There are three programs that would work to program your scanner.
ARC500
PSREdit500
and Win500

See this Wiki page for more details:
Object Oriented Scanner Software - The RadioReference Wiki
All three software packages have a 30 day free trial period, so you can try any or all for a short time & decide which you like best.
Note that some people have experienced issues trying to purchase Win500. They can make their payment online, but are not always getting ab email with the license key, which is required if using beyond the 30 day trial period. The software's author used to be fairly active here on RadioReference, and also responded to complaints or questions. That has not been the case for quite a while, He has not posted on the forums, and inquiries sent through the website are not getting a response.

If you go to youtube there are videos on the WS1040. That's how I learned. Look fot the video programming a conventional channel.
