Hi Mark,

Chirp support all the models in the Kenwood Families/Series "60" and "60G" and that's a lot of variants (I'm the author/developer/maintainer of the driver for chirp). The Family/Serie "60G" includes all the variants of the TK-760G.

The logic in the detection of the sub-bands and US/EU types are hidden from the users, just remains the expanded freq limits that in some models are widened to cover the adjacent ham bands.

About the interface for programming, a simple/cheap ebay RS232 to TTL level converter wired in the correct way (and with the proper drivers) is sufficient for the TK-760G, the TK-7160 can be another monster like the one the TK-790 use, but I don't know it so I can't tell.

  • Status changed from New to Feedback

About the TK-7160E, the workflow to request support for a new radio reduces to this (Express version):

1 - Search in the site (this site) if the support for the radio has not been requested.
2 - If there is a request, just comment on it about you supporting that request and maybe loaning your radio for the cause.
3 - If there isn't any request for your radio: just make it (Please just one radio per request) just mark the issue as a new model request and optionally if you can loan your radio tick the box about it.
4a - A developer sees the request and it has the radio and start to develop the chirp driver for it.
4b - A developer see the request and he don't have the radio, he check that the users offers a loan and the developers get in touch with the author to get the radio an develop a chirp driver for it.

The 4 step in any variant is the longer one, not for developers shortage, just for developer's time availability to do the job, please do walk and read more details on the wiki pages.
