Monitoring Detroit Fire Department on 396T

For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to set up Freescan to program my Uniden 396T to listen to the DFD. At one time, I was a wiz at this, but I took a couple years off and lo & behold, the software I was familiar with is obsolete. I'm trying to feel my way through it, but I'm clueless. Any help would be appreciated.

Being that I'm in Southfield, should I be using the Southfield System Frequencies as well, possibly to get better reception of the Detroit Fire Talkgroups?

What exactly is the system type? I understand that the MPSCS is a Project 25 Phase I (FDMA) system, but what setting does that coincide with on Freescan?

I'm in over my head. Again, any help would be greatly, greatly appreciated.

I think you're well outside of the range of that system - have you tested while inside Detroit?

From my understanding, almost all of the Detroit TGs are only carried on the Detroit towers, so you will not hear much on the Southfield site.
