Hello, I have purchased this model of radios from, some of which came with repeated channels. They said they provide software for programming but cannot find any on their site and CHIRP doesn't support this model. Will you add this model to CHIRP?

  • Status changed from New to Feedback
  • Priority changed from Urgent to Normal

This is likely a variant of the BF-888s. I would give that a try.

Have you tried the BF-888 driver as suggested?
