[chirp_users] Mac to Vaesu communication problem

I also use a Mac and have a Yeasu 7900R & FT60R both communicate well, but I did have to install the RT driver which then shows an additional com port. I did find in my case, I think because of the lighting ports and using a lightening to USB connector cable I have to use 2 different physical ports for the 2 different radios.
On the RTsystems inc website click on support then on the right select Yeasu Prolific driver

Good luck,

Under the choice for Port, I get two options: "/dev/cu.Bluetooth-PDA-Sync" and "/dev/cu.Bluetooth-Modem". When I try with "/dev/cu.Bluetooth-Modem", it immediately tells me it cannot open the port. When I try with " /dev/cu.Bluetooth-PDA-Sync", it tries to do something and then errors out, saying: "Failed to communicate with the radio."
