Chirp with Kenwood TM-D710G on Linux +APRS

My issue is programming it in a format that I will use and the places to visit.
That's the beauty of Chirp, it connects to several common databases, Repeaterbook (for ham), Radio Reference (for others), etc. so it can populate the file for you. The DBs can't tell you which ones are active but at least you can fill the file easily.

Look under Radio->Import from data source->Repeaterbook and it'll give you an option to populate based on proximity (place plus distance) or political boundaries (State and county).

It also has some standards you can plop in such as ARRL recommended calling frequencies, NOAA NWS frequencies, etc.

Thanks for the info @DaveInDenver I purchased the RTSystems software and not using Chirp.. I wonder if there is similar functionality with RTSystems
I only have very old RT Systems (like version 3) applications that IIRC had to be done importing them in CSV or XLS files or the ARRL TravelPlus CD-ROM (that's how old mine are!). By now surely they'd integrate the ability to read them from online databases.
