HRD is Ham Radio Deluxe, a very popular ham transceiver and digital program...

This is my personal opinion, but I think you would end up in an insane asylum if you had to program 3 states' worth of data manually.. All that function and button pushing would be enough to drive even the late Bill Cheek up a wall.

And as for Uniden's so-called 'scanner program' - they never put one out for the XT series of scanners and their UASD hasn't been updated in ages.. Just break down and get FreeScan with a premium subscription and you'll be good to go. Now mind you, it will still take a bunch of time to organize 3 states' worth of data, but I can pretty much guarantee you won't be doing a whole lot of scanner button pushing.

Uniden's manual for these radios is a true piece of brown stuff, so do yourself a favor - either buy the Easier to Read manual from Scanner Master, or download it from here...

Although on second thought, you might be better off with a Home Patrol....HTH...Mike
