I didn’t know you had to subscribe to that.  I’ll try that and see what happens.
Thanks Jim.

Hi Kenny,

I think the issue is that there is no “Chesapeake” selection for
"County:". The closest choice is "Chesapeake city, VA" for which there
are probably no repeaters. I don't know if this is a mistake in CHIRP
or the RepeaterBook API.

If go to RepeaterBook.com, sign up for a free account, then you can go
to Chesapeake County and export the (3) 2 meter repeaters and (2) 70
centimeter repeaters as a CHIRP compatible CSV file and import that
into CHIRP.
