I recently picked up an Icom 746 to use as a 2nd radio.  Since my my 1st radio 
is a Kenwood I have not yet encountered the challanges of the CI-V interface.  
It is my goal to avoid purchasing the Icom CI-V for $100 or so and use one of 
the self powered converters.  From my limited investigation it appears the self 
powered converters get their power from either the RTS or DTR lines.  The TR 
manual implies that RTS is not turned on so it can be used to send CW via the 
serial port.  

I do not need to use the serial port for CW transmission so my question, after 
this long winded explanation is...  has anyone used a 3rd party CI-V to serial 
port converter with TR successfullly and are their any recommendations?

Thanks in advance for your help.
