Good day, Bill:

Byterunner sells PCI serial and parallel cards (PCI) that work with MSDOS.  I used these with TRLog for several years.

That allows adding ports IF the computer has PCI slots (these are vanishing rapidly though).  You can install MSDOS on the computer (dual boot) if it is a Windows box.  Let me know if you need more information.

TRLog is a DOS program. You cannot use any USB ports or USB-to-serial or 
USB-to-parallel adapters with it. You will need real serial or parallel 
ports and DOS drivers that work with those ports, and with your 
computer. Not easy to find any more.

Perhaps KQ2M could help you acquire some old, but working, DOS computers 
that have real serial and parallel ports.

It also has 2 serial ports for controlling my two rigs plus a couple of USB ports.  Can I key one of my radios with a serial port or from a USB port to a serial port adapter cable?    Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
