There's no benefit to .chirp over .csv. Just use .csv.

.img files are a direct data dump from the radio. They can only store
fields supported by the radio. If your radio doesn't have a built in
comment field (I'm not aware of any that do), then there's no way to
store a comment in the .img file.

Dan has proposed a new file format that would store the img data plus
some additional metadata. This is a long way from fruition.
