The only options I'm aware of are the Rotor Interface Option and the Tuner

You have the Tuner option if your board has two 2651 UARTs and 1488/1489

By the way, the KCT manuals and original software are available at
http://www.amsat.org/amsat/catalog/kct/index.html -- the drawings
included show some rotor interface details.
