|Amateur, or ham radios, have become increasingly capable over the years, adding features that once were not even dreamed of. This is especially true of handheld radios that can now easily reach the other side of the world with ease using newer digital protocols. |
Unfortunately, this has led to the radios being increasingly hard to program. What used to take a couple of minutes to set the frequency, offset, and tone for a couple of local repeaters has turned into something that can take hours of frustration to get anywhere.
Today, the vast majority of popular handheld radios can be programmed using the open-source and freely available software called CHIRP. This too has a downside, it has no documentation to speak of.
While CHIRP is fairly straight forward and easy to use once you know what you are doing, it can be daunting for the new radio operator who doesn’t understand the terms or even the basics of radio communications.
That’s where Getting Started with CHIRP Radio Programming comes in, guiding you from start to finish to getting your radio up and running fast and easy.
Whether you are running Windows, MacOS, or even Linux, this guide walks you through the installation of the software and then covers every menu option in the software.
