Okay.

First thank you all so very much trying to help me
CHIRP now has "  /dev/cu.usbserial-RTWA39NN  " in the pull down menu.
I picked both the 7800 and the 8900 to test to see if one of them would work.

This is what it said to be on both tries:
Failed to communicate with radio: Failed to read header (0)


……..  :(

-Mark
