MAC OSX TIPS:
MacOS users must install the KK7DS Python runtime before the application will execute. This only needs to be installed once.
OS X support is limited to Intel architecture. PowerPC is not supported.
Chirp.app is unsigned. With default security settings, you will need a special procedure to run it: Application Security in 10.9.
