First we have to establish what system you are trying to separate. I would guess it is: Franklin County Public Safety Trunking System
and then I would assume you are talking about the police zones. If so, you need to create a Moto TypeII/p25 trunking system. Then create groups for the zones, and enter some or all of the Columbus PD Far North (Zone 1) Talkgroups using the DEC. For example 1328 PATROL 1 Repeat this for the other zones you want. . If this is not the system, please supply the link.

This is a good guide: FreeScan User Guide - The RadioReference Wiki Check Editing a Trunked System, see Type 2/P25 selected
then Create/Edit Site, then Create Group, Editing a Trunked Group
Here, you create as many groups as you need for all the zones you want.

However, you really need to understand Uniden DMA FAQ - The RadioReference Wiki and Programming Your Uniden Scanner 1st

Since you are paid subscriber to this site, you can get the automatic down loads of some or all of the systems in your area.. This can save you countless hours of programming and frustration. See:
Freescan File Import Radio Ref Trunked
,log on, select your state and county, and then Franklin County Public Safety Trunking System, see Freescan_RR_Trunk_Import, check the zones you want, and hit Import and skip all the Freescan instructions above:
