[CQ-Contest] USB to Serial Port Device

I want to run Writelog on a laptop and control a K3 via the W5XD
Multi-keyer. The problem I'm running into is RF hash.

I got a Byterunner USB to single Serial Port dongle for this purpose that
generates a bzzzzt every time it polls the radio. I have an older Dell
laptop with a built-in serial port that does the same thing.

I've checked the archives and found references to products that work but
nothing about products that are RF noise free.

Any suggestions?
