<p class="MsoNormal">Hey gang,<u></u><u></u></p>
<p class="MsoNormal">I’ll be the first one to admit it, I’m not a computer guru. I know how to navigate around here and there but, when it comes to technical stuff, I get lost pretty easy. I’m new to this site and I’m new to Chirp in general. I’ve asked a
question or two so far on here and have been graciously answered. Well, I’m still trying to learn. I have a Yeasu VX-170 and a new Baofeng UV-5R 8 watt unit. I’ve managed to load a few frequencies onto the Baofeng and it’s all good. But, a buddy just bought
the same exact radio as mine and, I wanted to program his to the same frequencies, minus a few that wouldn’t apply to him anyways. But, here’s the deal. All of files I’ve saved are csv files. From my brief learning period, csv files CANNOT be uploaded to
a radio, only IMG files can. Here’s the problem. If I want to upload frequencies, they must be from an image file and, I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to convert a csv file to an image file. I’m on about a 6 year old Dell Inspiron running Windows
8.1 on a solid state hard drive. I know, I know, Windows 8.1 is sort of old school but, the reason I have and use it is because, when I had the new SSHD installed, it was at a time when Windows 10 was brand new and many, many folks were not happy with it so,
the company that was doing my computer rebuild asked me if I wanted to remain with Windows 8.1. I said, yep, keep it. So, that’s the story on that.
<p class="MsoNormal"><u></u> <u></u></p>
<p class="MsoNormal">Now, how to convert a csv file to an image file so I can alter it and, then upload it to a radio. And please, please, I’m very low tech so, if you explain how to do it, do it as if you’re talking to a senior citizen which, I am.
