Just so you understand exactly what's happening here.
The very moment you mention the word "Baofeng" it sends
out a neon light for all of the "nasty" ham operators. A lot
of them love the opportunity to bash a Baofeng user. My
personal advice is to make your post about a Kenwood, Icom,
or any other preferred "ham" radio and you will get a much
friendlier response.

In Chirp Click the help tab and about and there is a email there to get help
if you are looking for Ham Radio frequencies , Repeater Book is a much better database and free with registration

Rcolley, I'm sorry you dissatisfied with you subscription. RR does have frequencies for many Canadian cities. What Province and city of Canada are you in and what type of sevices do you want to to listen to (police, fire, ham, business, etc)?

Edit: Ah, I see the problem is with CHIRP importing Canadian entries.

The problem you and the OP are having is with CHIRP, not RadioReference.That's why RR is unable to assist you, not because you're Canadian.

Correct, the problem is with chirp. When importing from here, it asks for the user name and password. Then it asks for a zip code. When you enter a postal code it will not let you import from this site. I have spoken to someone with chirp (there software is free so pretty hard to be frustrated with then) My frustration is I did not read the forums first to see that this has been a problem for a few years. I have access to all kinds of frequencies for Canada including from here for free, thatís not a problem. I paid to become a member here for the extras that I cannot enjoy. Is what it is.

I also seen a comment about get a real radio.Really?, you must assume that guys who use a Baofeng radio donít have other radios. I buy these cheap radios so when they get beat up or break, I donít have to worry about it like I do with my other more expensive radios.

For what it's worth, Proscan easily imports from RR in Canada.
Once you log in, there's dropdowns for Country, State/Province, County (yes we have them)

I suspect it might be a bit of work to fix Chirp, but just sayin' it can be done.
I don't find it a big issue, as there's not much to adding freqs in Chirp, it's not like you can do big trunked systems....

Chirp is used on "real" radios too.

I've never used a HP scanner, but surely they take Canadian postal codes, (it appears that Sentinel does) so perhaps it might not be that much work to fix Chirp.
