Sorry I'm pretty much a noob when it comes to this stuff. I used to have my PRO-97 trunking until my county switched to APCO-25 and so I bought a PRO-96.

My question is what is required to program APCO-25 in.

For example at http://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?ctid=2004

Do you just plug in all the freqs listed under Grand Forks, City Of? Do you need to do anything with input freqs? Also, is there no more talk groups?

Oops, I just realized I posted this in the wrong forum.

Mods: Please move to APCO-25, ASTRO, and Digital Trunking Discussion

They should move it to Radio Shack actually, but for now if your talking about what's directly on the page you linked to it's simply convention with APCO-25 being used, no trunking. Just program it as conventional FM.

What about the input freqs?

Those are the repeater inputs aren't really needed, if you have the memory space you could put them in. Generally you will only hear one side of the conversation if you use them, you also need to be close to the person or vehicle transmitting.
