    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I'm very new to this and am most definitely the cause of the problem.

I am trying to download Some Radio Reference database frequencies over to CHIRP so I can then download them to my radio memory.

I enter my user name, password and zip when asked in the drop down then click continue.

This dialogue box appears "Suds library required for RadioReference.com import.
Try installing your distribution's python-suds package."

Don't Know what a "Suds package" is, any help.

Bruce.

Well because I didn't get an answer from the innerwebs when I googled and there wasn't too much here as well, I decided to do it the old fashioned way.

I manually put in the frequencies into the radio instead. I think this worked out better for an unforeseen reason and that is it gave me some good hands on work with the radio controls and menus.

So for two reasons I am no longer interested in the answer to the threads original question.

One would be the reason mentioned above and the other is I think I posted this thread in the wrong forum, I now see a forum up above titled "database discussion forum"
Pretty sure that is where this belonged to begin with.

So mods if you see fit you can just let this die in place and don't bother moving it to the correct forum, as I said...no longer interested in the answer.

Thank, Bruce.
