[chirp_users] USB Port defaulted to Bluetooth.

That same procedure is used on a Mac.  After starting Chirp, click on 
Radio then Download from Radio.  Select the correct radio and model and 
also the port, choosing the USB port which is connected to the radio.  
If you are not sure which port is required, first look at the ports 
which are available with the cable to the radio disconnected from the 
computer and then see which port is added when you connect the cable.  
That will be the port you need to select.  You don't need to turn off 
Bluetooth.

Bob, N7XY

When I try to link the radio to my computer, the CHIRP software defaults to my bluetooth port, not the FTDI Cable.  I checked in System Information, USB ports, and my computer is seeing the cable, but CHIRP does not.  How do I get CHIRP to see the correct cable and not my bluetooth port path?
