[chirp_users] CHIRP 0.1.8b3

You wouldn't need the ability to add and delete columns if you can renumber
the channels. I guess I am not clear on how this is accomplished other than
doing it one row at a time, (and that is a pain). <Maybe I missed something

Find and replace would be very helpful when you take the download from a
2820 (8 place names) and put it into an 800 (6 place names) . 

My 2 cents...

Do you mean rows?  If you insert a column then you'll break the CSV format
and it won't import.

I added add/delete rows with automatic renumbering to CHIRP a while ago. 
  I still need to add an option to insert more than one at a time...

Hmm, okay.  It's definitely something I can add, although I'm not sure I'd
use it personally :)

That's certainly doable too.
