Hi Mats,

I'm not a MAC user. But I seem to remember reading in the UV-5R group that
a MAC user had the same issue with the ratio going into transmit with the
programming cable plugged into the radio. I believe the fix was to acquire
and install the correct driver.

Like the drivers for the Windows PC, you have to install a particular
driver to work the USB-to-Serial chips that are commonly used in the
cheaper (but not always cheaper) programming cables. Check the CHIRP wiki.
It has a recently updated list of driver sources that you should try.
