I'm a newbie...
Just bought a BaoFeng BF-F8HP Two Way Radio and working on my Tech License.
Reading some reviews before I bought it mentioned that the CHIRP/App and
Programming cable wasn't working yet.
So I held off on buying the Programming cable.

Then after researching a bit more I found this:

Application Security in 10.12+

As of 10.12 (Sierra) the UI for disabling app security was removed. The
functionality is still there, but must be enabled from the command line.
To whitelist a single application (like an unzipped chirp-daily.app):

   1. unzip chirp.zip
   2. control click on the unzipped application and select New Terminal at
   Folder. (Don't see that menu item? Instructions to enable it
   3. run this command in the newly opened terminal window:

   spctl --add $PWD

Alternately, you can disable them for your entire system, although this has
security implications that should not be ignored. Run this command in a

sudo spctl --master-enable

If I do the above will it work?

If so... then I'll buy the Programming cable.

Again... I'm new at this.

Any tips on running the CHIRP App/CD and Programming cable with my above
listed Mac OS?
