Please forget about .csv files and just work with .img files in ther Chirp editor screen.
Saves all manner of problems.

If I title this column "Loc" in my .CSV file, Chirp returns an Error Message file type not recognized. Changing the column name to "Location" solves the problem. What am I doing wrong with "Loc"?

First on the list in (None) for Simplex operation. Using (None), Chirp returns an invalid entry.  I solved it by entering "off", importing the .CSV file and then changing the Chirp image Duplex entries to "(None). What am I doing wrong with entering (None) in the .CSV file?

What am I doing wrong with entering (None) in the .CSV file?

Please realize that this post is not a complaint and I do want to know if I am doing something wrong. I do understand and realize that Chirp is a big and complicated work aimed at solving the problem for a varied set of hardware and a more than a usually educated set of users. I am amazed at how well it has preformed for me in a very short time.
