I set up the radio to clone without issue. When I set up Chirp to download from the radio, the port selection is only one:  /dev/cu.bluetooth-incoming-port. When I press the PTT button on the radio, I get  RX, then an error on Chirp.  When I remove the USB from the MacBook Pro, there are no red/green lamp flash at all.

Not the correct port. It should be something like: /dev/cu.usbserial-A501XQ5I

If you don't see that, then you don't have a compatible device driver
installed/loaded yet.

See the Troubleshooting section of the MacOS_Tips page.
