OK, this is what works! And works very well!

Apple "MacBook" to Icom Interconnections

Icom 706-MKIIG ACC Plug

Pin 2     Ground                     Ground wire for IMic, RS-232 and Amplifier Key circuit
Pin 3     H Send                     RS-232 pin 4 (DTR) and Amplifier Key circuit HOT
Pin 11   Modulator Input          Audio OUT from MacBook via IMic OUT
Pin 12   AF Detector Output      Audio IN to MacBook via IMic IN

Also connected USB CI-V Interface by Black Cat Systems

In the Fldigi software "Rig Control" panel select DTR and DTR=+V

All working with Fldigi 3.21.50. . .PERFECTLY!

I hope this helps someone get on the air.

Good deal!

I've been using my MacBook Pro with a Signalink USB and both my FT-450D and FT-817ND flawlessly with fldigi. I also have a USB-to-Serial adapter to control the rigs. Proof positive that Macs and Ham Radio go together  Smiley
