and you will probably find conflicts with modern versions of Windows. For
about the $150 for an ISA-to-USB card, you can get a modern, supported

Subject: [amsat-bb] Kansas City Tracker with a modern computer?
I picked up an old Kansas City Tracker, circa 1990, and was wondering if
there is any way to use it with a modern computer. It is designed to plug
into the ISA slot of a PC. I don't know much about computers, but my
understanding is not modern computers no longer have ISA slots. Could it be
adapted to plug into a USB port or something that a modern computer has?
