There several sources:
1. Program your DMA Scanner - The RadioReference Wiki
2. Easier to Read BCD996XT Digital Scanner Manual
3. FreeSCAN
#3 is a free program. Since you are interested in trunked systems, you should definitely get software. This will not only make your programming much easier, but it will help you understand all of the features of the 15X/ It allows automatic download of any or all frequencies in your county and state from this site, and sets up trunking TGID's & para's(this is a big help). Once in the software, you can send everything to the scanner and you are off and running. You will need a USB adapter. http://wiki.radioreference.com/index...anners_via_USB

Sorry for the wrong link. I also thought you were from New Hampshire(USA). You need to go to International Radio Discussion Forums They have UK frequency information If you still need more, ask on the UK forum.

You're not kidding about the lack of frequencies for your county The trunking systems that you have cannot be picked up by any scanner made. Maybe you can listen to VHF/UHF aircraft, marine channels. Do a search with the service search function of the scanner. Or ask in the UK forum further down the forums page.
HTH,
Larry

Jason, please don't hijack someone else's thread to ask a question. If you go to the RR Wiki, and click on the Uniden scanner link, it will point you to all the different programming software available for your particular scanner. Make your own choice.
