I am in serious need of help with Freescan for Ontario. I can't see to set up anything that works the way I want it to work. I've tried watching videos on Youtube and reading as much as I can here on RR yet it doesn't seem to be working out for me. If anyone in Ontario can help me out it would be greatly appreciated. I'm trying to program BCD396T.

I can PM you some freescan files I have for my 396T.
What exactly are you trying to listen to or program?

The problem with the BCD396T is it only does "single sites" so you have to program a separate system for each site.

Also the 396T wont do pathched talkgroups which the OPP use a lot... if you programmed Toronto you may not hear them as they are on whitby or on MTO talkgroup.

Unless your close to a tower the included antenna will NOT work to pick up a signal. You need a better antenna preferably an external or magmount antenna

Your a premium subscriber you can IMPORT in freescan then send to the radio.. makes programming much easier
