I’m contributing to the Technical Documentation of CHIRP

I am now a contributing editor of Technical documentation for the CHIRP project. CHIRP is a free, open-source tool for programming your ham radio. It supports a large number of manufacturers and models, as well as provides a way to interface with multiple data sources and formats. With CHIRP you can easily upload or download frequency settings to/from your supported ham radio. Many people report difficulty even remembering how to program this sort of info into their ham radios by hand, and many ham radios have hundreds of memories. CHIRP makes it easy, and also allows you to save a backup of all those settings, or even transfer your favorite stations from one amateur radio to another.

CHIRP is a Python project, and it runs under Mac OS X, Windows & Linux.


I started with the “Mac OS Tips” documentation.

  1. I have an old Yaesu Vertex VX10, wonderful radio. The programing software uses DOC with timing loops appropriate to a 12MHz CPU. I can boot into DOS, but the timing loops are too short with a more modern CPU. Unfortunately chirp software does not support the VX10.

    Any suggestions,
