Thank you for your prompt response.  I appreciate it.
Issue 1:  It seems that you folks update CHIRP quite frequently.  Since Apple does not recognize you as a vendor it is somewhat awkward to find the work-around in order to install CHIRP on my MacBook Pro.  How do I do this and what is Python Run time option,

Issue 2:  When attempting to save the CHIRP grid, I run into all sorts of problems in that it does not recognize the file directory structure on the MacBook, and doesn’t allow me to save change to my desktop or other directory.

Issue 3:  I maintain my ‘channeled repeaters’ from the Repeater Book (export).  CHIRP does not allow me to import changes from my Repeater Book desktop.

Issue 4:  I have the 2M and 70cm calling frequencies programmed into my BF-F8HP channels 1-4 respectively.  The import Function of CHIRP overwrites this data causing me to re-enter them again manually.  Is there any way around this?

Thanks for listening and I hope I can get some positive feedback to resolve these issues.
