Does a Palm Pilot IIIx, Kantronics KPC-3, Garmin GPS45  and a Yaesu 
FT-51r count?
I recall playing with that setup for a (very) short time. Still have 
everything but the GPS45
(I traded it in on a 12CX which I still have). When the TH-D7a hit the 
market I jumped on it
just to simplify the wiring.
