         Well, you have to look pretty hard these days for that, but 
occasionally you find one.  It goes right back to what Jason posted 
earlier about 20th century radio -- we need to upgrade our stuff -- 
and a good start would be to move away from serial ports to USB or 
FireWire or something else more current.

         Here's one -- but I bet it's expensive!
