[aprssig] Best USB<-->Serial Dongle Ever ???

I always found the Edgeport series to be much more compact, with these 
you are stuck with long cables plus whatever to connect to the 
application..  With the edgeport having de-9/25/ or rj45 depending on 
the model it lets you tailor the cable length to the application, and 
provides full rs/232 support that has worked with everything I have ever 
tried them with...  I picked up a couple 4 port ones on ebay for around 
$20 ea (they retail around 300$), and looks like they are still in that 
ballpark now.
