Step 1 on the "Beginner's guide" is "download contents from the radio":


Any piece of radio programming software will require you to do this
first, unless you want to destroy all the settings currently in the
radio. CHIRP doesn't provide a File->New function for an uploadable
image, because unlike other software packages that are only designed
for one radio and thus know what sort of image to initialize, we'd have
to have a drop-down box with all 80+ models.
