 =====Export Notes===== =====Export Notes=====
 Many users have noticed there is sometimes a discrepancy between the number of rows shown on the website versus what is actually exported. This is caused by the export working to remove any repeaters that operate in modes that are not supported by the radio, such as DMR. Many users have noticed there is sometimes a discrepancy between the number of rows shown on the website versus what is actually exported.

 +===== Troubleshooting =====
 +  * CHIRP cannot read an open file. CHIRP files exported from RepeaterBook may open on your computer when the download is complete. Take a look at the data and massage it as needed, but be sure to close it before attempting to import it into CHIRP. If not, you will get an error about no memory channels found.
 +
 +===== Tips and Tricks =====
 +==== Selecting Memory Channel Stare Location ====
 +
 +You can import data into CHIRP multiple times without overwriting the previous data. This is done by selecting the memory channel to start the import at. After selecting the file to be imported, select the first memory channel location, and enter in the memory channel to start at.
 +
 +This process allows multiple custom lists to be exported from RepeaterBook that can be pieced together within CHIRP to make a single memory channel file.
 +
 +==== Save the Image ====
 +When you are done importing and massaging the memory channel information, perform a final save of your data by selecting File >> Save As. The default is a *.img file. Whenever you make any major changes to the file, you should save the new file with today's date and start an archive folder. That way, you can always roll back your memory channels as needed. You can also create another custom configuration based on your master configuration for other needs. Just be sure to save them in a manner that is meaningful to you so you know what they are for later.
