Post by Stevo » Thu Aug 08, 2019 3:39 pm

We now have the current release of Chirp, 20190718, in our test repository.
CHIRP is a free, open-source tool for programming your amateur radio. It supports a large number of manufacturers and models, as well as provides a way to interface with multiple data sources and formats.

CHIRP can handle data in the following formats:

- Comma Separated Values (.csv)
- Comma Separated Values generated by RT Systems (.csv)
- EVE for Yaesu VX-5 (.eve)
- Kenwood HMK format (.hmk)
- Kenwood commercial ITM format (.itm)
- Icom Data Files (.icf)
- ARRL TravelPlus (.tpe)
- VX5 Commander Files (.vx5)
- VX7 Commander Files (.vx7)

Most popular modern amateur radios are supported by CHIRP via their interface cables.
Please let us know how it installs and performs if you give it a try. Thanks!

It all looks good but my gear is a bit like me, ancient. Had my amateur licence since 1950 and the equipment is a bit old for programming. Thanks anyway.

You might tap your receiver's RF, run it through a RTL-SDR, and look at the signal on your computer.
