Thanks for the replies.  It's not an importing issue since I'm working 
with a file directly input to the radio via the microphone keypad and 
the radio's menus.

Today I started with the radio with only the channels I programmed into 
it by hand, about a dozen repeaters into Bank A, and five Simplex 
channels into Bank B.  I then downloaded them into the factory software 
and they looked fine (the factory software gives you two separate 
windows, one for each Bank).  I then downloaded the radio to CHIRP and 
everything was all scrambled.
