Provided you are a licensed amateur radio operator, knowing the frequencies and CTCSS/DCS tones are the most important to getting the radio to access the repeaters. Also, you need to know if the repeaters are +/- on the input.
If there is a ham radio group near you, you should ask them for help.

There are GMRS repeaters in some places as well..

A bit more information would help.. (Where you are, what repeaters you want to access, etc)..

GMRS and some ham repeaters are not always open to everyone even if they have a license.

Try these sites. Listen and learn how they do things...but don't be afraid to put out your call sign.

For info . You will need a license to use the machine
If you have your ham lic you are good to go one of the repeaters needs a tone to access it.

A random ham info site
I am not sure about the programming of the radio There are others that can help.
I think you have to put the input and output along with the tone but it has been a couple of years since I have eve seen a chirp screen . You tube might help..
