Hi Jim,

When I go to select the radio type, it only goes up to the UV6D, and I have an 8D.  Can I use the 6D type?

Thank you,

CHIRP works with a lot of radios. No matter which one, you have to download from the radio first so CHIRP knows which radio you are dealing with. You will see the radio Vendor/Model in the tab. Your tab likely says "Generic CSV" and cannot be uploaded to any radio. Save a copy of your downloaded tab "just in case". Then edit it as needed and upload it to your radio.

You can still copy-and-paste the work you did on you generic tab to your KG-UV8D tab. It will probably need some settings tweaked, though.
