[chirp_users] Location field

This feature is useful if you have one radio that you only program from
PC-to-Radio, and if you are using CHIRP to keep track of Frequencies.

The minute you read the channels off a radio (Radio-to-PC) in the other
direction, the location field and the notes field would be empty. And it
would likely be a chore to transplant your location data and notes from
another CHIRP programming list.

I believe the columns present in CHIRP are an aggregation of programmable
fields found across multiple radios that are CHIRP compatible.

In the database fields it would be super helpful if there was a field for
