Not always, and not always reliably. Also, there are timing issues associated
with USB to
serial that can cause certain software not to work with them at all. A Belkin
from KK9H to try crashed my W2K machine, even WITH the latest drivers.
The PCMCIA cards are much more expensive, but they seem to be far more
reliable. I use
one made by Quatech (in Ohio, they've been around for quite a while, buy from
website) to control and key my radios. No known issues.
