 From talking to people who have tried it, the TS-570 will interface with 
NA using the standard settings.  Make sure your COM settings in NA are 
correct, particularly IRQs.  Remember, NA cannot share IRQs between 
multiple COM ports.

However, unless you're an SSB-only operator, you might not want to 
interface the TS-570.  According to a multitude of reports, every time the 
computer polls the radio for data the CW gets garbled.  I know at least one 
user who declined to buy a 570 just for this reason.
