However, you may have other problems such as I do. I can't use the
serial port for keying or my rig control falls apart. I must have the
full CTS RTS protocol or I have problems. Just be sure you realize
that this is a possibility. I am lucky to not have an RF problem but I
am running barefoot. I can get trouble if the cable is in certain
spots in the shack.
