[chirp_users] Truth or Fiction

Just got off the phone with a national amateur radio vendor, asking if they
had the cable for my FTM3200DR for sale.  I was told they have the cable
with the RT-Systems ADMS software, but not the cable by itself.  I told the
salesperson that I didn't need the software, that I had used CHIRP for
years and he proceeded to tell me "You know, you're not supposed to use
CHIRP with Yaesu radios...."  I cut him off before he got finished with his
statement and told him that it was an old wives' tale and not true.

That's the second time I've heard the same propaganda from that particular
vendor's sales team.
