CSV format is radio agnostic, so the radio name doesn't matter.

I don't have Excel, so I'm not sure what it is doing to your CSV
files. Probably changing the comma format or maybe you removed/changed
the column labels or entered a value that Chirp didn't understand
(e.g. "100.0 Hz" instead of "100.0"). You can try opening the Excel
CSV and Chirp CSV both in Notepad and comparing them to see what

The recommended way to manage your memories is to save a master CSV
file with all your channels in the stock_configs folder. Every time
you want to program a radio, copy/paste or import from this master
CSV. If you need to add a new repeater to the CSV, in Chirp select
File > Open stock config and choose your master CSV. Use Chirp to type
in the new repeater information (or import from a data source like
Repeater Book) then save the CSV.
