Target version:chirp-daily
Chirp Version:daily Platform:Linux
Model affected:Baofeng GT-3TP


CHIRP v.4.2
Choosing Baofeng, BF-F8HP easily communicates with the radio, I can download data from the radio and I can send data to the radio.
The problem is in the configuration of the CHIRP software, which does not download all positions of memory cells from the radio, it does not create appropriate columns in radio channels window, which also allows the programming of the radio.
The columns that are missing are:
2. OFFSET (frequency shift) >>>>(00.000...69.990)
3. R-DCS (Reception Digital Coded Squelch)>>>>(OFF/D023N...D7541)
4. R-CTS (Reception Continuous Tone Coded Squelch)>>>>67.0Hz...254.1Hz)
5. T-DCS (Transmission Digital Coded Squelch)>>>>(OFF/D023N...D7541)
6. T-CTS (Transmission Continuous Tone Coded Squelch)>>>>67.0Hz...254.1Hz)

Hi Sylwester,

You are using a 7 year old version of CHIRP (v0.4.2). It does not support the GT-3TP and many other modern radios. You should remove it and install a recent daily build (as of today the latest build is chirp-daily-20190303).

CHIRP uses the Duplex and Offset columns to program the RX frequency and TX frequency into a memory.

CHIRP uses the Tone Mode, Tone, ToneSql, DTCS Code, DTCS Rx Code, DTCS Pol and Cross Mode columns to program the selective squelch settings.

Please take a look at these CHIRP Guides and Examples from the Miklor website.

I must be missing something then because when I download the daily my the offset STILL does not show up on my radio (??) I have a GT-3TP

  • Status changed from Feedback to Closed
  • Target version set to chirp-daily
  • Model affected changed from GT-3TP to Baofeng GT-3TP

The original ticket is pretty much resolved.
I think it's better to close this ticket, and to ask you, the GT-3TP users, to open a new ticket for any remaining issue.
