Hi
Looks like no one can help, to program the 380 you will need a Amateur radio ID then you need a programming lead, and then what is called a code plug, which is a fancy name for a program that tells the radio which frequency to tx/rx on.

then you need the software to edit to be able to program the radio, what you need to do is search your area for the local repeaters and then you need the Frequency, colour code and the talk groups you need for each repeater, the edit the code plug for each zone and then upload to the radio

Loads of Step by step videos on youtube, if you can get a local codeplug that will help.
