Chirp you download from here:https://trac.chirp.danplanet.com/chirp_daily/LATEST/
Can't send you the file as you didn't say which computer OS you were using.
To use GMRS, all of those users NOT in your immediate family (and you) will need to apply for a GMRS license from the FCC. GMRS is only for non-commercial use. You might be better looking at MURS.
Whichever, you will need type approved, pre-programmed radios, not generic Baofengs or similar.
The rules seem somewhat undefined on repeater hardware except that you are limited to 50 watts.

I am writing to see if anyone here might be willing to help us, potentially by writing and sending us the Chirp files needed to get us up and running. There is no internet or cell coverage where we’re going, but I’ll have a brief opportunity this coming Friday to sit with the radios and a computer and Chirp before we leave for the lighthouse on Saturday.
