      I'm a long-time GRE user and have many GRE radios, but just recently picked
      up a BC396XT and am struggling to learn how this thing works and getting
      it programmed.

      Is there a very intuitive online site that helps you under stand the quick
      keys and all that? I picked up the 396 so I could learn Uniden's radios,
      but I'm really having fits learning it having been in the GRE world for so
      long. If you know of any website that helps understand this radio,
      especially in conjunction with programming by software, please include some links.

      Also, what program would you recommend using for the 396? I've tried a
      few of the free ones and am not sure I like how they work. I'm willing to
      pay as much as I need to in order to find a program that makes programming
      the radio a cinch, letting me see everything programmed in the radio with
      ease. The free programs seem to take so long to upload and download, a much
      different experience than I have had with the programs for the GRE scanners.
      Please don't recommend the free programs as I am ready to move on to
      paying for the best program possible for this radio.

          I certainly recognize you from the GRE yahoo groups

          I have a 396 XT and you are correct it's much different from my GRE 600 both
          operation and programming



          My experience for software is different from yours

          I paid for one and hated it..

          I only use Freescan now and it doesn't seem to take any longer than the
          PSREdit software for me, but it certainly is different in setup and
          operation.



          The hard part is getting used to the SQK (System Quick Keys) vs Scan Lists
          for the GRE



          It might be helpful if you asked more specific questions.



          I printed off a manual (sent to Kinkos and had printed) and that helped a
          lot.let me see if I can find which one it was.

            Cris:

            I am willing to sit down with an online manual. I don't need to print it out, if you know of one. The online website that Uniden includes on the CD in the box with the radio isn't intuitive to me if you have to keep jumping around pages. If there is a PDF or something, I could handle that.

                        I'm a long-time GRE user and have many GRE radios, but just recently picked
                        up a BC396XT and am struggling to learn how this thing works and getting
                        it programmed.

                        Is there a very intuitive online site that helps you under stand the quick
                        keys and all that? I picked up the 396 so I could learn Uniden's radios,
                        but I'm really having fits learning it having been in the GRE world for so
                        long. If you know of any website that helps understand this radio,
                        especially in conjunction with programming by software, please include some links.

                        Also, what program would you recommend using for the 396? I've tried a
                        few of the free ones and am not sure I like how they work. I'm willing to
                        pay as much as I need to in order to find a program that makes programming
                        the radio a cinch, letting me see everything programmed in the radio with
                        ease. The free programs seem to take so long to upload and download, a much
                        different experience than I have had with the programs for the GRE scanners.
                        Please don't recommend the free programs as I am ready to move on to
                        paying for the best program possible for this radio.

                        Thanks and 73, Chuck, N2DUP | scanning1.com | twitter.com/ChuckGysi

                          which helped, but when I got Freescan it became clear --- strongly recommend
                          FreeScan --- its free, intuitive and helps you to sort out the structure..



                          Good luck

                          I am willing to sit down with an online manual. I don't need to print it
                          out, if you know of one. The online website that Uniden includes on the CD
                          in the box with the radio isn't intuitive to me if you have to keep jumping
                          around pages. If there is a PDF or something, I could handle that.
