Ok this is the same scanner as the GRE600 RadioShack 197 if you want software I use win500 If you want to do this by hand you need to visit this site Easier to Read Pro-651/652/106/197 - WS1040/1065 - PSR 500/600 Digital Scanner Manual If you plan to use the software option I would say you need to get a premium subscription for radio reference so you can download from the database here which is the fast option to get you up and running.

As for now look at the RR Database make notes for what you want and how you want it setup so you will get up and running in no time.

Sorry was out of pocket all day working. It is nice that Whistler is putting the cable in the box with the scanners.
