August Club Meeting

Programming Your Radio with CHIRP

In-person: LARC Clubhouse (4420 NW 41st St., Lincoln).
Zoom: (meeting: 937 5139 3405; Passcode: 554816).

So, you have a new radio, but how do you program it? CHIRP is a free, open-source software programming package for ham radios, and it simplifies the process by allowing you to use a single tool to update most radios.

We will cover the basics of using CHIRP, focusing on programming Baofeng radios. Topics will include choosing a cable, common issues under Windows, and the basics of operating CHIRP.

Repeater lists are constantly in flux, but the list I use is available at under “other files.” This is the list I will use during the presentation.
