CHIRP Support

CHIRP WEBSITE

Repeaterbook has offered CHIRP support since 2011. Repeaterbook offers importing from within the CHIRP program directly from Repeaterbook.com or by exporting from Repeaterbook.com and manually importing to CHIRP.

Importing from within CHIRP is extremely easy, but the search options are somewhat limited. More customized searches can be completed within Repeaterbook.com and transferred to CHIRP.
