I have no ports no nothing HP notebook.
I just got a 2 COM ports PCMCIA card, but I did not try it yet, maybe this
In meantime I use USB-COM converters with ATEN UC232A chip in it - works
just great with both 1000mp and IC-7000, does CW and FSK. FSK is not direct,
because that chip doesn't support 5-bits, but using the EXT-FSK dll you can
make it working easily.
