Baofeng BF-F8HP & CHIRP

Recommended Posts

Ontario had the right idea...they would put their own dnr radios in every ship that was hired.The last time I was in Dryden they had over 250 ships on hire and they all had dnr radios on board.

Hey Gents,

The trick to the Baofeng and Chirp is to use the Split function under Duplex rather than the +/-. It involves no math whatsoever. You simply set your tone, select Split, and input your TX Frequency. Also tone is very important when programming AB and BCFS channels, as they use up to 9 different tones for their repeaters. It is best to set "Mode" to Auto, this makes inputting data into Chirp much easier. When you copy the channels to the radio it will automatically determine whether the channel is FM or AM or whatever the mode is. Start with a New page in Chirp, don't even think about plugging in your radio yet. Click the "Show Empty" at the top to see a full list from 0-500 or whatever you set the parameters  to. You can make things easier by highlighting a group of channels that you know will have the same tone, right click, go to properties. Now you can click "Tone", set your preferred tone, and press ok. This will really speed things up for you.

 

If anyone needs any help with Chirp and Baofeng radios, let me know. Depending on the interest, I may start offering a programming service for FireLine, FireNet, Simplex, and Duplex Forestry channels in BC and Alberta.

Cheers,

FYI for those of you working in the States, hears a thread about the FCC taking action against a retailer selling Baofengs.

Industry Canada could easily take similar actions up here as those radio break so many of the certification requirements for operation on commercial frequencies. Now will they? Probably not as their budget has been cut back even more then TC's.
