It is actually not too hard, BUT, you have to understand the Menu and the knob to push in.

STARS can be a challenge depending on ability to receive a strong and stable control channel signal.

For STARS start simple with only a single Control Channel and a few of the most active Talk Groups.

You now need to add Talk Groups if you have a System and Site (frequency). Now choose Edit Group, New Group, enter a Talk Group ID and then a name for the Talk Group.

It is possible to program vial the scanner panel, just a bit slower and not quite a flexible or forgiving.

First off you need to program it as a P25 Standard not a one frequency. The talk groups are programmed into "Groups". Read the Easier-to Read Manual and become familiar with the scanner.

I can program Uniden scanners with my eyes closed, but give me a GRE scanner and I'm lucky if I can turn the darn thing on. It doesn't mean it is a bad scanner, they are just two different animals.
