[chirp_users] Fix a CSV File

I thought that I would confirm that 6 meter frequencies uploaded to a Wouxun
KG7D using the only option for that radio in Chirp, the KG6 selection,
worked fine, and it is transmitting now on 6 Meters.
I wish my local club had a 6 meter repeater, I have a feeling 6 meters would
out perform 2 meters for local communications.
One of these days I'll put up my own repeater.
Thanks David and Jim for poking through my CSV files for me.
I think it is probably much easier to visually inspect a spreadsheet than it
is to go through all cells one at a time.
Bad capitalization may be a problem to detect with a screenreader, but I use
a technique to find how to locate missing fields via keyboard, we can
control down arrow or control right arrow, and it will take the cursor to
the end of a line of data, so if there is a blank field, it will stop there.
I don't know if this works inside Chirp, or if this is something only for
spreadsheet programs outside of Chirp.

As before, required values in the rToneFreq fields were missing.
Also frequencies in memory rows 68 and above are out of range for a
KG-UV6D (and also other fields were missing required data) so those
memory rows were removed.
After making those edits, the attached CSV file imports into the test
Wouxun KG-UV6 image in the CHIRP repository without any errors.
