As I reported, yesterday I have a FT-736R on its way to me and been 
reading the manual and looking into computer control.

I already have several USB/RS-232 conversion cables so I am disposed 
to build the ckt shown in 
on a breadboard for a test.

I have SatPC2 installed.

I also have a Unitrac-2000 which uses a parallel port I/F and a 
computer I was going to recycle that has a 25-pin parallel port.  It 
is set up to I/F the B5400 rotator.  I will have to research it to 
see if it will interface the radio CAT interface.

Looking forward to getting back on the sats.
