Description

Howdy!

I really like being able to pull data from RepeaterBook. I'm curious, is there an integration with mygrms.com in the works? I use that site to look up GMRS repeaters and would love to be able to quickly pull that into a Chirp file.

Thanks!

As a ham, I've been using Chirp for a number of years now, and really like its usability and functionality, particularly compared to some manufacturer's company software which is very limited in features. I am also a licensed GMRS user, and would like to use Chirp to program several of my GMRS radios. As of now, there are very few actual GMRS radios supported by Chirp, but I expect more will be added over time.

Adding support from MyGMRS would be beneficial to programming these radios as they are added to Chirp, in the same way that using RepeaterBook does for ham radios.

By the way, I'd like to thank the Chirp team and supporters for the efforts put forth into this project. It is probably the most-used program in my ham radio software arsenal!

Yes. Getting myGMRS.com integrated onto CHIRP would be very helpful!

Agreed, please update the Chirp files with the repeater references found on myGMRS.com. This would be greatly appreciated as I have two GMRS radios on their way to me and using Chirp for my Baofeng definitely was a much easier task than trying to program everything manually. Plus, the added primary benefit of having all this information in one place to find it.
