[chirp_users] How to save/upload after sorting the CHIRP rows?

That is rather clever!   Thanks.

For my Baofeng radio, as noted in another response, it is necessary to open
a writeable, downloaded .img file in the 2nd tab.  Otherwise, the only
save[as] option is to a .csv file.

The only advantage then of my sort script is that one can specify multiple
sort keys, e.g.  "-k 2,2  -k 3n,3" to sort primarily by name (column 2) and
secondarily by frequency (column 3).

The "Safe in Church" deception: believing that calling some building a
"sanctuary" will magically deter criminal violence is a dangerous delusion!

The "Gun-Free Zone" deception: believing that a "No Guns" policy or sign
will deter criminal violence is "magical thinking" in its most dangerous

In your time of need, may your piece be with you!
