Thank you @WyoJoebut it seems that your copy/paste tip is limited to copying from and pasting back into the Radioddity/Anytone software itself.

I downloaded CHIRP into my Windows environment and my attempts to copy from a previous CHIRP file and then paste into the Radioddity software have not been successful.

I also exported from CHIRP into a "csv" file, modified this text file to match the columns in the Radioddity CPS software and then attempted to copy/paste without any luck either.

Radioddity CPS continues to only recognize the last "copy" from within its own program, even after I have successfully done a copy in CHIRP or the csv file.

Yes, I have done that twice now:

1) The first time I acquired my AT-779UV and built a codeplug; and

2) After some growth in various repeaters I now have access to, and additions to the various categories, I rebuilt my codeplug but this time left blank lines between categories.

Since I have one also in my car, now I tend to manually insert a new channel into each machine (including an alphanumeric name) and also add it to the codeplug, to save the hassle of unscrewing it from the cup-holder mount in my car and bringing it upstairs to program.

I built a somewhat shorter version for the PAPA System group's members to be able to download and I know of at least two members who have use it and grown from my start.

I am still hoping that someone like @WyoJoewill find a better solution for us! He is the one who told me that I could use the updated Radioddity firmware and programming software for its GM-30 in my clone, the Pofung P15UV, which I originally purchased to be able to scan for tones.  I subsequently gave it to my 10 year old grandson, in place of his FRS Motos. 

I now use instead the TYT-UV88 which is another GM-30 clone, but it is a ham radio that can also be opened to GMRS, MURS, etc and even can use CHIRP to copy/paste program and then refine the programming with its own programming software.

Thank you for these charts, but I am not sure what you are hoping to add to our discussion:

The AT-778 and the AT-779 are two completely different radios.

Are you suggesting that the software for the 778 has import/export features and can be used with the 779?

Thank you for that attempt, but version 2.01 of the Anytone AT-779UV software will not open your file:

While some file extensions are compatible with each other (such as csv), dat files are generic data files that can follow different internal rules.
