Dave, depends on what and how much you want to do with the TS-2000 (happy owner here!).  There is TRX-Manager wich can control the rig from the computer, save and edit  and program memoiries, along with some other features, log, terminal, (web) DX Cluster,  rotor control, satellite doppler control when you use satellites on 145 and 432 and more, see: http://www.trx-manager.com/  There is MixW 2.x which is multi mode soundcard software, most of the soundcard modes like PSK, MFSK RTTY, etc and CAT control (this takes an extra serial port or a USB to serial converter if you only have one serial port on the computer.  MixW site: http://www.mixw.net/  Also Logger, Hamscope and a few others offer some CAT control and soundcard modes, but use MixW here and it works well for me.

Dave, also Kenwood has software for the rig, one is free on the Kenwood site (ARCP?), mostly a memory manager and menu manager.  There is also a program that Kenwood sells that can control the rig, but I understand that you buy it and there is not much support from Kenwood.  For almost the same amount of money TRX-Manager is a better purchase and there is a egroup supported by the author of TRX-Manager on Yahoo egroups, and he is involved with suggestions and improvements of the software.

I am currently working on a DOS based control program for the TS2000.  The first phase is a "exerciser" program which I am using to debug my code modules for accessing each avilable CAT command.  

When these modules are done, I will combine them under a DOS, Text based user interface to create the finished control program.  Ths finished program will provide all the capabilities of the Kenwood control program along with memory control capabilities.  

The user interface will work with both a keyboard only and a mouse/keyboard.  The interface is being designed for CGA capabilites to make it viable for low end DOS PCs and laptops.  I will also test it using MS WIN98 SE running as an MSDOS machine from bootup (not a DOS window).

I will make this available as freeware. Further announcements of availibility will be forthcoming.

Program development is being done in Turbo Pascal 7.0, Async Professional library for serial communications, and TurboJock for Objects for the user interface.

Commander is free, and will control your TS-2000 from your PC. Commander is part of the DXLab Suite, an array of free applications that can be run individually but when run simultaneously automaticly sense each other's presence and interoperate accordingly. You'll find support for multichannel PSK31/PSK63, RTTY, Logging, QSL generation, eQSL/LotW synchronization, DX Spot collection and an analysis, propagation prediction and monitoring, and QSL route discovery.

All DXLab applications are available via www.qsl.net/dxlab .
