Re: IC-821 and SatPC32

I use a home-built version of the CT-17 interface with my 910H...  PC board 
from FAR circuits, very quick and easy to build.  It does, however, require 
a 12 volt supply, which I assume you have for your 820.

Alternatively, if your laptop has USB ports, you can steal 5 volts from 
there for the powered interface shown in the docs.
