LPT1 Band Port Only!

Below is my updated contest configuration for my contest computers.
(Feel free to depress the delete key at this point if you feel ill.)

There was an error in that only LPT1 can be used by CT for band info
for the Top Ten Decoder.  Please note that I have moved my printer 
to LPT3.  Also, I have included the possibility of 2-radio operation
with CT as well as N6TR (single computer).  

Anyone have the pinout for the CT control signal (radio 1/2)?  Ever
built a relay box?  For CW?  For SSB?

Anyone see any other problems, now?

BTW:  Computer configuration precedes installation of the Top Ten
      Decoders, then an automatic antenna switch, and finally the
      installation of the Dunestar filters.  It all fits together
      and soon I will be past the dubious job of configuring my two
      computers.  This thread deals with 2-radio operation and I 
      have received so little information, there is nothing to try
      to summarize.  Please don't flame, I'm just trying to set up 
      my station and others have asked to be provided with the info
      I get.  For now, this is about it.  Bear with me and I'll try
      to move on to the fun stuff, otherwise just delete everything.
      Before I know it, an entire station will be built.
