Free Radio Programming software

Postby jj » Tue Apr 30, 2013 2:00 pm

Was hanging out on the HAM channels while driving down to VG and found out there is Open Source radio programming software that works for just about any radio I know of . We could set up all of our frequencies and then get everyones radios programmed.

You can enter in all the various channels, frequencies, offsets (for repeaters) etc. for all the frequencies you might use. Then you can load it into any of these radios. No more trying to figure out how to fiddle with a radio to get it to work with another, or only having a radio set to just work on one or two frequencies.

If your radio is already fully configured then there is no need for this. But seems some people have some difficulty with them. Once a master file is set up you can load any of these radio types with it.

Bumping this as some people wanted to know where to get the Chirp software to program their radios. Here it is in the link as above.
Note, get the daily build which typically has any new updates etc.

Also, keep the bandwidth to narrow, frequency step to 5k, and set squelch to 1. And get a decent antenna. ;)
