I have also used 830's on topband and really liked them. Hoewver, the 930
has, IMO, a better receiver than the 830. (Note to K8SE: finally traded all
the 830's for 930's, made a 10 year upgrade in technology ;-) ). With the PC
interface for the 930, it becomes an even better radio. Never much cared for
the receiver in the 940.
With regard to the PC interface for the 940, you can still get them from
PIEXX. I bought one for a 940 that we have at our CCC station at PJ2T. The
interface is well made and works very well.
