CHIRP is a free, open-source tool for programming your amateur radio. It supports a large number of manufacturers and models, as well as provides a way to interface with multiple data sources and formats.


To get started:
  1. Download CHIRP for your platform
  2. Check out the "How_To_Get_Help" page, and the rest of the Documentation.
  3. Join the mailing list!
  4. Be sure to review the FAQ.
In case you ran into a problem with Chirp:
  1. Before you open a new ticket, you might want to consult the documentation. On the right side of this web page, you will find some links to the Wiki. It contains good input for many re-occuring issues.
  2. Also, please perform a search through all open and closed issues. Maybe someone else had the same problem before, and a solution is already available.
  3. Once you have looked through the Wiki and searched all open/closed issues, you can open a new ticket. There, you may file a bug report, request a new feature, or request the implementation of a new radio. Please be detailed and follow the instructions in "How To Report Issues".


If you are a vendor and want to have your radio supported by chirp, please see InformationForVendors
