Well,
   What I was really trying to figure out was if I am going to need to go 
spend MORE money on an interface box to allow a Peg to communicate over my 
PC's USB port. If NOT, I can always spend that money on a new keyer or some 
other ' necessity'.. It is not a 'bad' thing to use one of those boxes, but 
they do eat into the budget...
