You cannot directly upload a CSV file into any radio. That is why
"Upload To Radio" is greyed out. You must either open two tabs, one
from the radio and one from the CSV file so you can copy-and-paste
between the tabs or you must download from the radio and import the
CSV file into the tab from the radio.
