Default Need Help trying to pair my Baofeng to BCA

I am tryingto get my Baofeng UV5R to communicate with BCA radio. I used CHIRP to program A-F frequencies and uploaded to my radio, this didn't work so I obviously did something Wrong. I would like to be able to change channels when the BCA users change channels.

Thanks for the help

Use this video to help with programming the radios (the best one i know of)
https://youtu.be/-cUmyElf1MI

Here are the frequencies for BCA radios. Using CHIRP you should be able to program the Baofeng radio to work well with the BCA radios. I really didn't see the need for the privacy codes, so we all just use the straight channels and everyone is happy.

BC LINK-A 462.5625
BC LINK-B 462.6625 CTCSS 94.8
BC LINK-C 462.6375 CTCSS 131.8
BC LINK-D 467.5625 CTCSS 94.8
BC LINK-E 467.5875 CTCSS 97.4
BC LINK-F 462.675

Channel A and F have no privacy code (CTCSS)

The BC Link comes with preset channels from the factory:
A Channel 1 privacy code off
B Channel 5 privacy code 10
C Channel 4 privacy code 20
D Channel 8 privacy code 10
E Channel 9 privacy code 11
F Channel 20 privacy code off

I hope this helps.

Set a through f to the same channel. Prevents the Mic from changing channel when bumped.

Get an ftdi programming cable and use software called chirp. The frs freq are built into it. When you open chirp it gives you a blank screen with a few pull down menus. The frs freq will be in one of the pull downs.

First dl from your radio. Save the file so, you can start over if you vertically fornicate the programming.

Does anyone have a CHIRP file containing configuration known to work with BCA radios you'd be willing to make available?

Like they are saying in the above posts, you need a programming cable and then the file that is built into chirp software. It's radio and computer stuff, so you may or may not get it figured out, worth a try cause you will have good radio's and save some money. wish I could help more. pm me if you want.
