 I found the one to make display at two monitors from one PC.
Probably, if inquiring of the shop that, it will be.

 IMHO, the best way is to indeed use that old 286 or 386 and a separate
monitor. Besides having a constant display always in the same desk
location and not ever hiding potentially important logging information, it is visually appealing and easier to read full-screen. I like
continuously running the greyline program for the usual reasons--it
keeps me aware of the passage of time.

N6TV was working on this problem a few years ago, using OS2. While I
believe he eventually got it playing, he needed a large monitor (17"+)
at maximum resolution to prevent  "shadowing" the log. I don't know how or if he solved the clocking problem that messes up the CW.

Around here, a 286 or 386 has nearly no value. My daughter's preschool begs for computer donations with the caveat  "486 or better processor". Might as well use it for greyline! (or packet...oops!  I mean RTTY).
