Hi everyone. I am very new to radios and GMRS is a start and am working towards HAM. I am trying to program my Baofeng to link up to the local repeaters, but the number names listed are different than those on the chirp program. Very new looking for help. Thank you

manually change your radio from channel mode to frequency mode. Press "Menu" then use up and down arrow. once you change this you will figure the rest out on your own. keep tinkering...

If you use frequency mode, make sure that you get the PL tone and 5Mhz frequency offset right.
