I use a rigblaster NoMic, and got a cable from them to plug into the key jack in the rig. Very handy for contesting software.  Also, K1EL just came out with a kit called WinKey, which will connect from the serial port of the computer to the rig.  His site is www.k1el.com  I'm thinking of building it; I've built his K-20 keyboard keyer, and it's good quality.  Hope this helps.

Does anyone know if there is a computer interface that plugs into the USB-2 port on my computer?

If you can't find one that plugs into a USB port, get one that plugs into a standard serial port plus a USB to serial converter.

If all you want to do is CW keying I suggest you can build your own for less than $10 instead of spending $80 upwards. It is a very simple single IC, a few feet of twin cable, 232 plug for computer end, and keying plug at the radio end. If anyone wants a schematic please send me an email to n5ka@juno.com
