Hi
Then maybe the question is can the Android tablet be loaded or made
dual boot with say Xubuntu, because CHIRP runs well on my laptop with it 
now. No adapting of anything.
I have been playing around with my laptop and Yaesu VX5R and have
figured out some of the editing features of Chirp and been able to load 
some new memories with it. Now to see if I can find a 6 pin connector to 
make an adapter for my FT2800 so I can save it's memories and add/change 
some of them for my new local area.

Good luck all.
