be reprogrammed with a new RSS/CPS programming software to support new channels


Category d

Category D

  • At this time, no impact; however

  • Public Safety licensees on channels 815.0125/860.0125 to 815.9875/860.9875 can relocate if desired to frequencies below 815/860 MHz.

  • Retune only if move

How to ensure successful rebanding

How to Ensure Successful Rebanding

  • Understand individual system specifics

  • Generate customized plan

  • Extended network of support services

  • Validation of network operation after completion


Customized management services

Customized Management Services

  • Inventory – as needed

  • Assessment of existing equipment

    • Can it be Retuned / Reprogrammed?

    • Must it be updated or replaced?

  • Evaluate the impact to your operation

  • Evaluate impact on interoperability with neighboring systems

  • Develop Cost Information

  • Coordinate with Transition Administrator

  • Provide overall Project Management


Available engineering services

Available Engineering Services

  • Baseline current system operation

    • Including Coverage ATP – as needed (mainly simulcast)

  • System Design

    • Frequency compatibility

    • Intermod (IM) studies

    • Detailed cut over plan

Perform system rebanding

Perform System Rebanding

  • Coordinate/Execute

    • Subscriber changes

    • Infrastructure changes

  • Site upgrades and antenna systems installation -- when necessary

  • Perform final Acceptance Test Plan


Determine if this is a good time to upgrade

Determine If This Is A Good Time To Upgrade

  • Do you have an aging system?

  • Do you need Project 25 capabilities?

  • You will be touching your system in order to reband

  • You will be getting some amount of money to reband

  • You can minimize disruption by putting in a new system vs. rebanding a live system
