Older scanners like the Pro-96 don't support multi-site trunking. You can program in multiple sites, but the scanner will stay parked on the first control channel it finds until the signal is lost. There is a way around this (see below)
Here is how I program my scanners for a multi-site setup:
Program every-other channel as a control channel.
Ch. 000 = P25 Site (Mot)
Ch. 001 = FM or CT Frequency
Ch. 002 = P25 Site (Mot)
Ch. 003 = FM or CT Frequency
(The FM/CT frequency cannot be blank for this to work, I usually use a non-used frequency to make this work)
GRE PSR-500, GRE PSR-600, RS PRO-197, & RS PRO-106
Change the multi-site mode to stationary for the system you wish to monitor. Pressing "MAN" on a talkgroup will hold on the talkgroup and check multiple sites. If you pause on a talkgroup only one site will be monitored.
Create a separate system with only one control channel for the sites you want to monitor (If you duplicate a system all of your scanlists will also be duplicated).
Uniden 396XT & 996XT
These scanners will scan multiple sites if you are not holding on a talkgroup. Once you hold on a group the scanner will stay parked on a site. If signal is lost the scanner will then find a new site to stay parked on.

The only one of these I have been able to log is Thorodin but I agree with scanlist on these. Here is a site profile I have generated for Longmont PD/FD on some of the other metro area sites:
