Notes:

 * the IF-232C includes a cable that connects it to the transceiver
If your PC has no free RS232 serial ports, you can use an USB-to-serial-port adaptor (e.g. from Belkin or !ByteRunner), or you can choose an alternative interface that uses a USB interface rather than a serial port interface.
The IF232C, IF-10A, IF-10B, and IF10-C are no longer available from Kenwood, but replacement units are available from the suppliers below, and used units can be found.
