[chirp_users] Baofeng UV-82HP and iMac

I was not even aware that connecting via bluetooth was an option.  The cable is in a standard USB port.  I’m not sure how to find or install a device driver (is that for the cable?).

I used to be able to have some fun with chirp but I've not been able to interact with my radios (baofeng UV-5RE Plus and UV-82HP) since getting a new computer.  On an older computer and with an older cable I could access my UV-5RE fine but now I can’t get it to recognize anything.
