Interesting.  When I run CHIRP directly on the Mac, the upload time is 
about 4 times faster: 1 min 5 sec.

Must be something going on in CHIRP or Windows 10 or Parallels when I 
run it that way.  I usually do all radio programming in Windows 10, but 
when CHIRP is the only way, maybe directly on the Mac is better?  I 
don't see any slow action for other radio programming, CHIRP or RT 
Systems, when running on Windows 10.
