Actually, I was expecting to see an option for the TS-940 in NA-CONFIG, 
but I don't see it.  I mistook the Ant Port selection to mean the 
interface port, so that is the source of confusion over LPT ports.  I 
returned to config and set COM2 to xcvr1, so the port issue is OK once I 
get the modem off that port and attach a cable to the motherboard 
header.  Running config.exe and selecting F5, in the top section for radios:

menu           choices
Radio A/B      none
XCVR#1         lots of FT's and IC's, Kenwood1, Kenwood2, and PIEXX930
Ant Port #1    none
XCVR#2         none
Ant Port #2    none
CW port        COM1
Keyer port     COM1
all else       none

Should I select Kenwood 1 or 2?  What baud rate should I use for the 
serial port (COM2)?
