      Hello again,

      Okay, good. We know where we are now I think.

      In FreeScan click on File and then click Import then click on Radio
      Reference Conventional or Radio Reference Trunked. Enter your user login
      name and password for Radio Reference. Select your country, state/province
      and county. Then select each system you want from the list presented and
      click Import. Do this for all the systems you want for the type you selected
      (conventional or trunked). Exit button at the top right of the form when
      done. As you import systems you will see them show up on the main FreeScan
      form. Do the same thing for the other system type.

      You will need to set System Quick Key and Group Quick Key information on
      each of the systems and then, assuming you have already verified that you
      are connected to the scanner click the Scanner and Up arrow button (Upload)
      and follow the screen prompts for uploading the systems to your scanner.

      Now assuming that I understand where you try this and let us know how it
      worked out for you.

      Thank you,
      I have subscribed to Radio Reference, and I downloaded both FreeSCAN and
      ProScan. Someone tole me the Import the information from Radio Reference to
      FreeSCAN, but I don't see the Import button on FreeSCAN or Reaio Reference.
      I am at a loss on how to get the frequences from Radio Reference to
      FreeSCAN. I click on download on Radio Reference, but all it does it to take
      me to another page, I click on upload than check all, but nothing shows up
      in the box. I found out yesterday whilw playing around with FreeSCAN other
      informanion when I right click on the box in FreeSCAN before you clock on
      any of the upload or download buttens.
      I like the older scanners much better than this one. This programming from
      PC to scanner is not good for thoes that don't have a PC. The man that
      bought it don't have a PC and thats why I have been working on it for alomst
      a month now. But I will keep trying.
      Thank you for your time in this matter.

      In order to use Radio Reference to program a scanner via a PC you have to
      have a software package that supports the transfer. You cannot just go to
      Radio Reference and download directly to your scanner. I would suggest that
      you download FreeScan from ScanNow.org. That program's author is the one who
      gave you information about the import feature (which is located under the
      File menu item). To directly import to your scanner from FreeScan (or any
      software package that works for the 346XT and supports downloading from
      Radio Reference) you will need to subscribe for a membership. FreeScan also
      has a feature that lets you copy and paste from Radio Reference but it is
      not automatic.

      Hopefully I have understood your problem correctly and this will get you
      moving in the right direction.

      I don't see the Import button and I can't slect the frequencies unless I
      highlight them. There is no place to check, the frequencies I want to
      download. I click on Reference Databace, than Ohio, than Harrison County,
      and I get the freguencies, and a map of the county and State. There is a
      place at the top that say download, but that takes me to a page that tells
      me to buy a membership, get a program, than sign in, but nothing else to
      hepl me to understand how to download the frequencies. I have had this for
      almost a month now, and my friend that wanted it is getting upset. The store
      where I bought it won't take it back. He paid $268.00 for it and wants his
      money back if I can't get it to work, but both Uniden and the store said he
      is stuck with it and for me to cotact Radio Reference about the programming
      problem. I have a RadioShack scanner where all I had to do was program the
      frequencies one at a time, nothing like this headake.

      To use the RR import feature, you have to click on the button called
      "Import" after you have made your selections. It will then download the
      systems to FreeSCAN. Then you use the Upload To Scanner function to send
      them to your scanner.

      Reference that I want to download, than I click on download and it takes me
      to the page that tells me how Radio Reference works. So I was playing around
      and clicked on Law Enforcement, Fire/EMS, Ham and tage the frequencies, than
      go back and click on download, click on check all, but nothing shows up in
      the box. This is on FreeSCAN. I just don't know how to program from the pc
      to the scanner. I know how to program a scanner where you put the frequency
      in one at a time.Bob
