So I don't know if anyone else is having this issue, but I finally got Chirp to load in macOS Sierra. Hooked up the radio and was ready to download the radio info, went through indicated steps and got an error that the radio did not respond. I suspect this is a USB cable issue as I am attempting to use the one that came with the radio. If anyone has any tips or tricks to get this thing to recognize the radio is attached I'd appreciate it!

This looks like a cable issue, indeed. Please refer to these Wiki articles:
CableGuide FTDI OEM Cables
RTSystemsCablesAndMavericks (if you're running MacOS)
If there's no solution to be found in any of them, please read: How To Report Issues and provide a debug log. Thank you!
