You cannot do that.

Plug in the radio, download from the radio.  Save the image file in case
something breaks.

Same thing with a different radio, give the file a different name, like
John Smith's BF3TP. Save that file. Never assume same model radios are 100%
comparable.  NEVER!

Export the frequency list you want to copy as a spreadsheet csv file.  Say
it's the BF3TP, export as CSV.

Use LibreOffice to open it up in LibreOffice Calc.  Microsoft Office will
NOT work.

Read up on how to transfer frequencies from one model to another, it's done
via the csv spreadsheets. Consider ALL img files to be incompatable. I
don't have the instructions in front of me, but I needed to tell you you
cannot directly do what you are saying, you have to use CSV files and
LibreOffice Calc.
