    You have a CAT control problem. Hard to help without knowing your setup and your settings.

    Looks to me like you don't have the Serial Port configured correctly, or you have the wrong one installed. "USB" is not a valid Serial Port device ID on Mac. It should be something like /dev/cu.SLAB.USBtoUART....

    Not sure which version of macOS you're running, so some steps may or may not be necessary, but I presume that you didn't follow the instructions about installing the driver before connecting the rig. If that's the case, don't worry. I can't tell you how many people do the exact same thing.

    Disconnect the rig from the Macbook (remove the USB cable from the Mac completely, don't just turn off the rig).
    Reboot
    Download and Install the SILabs Driver (not needed with Big Sur) from https://www.silabs.com/documents/public/software/Mac_OSX_VCP_Driver.zip
    Reboot again
    Plug in the USB cable and power on the rig.
    Go to the Security Settings in System Preferences and make sure that the driver is authorized to run.
    Reboot one more time for good measure and to make sure that the driver starts up normally after reboots.
    Start WSJT-X and it should show up.
