I'm starting now with CHIRP, so I have some questions about the correct location for posting questions.

I wonder if the Zastone Z-218 radio is supported by CHIRP? Do I need the specific radio cable to program through the computer?

The list of Supported Radios has a Zastone BJ-218, which appears to be identical with the Z-218.
And yes, you will need a specific programming cable which fits your radio.

I'm closing this ticket for several reasons:
1) the title was misleading (there is no Zastone Z-2018)
2) it is apparent that the BJ-218 is identical with the Z-218.
If you believe that this ticket shouldn't have been closed, then please let us know.
