It's not connected with Chirp and needs to be deleted, along with the poster.

One of the main attractions of HAM is that in an emergency, you can take care of yourself, your loved ones, or better yet, help out others ( a foreign concept for some outside the United States, and to most millenials, who would rather more government aid, intervention and rations.)

In turn, downloading broadcastify or a number of other apps allows you to listen to rf coms world wide and makes the idea of HAM seem irrelevant. but when the cell towers go down, or a world wide DNS attack happens, or any of the millions of other scenarios that could possibly "bring down the net", HAM is still a viable alternative, especially in remote areas or during emergencies, especially using simplex.  I visited Yosemite National Park several months ago, and once you leave the valley near the hotel and cabins, your phone becomes a paperweight. Listening to the conversations of nearby youths, the idea that mobile service not existing there seemed beyond the realm of possibility. Likewise, during an emergency, cell service may be limited, either from the emergency, or through carrier rationing, and communication during such events can make a big difference.

For better or worse, the removal of morse code has allowed many people to try the hobby with nearly no effort at all to become licensed other than downloading an app and memorizing the answers.  In any case, to use and familiarize yourself with CHIRP will enable you to program numerous radio devices with linux.

I can launch Chirp, but when I try to download an image, I receive an error report. I speculate that it is due to the cable driver. The error reads: Radio did not respond. Do you have any suggestions? The installation was on an iMac. Your assistance would be appreciated! Sincerely,
