Hi Bruce 
The two choices your seeing in chirp is NOT the driver for your cable. The driver is, either not installed or not recognized by your version of Mac OS. 
10.6 I believe is snow Leopard. You may need to go to the Prolific web site and download an earlier version of your OS.

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.

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."
