Idel Monitor-While I dont blame you for being frustrated you are one crabby person lately.
Did you get smacked down by others on here? Whats your frustration?
I've read this thread from the start, take 2 steps back, first of all, being new I'm sure this is all Greek to you. We've all been there. You can program the scanner by hand, what you will do in 2 days, you can do in half the time with software, not importing from here, I mean entering the info into the software. Download one of the software packages, install it, run it, maybe after you see what's involved with the software, you'll understand why it's easier using it, rather than enter the info by hand. Links have been provided for you to learn, and find frequency info, take your time, fool with it, then if you see it's not bad, by the programing cable, and upload the info you entered into the program to your scanner. Then in the future if you want to make changes, edit, add or whatever, the program will have that file to work on. Your not going to learn that scanner in 1 day. After all that, then the questions you have, when posted here will make sense, and answers will follow. Also, knowing where you live is usually the first question all members here usually get, most assume we know where they live. Hang in there, read, read, fool and it will come to you, in time. Good Luck..what will the softwear do for me??? will it already have mississauga police, fire and ambulance frequencies loaded for me?
In many ways I agree with you that people seem lazy. What I think you are forgetting is:No, I haven't, I think I might just stop replying to some posts on here though, while I realize some people are new, and we've all been there before, it really isn't that hard of a concept to find the database here, and it's not that hard for people to do a bit of research here and it's not that hard for people to reread the thread that they've started.
Lately people have been coming here hoping that the information is gonna be just handed to them, we provide the links, we provide the direction, and they still fail to see it in front of them.
I'm the same way with a friend of mine, who's in the process of getting back into the scanning scene, we used to own radios back when you just simply entered the frequency hit enter and boom you heard what ya wanted, while I have given him all the direction and the links for him to read through, some people are just simply lazy. I'm gonna end up just programming the radio for him with free software and he'll be on his marry way..
I've been in this boat before, being a newbie, especially to the world of digital, but I took it with patience and learned the ins and outs of frequencies, systems, digital, analog etc....etc....etc...., it's simple read the info that people provide for you, and a person will eventually find the answers on there own. I will admit, I'm not one for reading manuals etc...but I will little by little, but I'm more apt to just dig right in, get me to the info, and I'll build it on my own, or just simply learn it on my own, after a few questions have been answered.
I mean no ill will towards people on here, but I just find some people are just coming in here wayyyyyy too lazy that's all.

When I first got my 246 I loaded up files from the Yahoo group Steve ownes. That way I was able to look how the files were concocted i.e. and made adjustments on my own and eventually new files. I found it helpful for a starting point.
