      Thank you the feedback.  I will look into it.  I plan on using my Yaesu ft-300m as the aprs radio.  

      Much appreciated.

      Since you are listing this on the APRSISCE group, I can assume you are planning on using it with that computer application.
      There is no specific software for the KPC-3+.  A basic terminal program can be used for configuring the aspects from the direct TNC standpoint, and APRSISCE can do its part (depending on how you want it configured).
      Terminal Programs:
          HyperTerminal -> Generic Windows software through at least Windows XP
          TeraTerm Pro -> free version available on the internet
      Either of these - plus many others - will work to make configuration changes.
      As for the the APRSISCE configuration (RF port), you have 2 basic options:
      1.  TNC in KISS mode all the time (configured with terminal program above)
      2.  APRSISCE <open><closed> commands to change TNC settings
      This is covered in the wiki:
      NOTE:  there is an issue with the KPC-3+ and delays that has been discussed here.
                  you may want to do a quick seaarch on that.
      I run an even older KPC-3 and I use method 2 (APRSIS open and close commands).

      I am looking for some help in regards to my old kcp3+. I have had it for many years and I hope it will work for aprs isce during the ADA and MS bike tours this spring.

      However, I am not able to find the software that I though came with it. Is there software for this model? Kantronics web page says that this model is discontinued. So what are my options?

      I do have a USB to serial converter, but I am not sure what drivers to use, if any.
