The 163 is a trunking scanner, so programming instructions are long and detailed, and they vary for each type of trunking system. Programming instructions are best explained in the factory operating manual. If you don't already have it, you can download/print the manual here:
You may also want to join a users group for the 163. Check Yahoo or just Google PRO-163.
