Mac OS Sierra Version 10.12.6 13" Mid 2010 MacBook Pro
I am new to Ham radios and am currently unlicensed. Hopefully taking test this month
I recently bought a Baofeng F8HP and data cable from BaoFengtech.com and other accessories
I Tried installing CHIRP on my Mac OS Sierra Version 10.12.6 13" Mid 2010 MacBook Pro
1) Installed CHIRP MAC OS Unified Application as well as KK7DS_Python_Runtime_R10
The application downloaded and unzipped. When I clicked on icon I was asked to confirm to open and clicked ok, my screen "flashed" slightly and then nothing came up on the menu bar and nothing in dock
I tried opening from download folder then moved it to Applications folder and still nothing.
Then I tried deleting and reinstalling 3 or 4 times
2) I deleted that version and tried installing Mac Os LegacyAapplication
When I opened this version the CHIRP Menus showed up in menu bar however non of the menu links worked
3) After many hours of research I Installed Homebrew, and Virtual COM Port Drivers for FTDI devices as well as opening Terminal and executed various commands suggested from the net and nothing seemed to work.
I am not programming literate although I am able to follow instructions. I have tried every combination I could think of to install and run CHIRP
If anyone is able to help me I would greatly appreciate it. I checked out FAQ's and Issues and bugs lists and all similar issues seem to revolve around the legacy version.
