No. It is programmed from the Factory on a chip. Preprogrammed. No software will change it, no hacks. Many Motorola radios like that too. It is two watts, Vhf of Uhf, you did not say. If your existing frequencies are Business Band and in the same frequency band (Vhf or Uhf) you can get it to match those.
The Kenwood TK-3312e is a EU version of that handheld If you truly have that model# 3312e and not a TK-2312e.
Then you don't have VHF here the specs for the posted model# you gave.
Frequency Range: 400-470 MHz
5 Watt RF Output
128 Channels/128 Zones
Built-In Voice Scrambler
QT, DQT, DTMF and 5-Tone Signalling
FleetSync Digital Signalling, PTT ID and SelCall
1) are you within range,?
2) is there an obstruction between you and the repeater?
3) do you have the proper PL tome programmed for the repeater?
4) When you press transmit, is the correct input frequency displayed?
Makes and models make no difference as far as compatibility. Check the frequency coverage of the scanner you're looking at, and compare it to the operating frequencies of the Kenwood. If the Kenwwod is an HF model, the answer is a flat NO. If it's VHF or UHF, most Uniden scanners will be capable of reception. If you need more specific info, such as operating frequencies/modes for specific radios, please let us know.
Its so easy to use you really don't need a manual for the Uniden BC 142XL scanner.
Turn it on. Push the MANUAL button to stop it from scanning.
Push number 1, then push MANUAL again. This should leave you on
Using the keypad enter the frequency you want to monitor, then push
E. Press REVIEW at anytime to see what frequency is programmed
there. If the review button flashes 000.0000 on the display, you might be entering an invalid frequency. Refer to the frequency coverage list below.
Push MANUAL to step to channel number two. Enter the frequency. Push E. Push MANUAL to step to channel three. Repeat this process until
all ten channels are programmed, or you've run out of frequencies to
Push "SCAN" to start automatically scanning the frequencies. The
radio will stop when it hears someone talking, and resume scanning two
seconds after the conversation has stopped.
20 to 29.7 MHz (10 Meter "Ham" Band)
29.7 to 50 MHz (VHF Low Band)
50 to 54 MHz (6 Meter Amateur Band)
136 to 144 MHz (Military Land Mobile)
144 to 148 MHz (2 Meter "Ham" Band)
406 to 420 MHz (Federal Government Land Mobile)
420 to 450 MHz (70cm "Ham" Band)
450 to 470 MHz (UHF Standard Band)
470 to 512 MHz (UHF "T" Band)

Not sure what you want.....VHF band ius approximatly 130mhz to 175 mhz..... in that VHF band there is a commercial VHF band aprox. 155 mhz to 175...... the amateur radio vhf band is aprox. 135 to 150mhz.
With amateur radio, any freq in that range can be used...... with commercial radio the FCC cangive a company any freq. in that range also.
If you are looking for FRS/GMRS frequencies they are UHF freqs not VHF.
So I'm not sure exactly what you want......sounds like you might want to program in FRS freqs into an Icom amateur radio. If thats the case you will need an Icom that will do UHF freqs.
