Default Can I use a Mac to upload my feed?

I broadcast the St. Louis City -- Fire, EMS and Police feed and I need a new computer. I want to switch from PC to a Mac, but I don't know if I can still upload using Radio Feed software. So the question is, can I still upload with a Mac? If I need to use something different to make it work, please let me know. I'd hate to buy a new Mac if I can't upload my scanner feed.

I'd also love to hear that someone has made Mac compatible software so I can control and edit my GRE-500, but I'm not holding my breath on that one.

Sorry if it's a repost, but for some reason, I never have luck using the search feature. I tried! :-)

Right, I've considered that. A couple things; To run Parallels, you need a full copy of Windows to install it. That would cost me ~$400 and I'm trying to rid myself from Windows and all of the annoying maintenance that comes with it.

Thanks for your reply!! :-)
