There is no current way to do that.  CHIRP can only read (some) ICF
files at the moment.  You can convert an 800 ICF file to a 2820 chirp
image and then program your radio with it, but that's as far as you can
get.  However, you should be able to use the CS-2820 software to pull
out the ICF file and then you can re-flash your 2820 with your previous

There has been some recent discussion about working on the ability to
write ICF files as well, so perhaps you'll see that feature show up
before too long.
