Any radios that require the python-future package are not supported by
CHIRP on macOS because the CHIRP macOS Unified Application does not
contain this package. It is my understanding that the MacOS Unified
Application will most likely never contain this package. So currently
your only workaround is to use Windows or linux to have support for
those radios.
