[chirp_users] Cannot Upload to Yausu VX-6

Lets see if we can get you going. I do have CHIRP 0.4.0 working on three Mac computers and communicating with two Yaesu VX-6R HTs.

The first action I suggest is that you update to Mac OS X 10.9.2 Mavericks. Mavericks is a free operating system update from Apple, so don’t hold back on updating.

Once you have Mac OS X 10.9.2 Mavericks installed, 
then the connection Port you want to select in CHIRP is:

You cannot read the full connection Port name in
the above screen shot. It is: /dev/cu.usbserial-A702RBLF

This is the USB / FTDI chip driver from Apple but only available with Mac OS X 10.9.2 Mavericks.

Second, what USB to Serial cable are you using? I am using a pair of Yaesu USB VX-7 FTDI cables, part # RPC-Y7R-U, from Valley Enterprises.

FWIW: you are having a driver problem and not a CHIRP problem.

Stick with me, and I’ll get you going. It just may take a few back-and-forth tries.

The only thing different from what was identified in Issue 1433 is I'm running Mountain Lion 10.8.5 and the new Apple FTDI drive is not utilized.  I'm running the FTDI  2.2.18 driver downloaded from their site.  Is there any update regarding 10.8.5 and the FTDI driver?  I have not been able to locate any issues regarding FTDI and 10.8.5.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
