Rx Step: Receive Channel Step -
Offset: Repeater Offset -
T/CT/DCS: Uplink Tone Type - T = Uplink tone only. CT = Uplink and Downlink Tone. DCS is digital squelch.

The HMK file can be imported into all of the Kenwood MCP programs that accept the HMK file. The file is not specific to a particular application.
The TPE and CSV files exports the following headers:
Sequence Number: Auto-incremented for each row starting at 1. Can be selected as the memory channel name.
Country: The country the repeater is in. Only used if selected as the memory channel name.
State: The state the repeater is in. Only used if selected as the memory channel name.
Region: The region the repeater in. Only used if selected as the memory channel name.
Location: The nearest city the repeater is in. Only used if selected as the memory channel name.
Output Frequency: Downlink (Receive) Frequency from the repeater.
Input Frequency: Uplink (Transmit) Frequency to the repeater. Not used.
Call Sign: Repeater call sign. Only used if selected as the memory channel name.
Repeater Notes: ARRL standard repeater not abbreviations. Nt used.
CTCSS Tones: Comma-separated list of the radio CTCSS uplink and downlink tones and the DCS code.

Unlike the HMK file, you can select the data field to represent the memory channel name. The options are:
Repeaterbook recommends using the Callsign or the Location fields. The field is limited to 8 characters, so many location entries may be truncated.
The program does not properly import split channel repeaters. It imports all split channels as simplex channels.
