These are all specialized interfaces, two of which are intimately dependent on 
Kenwood firmware in other radios like the TS-480 or TS-2000.    The fact 
remains that the classic "main" serial port that provided more-or-less generic 
acccess to the TNC, for external programs on the previous D700 or TH-D7 is now 
a USB port.
