Wow!  Tony, I had already purchased the Yaesu cable, but these other sites
were positively GREAT!  I think I will order the cable that allows me to
do CW from the keyboard - not for any other reason than I can get some
great software that allows me to key ahead while I'm translating a CW QSO.

Other great ideas in these links, too!  Thanks again...
