I've been using Repeater Book to manually programme some repeaters in my area, up to fifteen miles. I later started programming some FRS, GMR, and MURS frequencies based on the CSV file that someone had given me. I've been having to do this because Chirp either doesn't recognise the Baofeng UV5R because the only option I see is Baofeng UV5R3, or because I have a Prolific cable instead of a Chipset one.
First, the FRS channels have some odd channel spacing that I can't figure out. For example, one of them is 462.5625. So, I'm guessing I need to set the frequency step (menu 1) and set it to 6.25 kHz (option 2), or enter 462.500, and press up arrow?
Meanwhile, the last column says TStep, which is set to 5 on all frequencies. Does this mean I have to set the frequency step to 5 (menu 1, option 1?
Secondly, I noticed that all the frequencies have a RTone and CTone of 88.5, but when I programmed the weather channel, I discovered that I needed to set the CTCSS tone (menu 11) to 0 so that I could hear the weather forecast, because if it I set it at 88.5, I'd hear nothing.
Similarly, all the frequencies had a single DTSCode of 23, and all had the DTS Polarity set to NN.
I think I programmed some of the GMR and MURS frequencies because they all ended in zeros, so I didn't have to worry about spacing. I just found it odd how all the them had five as the TStep, plus all of the aforementioned characteristics.
So, how would I go about manually programming these memory channels using the CSV file this person gave me
