Not all CSV files are created equal! CSV is just an encoding scheme.
Unless the column labels are the ones Chirp looks for and the data
matches the format Chirp expects, the fields won't populate.

Chirps CSV reader is pretty flexible. I've given it hints at how to
decode CSV files generated in other software, like RT Systems VX5
software, Kenwood HMK and ITM formats (these are both csv internally,
even though they don't end in .csv).

Send me your CSV file and I'll see if I can trick Chirp into decoding
it for you.
