Update time

To the image file from the radio into Chirp

Exported a CSV file.

Opened that with Excel

Opened the RT file as a CSV in Excel

Took columns from the RT CSV file and place them into the F8HP file image only inserting into the compatible columns.

Saved as a CSV DOS compatible file. 

Opened Chrip

Clicked Import and changed the format to CSV

Error : No Channels Found. 

Any clues on what went wrong?
