[chirp_users] Serial Cable not Found on Max

Hello all,

Having programed about 150 of these radios (for my club, and most on a Mac), and using a multitude of different cables, I have never found a bad cable.

What I have found is you need to get the right driver.

On a Mac, this is done by plugging cable in, going to the “About this Mac”, getting a “System report”, and looking for your cable in the “USB” section of the “Hardware” section.

Download the driver.

Unless the Mac is really old, this should work.
