Inside the 940 you need the IF-10B unit
Outside the 940 Kenwoods level converter is called the IF-232C
(WAY Overpriced but in a nice box)

	There is a unit out by PIEXX that goes in the 940 that
is both units combined BUT I tried two units and
could not get them to work with several versions of CT
and 2 940 radios. I especially had troubke getting the Bandmap
to work. I queried this reflector to ask if anyone ever got a PIEXX
unit to work with a 940 AND CT program and no response.
	I did ask the vendor if he specifically tested his board
with a 940 AND CT and the answer was "NO, but my board does work...."

	If you want ot buy a really nice outboard level converter
get the LCU3-K from W1GEE for under $50. The converter is built into
teh DB-25 that goes to serial port on computer and then a cable exits
that connector and plugs into the accessory jack on your 940...VERY SLICK
(He does sell a pigtail converter cable for $9 or so that adapts you to
a DB-9 for your laptop.

I have no pecuniary interest in any companies mentioned
