Description

OS: OS X 10.10.5 (Yosemite)

Chirp Version: Various

Error Message: "Suds library required for RadioReference.com import. Try installing your distribution's python-suds package."

Before dismissing this out-of-hand, understand that I have looked up and tried every "solution" for this problem that I have found on the internet, including in your bug tracker.

I've tried both using the downloaded chirp binary after installing kk7ds, and installing it via homebrew with and without kk7ds.

I've tried manually installing suds via pip and easy_install, with and without sudo, in both kk7ds and homebrew-installed python.

I've tried manually copying the suds package files to both kk7ds and the homebrew-installed python.

Attempts to install suds, using and not using --target folder invariably tell me suds is already installed.

I've tried building from source.

I've tried removing and re-installing via homebrew and manually.

By the way: "which python" always shows the homebrew-installed version:

$ which python
#=> /usr/local/bin/python

$ ls -la /usr/local/bin/python
#=> lonny admin 34 Mar 23 19:12 /usr/local/bin/python -> ../Cellar/python/2.7.13/bin/python

I am aware that a similar bug was rejected in 2014 as being a duplicate of a "solved" issue, but none of those solutions have so far worked.

One example, with all prior builds first uninstalled:

lonny$ brew install tdsmith/ham/chirp

History

Updated by Lonny Eachus almost 3 years ago

Right after "successfully" installing chirp as above, as per the instructions on your site, I do this:

Radio > Query data source > RadioReference.com

Result: see first screenshot. (I do have an account.)

I click OK. Result: see second screenshot.

No amount of trying online "solutions" has yet changed this. It is 100% consistent.

Im having this issue too. Ive installed suds and still not working.

Updated by Todd Skobjak over 1 year ago

I third this notion. I have a Mac OS X 10.13 (High Sierra). No matter what I've done, I cannot get the RadioReference Frequency Database to query so that I can use it. Please advise.

Can confirm and update that all of the above is still current.

I too am running into this issue when attempting to Query external data from radioreference.com

Try typing this from the Terminal.app:

sudo easy_install -z suds

Then restart CHIRP.app

I would call this at least a bug that requires better documentation at a minimum.

This did fix the problem, in my MacOS Mojave.

It took almost 3 years for me to find out about using easy_install... I agree that it should be much better documented.
