Go with Freescan, ProScan or ARCXT. Programming a scanner, particularly a trunked system is difficult and there are so many potentials for error.

You will see all kinds of YouTube videos on how to program conventional systems, but no one has tackled a trunked system because they are so problematic.

If you absolutely have to hand program, the manual gives step by step instructions. Uniden Support - Downloads and Manuals See page 35.

its a lot easier to program a scanner with software rather than by hand unless your a glutten for punishment like some people are.

No one answered his actual question though, he may not have a computer or not comfortable doing it.

Look at this video. Its the 396xt portable.
Where adds the control frequency, you'll also besides that need to add the frequency that's the alternate - in blue with the little 'a' that is used wherever you are located.
Where he says to add quickkey 1 for the group, not necessary imho I never use group quickkeys.

Programs the same way. Differences - Push the actual MENU button on the front and where he's turning the knob, you turn the silver knob-

Conventional
