what i did was
1) download from radio
2) saved .img file as "default.img" so i could reset my radio if i bugered
something up
3) opened "default.img"
4) opened the .csv file i wanted
5) clicking on the top channel number, the pressing shift+left clicking the
last channel in the bunch
6)right clicked over highlighted channels, selected "copy"
7) selected my "default.img" tab
8) left clicked to highlight the channel i wanted to start my bunch at
8) right clicked and selected "paste" which then took a few sec, but pasted
all of it over
9) rinsed and repeated from my .csv files
10) saved my edited default.img file by going to "file" then "save as",
stored it as " funkychicken1.img"(name is at your discretion)
11) uploaded funkychicken to my radio,
12) powered my radio off and unplugged my data cable
13) powered my radio on and talked on my local repeaters
14) powered off, reconnected data cable then powered back on
15) downloaded img from my radio to ensure data integrity

all this said, im running chirp on a win7, 64bit machine, running chirp in
compatibility mode for windows xp servicepack 3, using the ftdi cable from
baofeng on my bf uv-5r with baofeng's software and drivers from their site
as well as chirp from chirp's site but the newest build you get from the
farrrrr right hand link on the chirp download page
