As I said in the other forum you posted same question in...download a program called Freescan.

It's easy way to program your scanner

It's a GREAT scanner! I got a 996T and a 996XT, both are great scanners. Not easy to program, but like he said D/L FreeScan and it will get you started with programing via computer. Later if you want you can try PROSCAN, ARC XT or whatever but FREESCAN is FREE and it will get your foot in the door so to speak. Read the WIKI's about trunking and about the 996XT, there is lots of INFO right here on RR
