Robert,

New CHIRP users should click View and enable "Hide Unused Fields" (it
is supposed to be the default). Then only the fields that are required
based on the Tone Mode and Cross Mode selections will have values.

Tone Mode = (none) always works for receive only
Tone Mode = Tone and Tone = {CTCSS tone frequency} will work for most
ham repeaters.

Visit this page for some guides and examples. Most of it is based on
the Baofeng UV-5R but most holds true for other radios.
