You can hand program them.... but it takes a very long time and a few settings can only be changed with chirp. The programming cable is under 10$ on amazon, so easy and cheap.

So I followed all the videos and now have the chirp software downloaded and I have basic knowledge on how to use it. But I am confused on what to do next to get my radio communicating with other radios.

I have a Motorola that has 22 channels and 121 sub-channels on it, but I don't know how to get my Baofeg to work with it. Does anyone have advice that could solve this problem?

let's make it really simple...program your baofeng to transmit and recieve on channel 2-2 by putting in the freq in the chirp program...doesn't matter what bank you put the channel in, it doesn't have to be bank 2. I usually try to put the channel in the corresponding bank just to be easier to remember. Then have the motorola set to 2-2 and you are set. Make sense?

One simple trick is changing the DISPLAY setting in the chirp settings to NAME instead of FREQUENCY. This means that if you set the radio to 462.587 (channel 2) ctcss 71.9 (subchannel 2) you can name that pre-programmed setting "2-2" and it will display "2-2" rather than 462.587 on the front screen. VERY HANDY.

This is the setup I currently use. 2-2, 4-2, 6-2 and 17-18 for a private channel. Change your name in the first power on line to your last name or call sign. I plan to add some NOAA weather channels but I haven't had time yet.

So just to confirm these are really only for big ops and a separate normal FRS radio is needed for everyday SLAP games?

Hey guys! So, since I've gotten into the sport again, I figured I needed something a bit sturdier than my old FRS/GMRS radios. I've picked up a Baofeng UV-5R thanks to the recommendations on this thread, along with a programming cable. I've been tinkering around with Chirp, and have a pretty good handle on it. My question is, do we have a set of channels that we particularly use around here? I'd like to build a frequency set that I can exclusively for local play.

Unless there's a .img file someone has laying around that has all the info I need already, I wouldn't be upset about that. :)
