I have been searching high and low for about 2 years now looking for an IF10C(?) computer interface for my Kenwood TS680S.  I cannot find anything other than references prooving it's existence.  Does anybody know of a source where I could purchase such a beast?  Is there a way I could build my own interace for this rig?  Any help/info would be GREATLY appreciated.

Have a look at www.piexx.com

Another way is to prepare your custom IF-10. You can find schematic at http://hamradio.online.ru/if10.htm.
Description is mostly in russian, but it's not so useful. I confirm it as russian native speaker ;-)

Steve,
    The "Russian" schematic mentioned is similar to, but not identical to, the Kenwood IC-10C.  I'm not sure it's specifically designed for the TS-680S, as the additional voltage regulator in the circuit will result in the circuit operating below standard TTL voltage supply levels. This  could be a problem.  
    If you want more information, contact me at my e-mail address.  (wa9svd.nospam@juno.com; just leave out the ".nospam")

Well, after much searching, I found a company that makes a replacement for the IF-10C.  The site I found it on is http://www.hosenose.com/detail.asp?product_id=IF-10R

Not sure how eht Mfg is.  Cost is $95.  So, is it worth $95 or do I put the money to a new radio.  I think to a new radio.
