> First time Chirp user here.. was looking to program local repeaters into my BF-F8HP and made it all the way to the Repeaterbook Query.  After exceuting the query I get an "Unknown file format" error.  I tried to research this under the issues and found it is an new issue with Repeaterbook changing to cloudfare. It looked like there may be some suggested work arounds, but they were way over my head.  Is there something I can do to fix, or is this an issue to get fixed/patched in the future? Thank you very much for helping a totally confused new user.

Yep, this was caused by RepeaterBook moving to CloudFlare. I made a change to CHIRP to sidestep an issue with that which was merged today, and will be in tomorrow's build. Check back here tomorrow morning and the build system should have published a new build which includes the fix.
