A friend and I have Baofeng H/Ts that we have been using for the past
couple of weeks. They are all programmed with a Chirp file he put
together with all of the local repeaters, plus a couple of simplex
channels he uses for his church security. The security channels are on
channel 0, 1 and 2. When I copied the Chirp file into my Anytone
mobile, I couldn't hit the repeaters until I figured out all the channel
numbers were offset by +1 number on the Anytone. Apparently the Anytone
doesn't want to have a channel #0. Once I understood what happened it
was easy enough to offset the channel numbers in the Anytone file to get
them where they were supposed to be. I was wondering if this was
normal for some radio memory registers to start with "0" and some with "1".
Also my Anytone Chirp file sometimes hangs up or freezes, while I
haven't had any problems with the Baofeng Chirp files. It usually
freezes during a cut and paste operation or during an import or
operation. Not a huge problem but sometimes annoying. Should I be
downloading new daily Chirp builds?
