Hello,

Might be right in front of my face but I can't seem to figure it out. I have no problem programming pagers, scanners and radios. But digital seems to stump me. I was able to read a radio to get the information I needed for the frequency and I was able to program it no program into a radio. Not exactly sure how I got it to work lol but anyway now I would like to have it in my Uniden scanner but can't figure out how to get it programmed in properly. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

If it's your 346 Scanner, refer to the Easier to Read Manual

That may be an ANALOG only scanner.

"Trunk Tracker III Operation - follows conversations on analog Motorola, EDACS, EDACS SCAT, and LTR trunked radio systems, including systems in VHF, UHF, 800 MHz, and 900 MHz bands. This scanner can't monitor digital systems. "

Looking at his recent postings he has a Uniden BC346XTC.
Thanks for the info!

That may be an ANALOG only scanner.

Yep, the BC346XT is an analog only scanner.

While you might be able to "program" the frequency into the scanner, if it's digital, you won't be able to actually monitor anything.

Notes on programming a frequency can be found in this page

But, again, if the frequency is digital, you won't hear anything other than noise.

I have a home patrol 1 and 2 as well. I’m trying to program it into the HP2

If conventional digital, (NON TRUNKED)
Create an FL or add to an existing one.
Create a New System..
To create a "one frequency trunk" System (First select the right flavor type P25/DMR/NXDN).
Create a Department for TG's. (Add TG's if known) Use ID search mode to find TG's..
Create a Site to add the frequency.
