At present I am using the West Mountain plug and play with my Dell for digi modes. I now have a MacBook Pro and would like to do digital with it but the only way is to use my radio mic and the internal mike of the Mac. Signalink says it will work but I'm doubtful. Does anybody know for sure? Thanks

Well if you have a Rig Blaster plug and play, they have drivers for Mac. The only problem is that they do not officially support Mac because they do not actually write/make driver for it (pnp chip maker does) like they do for PC market. This is because of very limited Mac market and focusing resources on much larger PC market like many others do too.

I am currently using a SignaLink USB with my iMac and at one time ran it on my MacBook Pro. No problems at all. 
I also have rig control on the same computer for my IC-703 which works nicely with fldigi and WSPR.
So, yes, it does work on the Mac. (and also on my Win7 and Linux boxes).

MacBook Pro Retina, Signalink USB, fldigi, and flrig all work well together.
