Before I run out and buy the optional CT-62 serial to CAT interface cable I 
would like to ask the forum a few questions. I am planning to operate from my 
mobile set up in a QSO party or two and need to know how a couple of things are 
accomplished. I have an old laptop with a parallel port for sending CW  and a 9 
pin serial port to interface the radio and TRlog. Does the CT-62 indeed come 
with a serial 9 pin plug and not a USB plug? I need the 9 pin plug. How do I 
set it up to key the rig? The 857 instruction manual isn't very clear about 
this. I can plug my paddles into the parallel port to send CW but how do I 
connect to the radio so the logging program does all the work?
