    I'm a rookie myself but I'd be willing to give it a shot. I do mine but I make no guarantees and you might drive here for nothing. No need to offer the beer though. What programming are you looking for?
    My 'c' isn't working so I have to use substitutes.

    Is a config you guys can export? I'm never got my radios programmed. I have no freaking clue what I'm doing in Chirp.

    If I knew what I was doing I probably could but I don't. Do you have the cord for it?

    I didn’t order the cable yet. I guess I’ll just program my channels manually. The only ones I’d need chirp for are the weather channels but I have them on my cb. I bought 2 so figure plugging into a computer would save time and effort, not sure how much work is required using the app anyway.

    Mirkit Radio Baofeng UV-5R MK5 8W MP Max Power 2020 1800 mAh Li-Ion Battery Pack, Baofengradio corp.

    $55.75 (Prime)

    This is not a good price.
    go to radioddity.com or click on the link below for better prices, usually with $10.00 off if you give and email addy.

    https://www.radioddity.com/collectio...rice-ascending
    it looks like they have the same radio listed for $29.99
    But you have to use their software to bring the UHF freq up from 480.000 to 520.000
    Not difficult to do. it give direction on the site. https://www.radioddity.com/collectio...-two-way-radio

    for those who want to listen in on local air traffic, police, fire, ems, ect
    click on this link below, it will take you to a page on the www.radioreference.com web

    https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?stid=42

    Click on your state, then scroll down to your county and click on it. scroll down and
    the page will show you all the law enforcement, municipal , schools, airport frequencys.
    the freqs with the higher numbers ( such as 500.66250) are UHF ( ultra hi freqs)
    the frqs with the lower numbers ( such as 154.34000 ) are the VHF ( very hi freqs.)

    if you buy a baofeng, make sure it has the upper UHF above 500
    like
    Frequency Range: 136-174 / 400-520 MHz or learn to hack it in chirp like i did on you tube.
    And for gods sake buy the $6.99 programing cable.
    Just remember to change the TX (talk) freqs to something like a GMRS freq, (467.7250 MHz) so you DO NOT
    interrupt an EMS broadcasts when you mistakenly push the talk button when you pick it up.
