[aprssig] USB to RS232 adapters? (again)

I have had very good luck with Inside Out networks (www.ionetworks.com)
Edgeport adaptors.  They are usually available as surplus on EBay for a
reasonable price.
I have never encountered a case where one would not work.  I have used them
for radio control ( Kenwood, Yaesu and Icom), rotor control, and Garmin GPS.
Another solution that works well if there is a Ethernet network, is the
Systech serial port hubs. They are also quite often on EBay.  They function
with their own IP address on a network and can be used by any computer on
the network with the drivers loaded.  The computer sees them as a com ports.
I have never encountered an application where they have failed to operate.
hope this helps,
