dan, tom, and others.
thanks to all for the help.
i tried with what i had found but its kind of like being handed a 
dictionary and told to speak a new language.
i finally found the beginners guide and then it started to make sense.

i don't think i need an  elmer.  i have elmered too many and made too 
many hams.
i just needed a quick language lesson.  now things are working ok.

thanks dave k7da

ps what is the .chirp file for?
