I never had a RS scanner. I got one cause all I read says they are so much better at decoding P25

Can anyone help me?
Programming tips can be found in the Wiki.

There's also step by step instructions in the "Easier to Read" manual.

As far as finding someone more local to you, who could more quickly help you program via software, you might want to request your thread be moved to the Kentucky Forum. You can do that by clicking the red-outlined triangle in the upper right ('report thread', then in the window that opens, make a request that the thread be moved.

I have KSP post 14 (Greenup, Ashland & Carter) programmed as automatic with the proper NAC. Last time I was in that area I had no trouble at all. Pro 106.

Conventional P-25 is programmed in as FM. No need to get complicated with the firmware. I used my 106 on a trip through KY in July. No problems copying the KSP from the Tennessee border to OH.
