Y'know, I have heard more than 1 ham claim that chirp is "dangerous" and/or
junk, but when pressed, they all either heard it from someone else or they
expect the same sort of experience you get when you pay for an integrated
solution, like RT Systems.  Chirp works. You have to pay attention to the
details like proper cable selection, but it works. It's not an out- of- the
box solution. It's more in the spirit of ham radio.
