    I got everything working.   Still had to specifically import a few 
channels but at least that worked this time.    Is there any 
documentation ( wiki or otherwise) on how to use Chirp and about the 
different format to save in ( csv, vs chrisp vs img)  ?
How difficult would it be to allow something like an import of a csv to 
a generic radio then set the type up and do a write to the Radio.   
Currently I do not seem to be able to setup the type of radio except for 
a read from the radio.  Once I have read from a radio then I can import 
the CSv and write back to the radio.   In most of the cases I work with 
I am prepared to trash whatever is currently there and overwrite it with 
new info.   Still need the read function for verifying the programming I 
just wrote.
