    I’m lazy, and would appreciate not having to fight CHIRP to enter the local Repeaters into my Baofeng UV5Ra. 144 and 440 frequencies I can get from High Point/Greensboro with the Baofeng. If anyone is feeling generous and has already won the battle with CHIRP, please send a file to KJ4VSM@gmail.com. Thanks in advance!

    Mark, I’m going to send you one now. Hopefully it has what you need. It might actually have more than you want, but it could be a good place for you to start!

    Mark, you probably know this already, but you can import directly into Chirp from repeaterbook and radioreference. That’s what I’ve been doing.

    In case Scott’s file leaves you unfulfilled, lol.

    I can work up one for you too with Chirp if you like Mark, I also do what Fred does and pull them from Repeaterbook in the Chirp program.

    We should get some programming files for some of the popular radios for this area on the site.

    Thanks, all, I appreciate it. It gets frustrating when the Chirp won’t take a change, and keeps setting offset back to 0.000, or tone keeps reverting. I am just copying and pasting whole rows, which seems to work best!

    OT perhaps… 😉 My problem with my UV-5R is that my wife had it hostage in her car for several weeks. The day I threw away the rapid charger I found the radio again. One of my favorite uses is as a simple broadcast FM receiver when I’m on my bike. It was like a little slice of Christmas when I found that lost radio in her car.
