Rob,
I don't have a Mac here. Just Windows 7 and Linux Mint.

There are a couple of thing that you can do.

1. Download and burn CHIRP Live CD to a USB flash drive and use it
temporarily to program your radio.

2. Email you CHIRP .img file to me, I will enable the Menu Available
setting and email it back.
