It was nice to see you posting about CHIRP..

CHIRP really makes even cheap Baofengs useful tools and it seems with each update the capabilities grow. I recommend downloading new versions whenever available...but keep a copy of the previous, working version in case the build breaks something. If you haven't explored the options under the "Settings" tab you really need to experiment with those features. Sure, it kind of silly to have my radios display "Welcome Blast" when I turn them on but it makes me giggle each time. Changing the colors of the background and font is much more useful.
