      I've been running a PCR-100 under Vista with no issues but I'm using a
      standard serial port ... I do run a RX-320 under Vista using a USB to
      Serial adapter, I'd recommend a Keyspan, they seem to be the most
      trouble free ... Get a good USB adapter and I doubt you'll have any

      Fact of the matter is I've had less of a problem with Serial and
      Parallel port devices under Vista than I did with XP .... as far as
      programs go, unless they say they are for Vista I run them in WinXP
      SP2 compatibility mode ... The only radio program I've had an issue with
      under Vista is WXtoImg which crashes even using the Vista Beta so I
      switched to a relatively new Open Source project called APTDecoder
