Hi Paul,

I think you'll need a USB expansion strip. This will give 4 USB ports.
Depending on the radio, you will need a USB route to the radio, i.e.
USB to RS-232. Then what ever RS-232 to your radio. Then I would
recommend a Winkeyer USB keyer by K1EL. This simple setup will
let you control the rig with one USB port and the keyer and keying
through a second USB port.

There may be others on here that can advise on specific adapters
that are less RFI prone or cause no RFI to your radio. These are
things to watch for.

This what I use here. Boy, it's been awhile since I did the Contest
Traveler for The NCJ.

What rig are you taking, antenna, etc.
