danval, I looked up a pic of your scanner and it is pretty straightforward. If it is the 16 channel I was looking at, here is the step by step programming.
1- Push manual button to go to the channel you want to start programming.
2- Enter the freq number in.
3- Push the E button to enter it in the memory.
4- To review what you programmed, push the Review button.
5- Use manual button to step to next channel and start over from #2
That should get you started with the scanning hobby.
The scanner has a Priority button that when activated will stop scanning and go immediatly to the priority channel if someone keys their mic.
If you need freq's (or more of) for your area, go here and click on your state and county and it'll give you a complete listing.
Hope this helps you out, let us know,, Mechanic

I can't locate information specific to the 210XW, but hopefully this generic Bearcat programming info will help:
1. Press the MANUAL key to advance to the channel that you wish to reprogram.
2. Enter the new frequency, including decimal point.
3. Press the ENTER or E key.
4. Start over with step one to continue programming channels.

I've been unable to locate a manual for this old 16-channel scanner, but programming should work like this:
1. Turn the scanner ON
2. Press MANUAL to stop scanning
3. Press MANUAL repeated ly to advance to the desired channel (or enter the channel number followed by MANUAL)
4. Enter the desired frequency, including decimal point
5. Press E to enter and save
6. Back to number 3
