Right on! I dug out my UV-5R to see about programming it with CHIRP - any chance a EG / Sac Ham has a local file for repeaters? Otherwise is the best route to use repeaterbook online?

Thanks and hope to connect soon + chat on the weekly net!

I used Chirp for my other HT and works as advertised. For repeaters I just use the repeaterbook online and manually input the frequencies, etc. or the Chirp software of course.

Repeater Book when I’m traveling... for local repeaters some one from my club gave me an CSV document that I copy and paste into my programming software... and the. I learned that my IC7100 loads in the offset automatically and all I need to do is find the tone.
