Using WSPR with Yaesu FTDX1200 and SignaLink USB

I am successfully using WSPR on my Yaesu FTDX1200 running 5w with a SignaLink USB connected between my laptop running WSPR software and the rig's rear panel DATA port. However, this only works when the rig is set to USB mode and not USB DATA mode. This seems strange. To compound the mystery, the menu setting for SSB MIC SEL(ect) is set to FRONT instead of DATA (rear panel). Note that when using this rig and SignaLink for PSK31, the mode must be USB DATA. So I don't understand how WSPR is working with my rig set to USB mode. Can anyone please shed some light on this? Sorry if this isn't the right forum to be asking this type of question. If you have a suggestion for where else to pose this, please advise.

Thanks. 73, Jim K6SFC
