Default Address book back up

Following my recent Note 3 corruption and factory reset meltdown I have become interested in backups.

Specifically, I want to back up my phone's internal address book. (This is a Mac only place and has been since 1983.) [I have just about finished tediously recreating my address book.]

There is clearly a facility to back the address book up to card - but in encoded form, I think. I'm interested in converting the address book to a plain text file too. I guess I can back the address book up in its encoded form and copy the file over using Android File Transfer (or email it to myself) which would give me a safe off-phone back up at least.

But I'm after that plain text file as well.

I'm not personally interested in cloud solutions.
Yes I know you can do it with Android File Transfer. First remove Kies altogether.
