UV-5R is correc for the BF-F8+

I don't see any attached "error message". My guess is that you must by
messing up the CSV format when you are appending the UV-82 data to it.

You are making this way harder than it needs to be. There are no CSV
files required.

Method 1
1 Download from your UV-82 to CHIRP (this creates a tab for the UV-82)
2 Download from your BF-F8+ to CHIRP (this creads a 2nd tab for your BF-F8+)
3 Now copy and paste the channels from the UV-82 tab to the BF-F8+ tab

Method 2
1 Download from your BF-F8+ to CHIRP
2a Click File->Import
2b Now change the button that says "CHIRP Files (*.chirp)" to "CHIRP
Radio Images (*.img)"
2c Find and import the "image" file for your UV-82
2d Choose which channels that you want to import from the UV-82 and
where you want them imported to
2d Click the [OK] button
