Hi Tom,

If you have an interface cable between your computer and the TS2000 you 
are halfway there.

 For Orbitron to control the TS2000 you need an intermediate piece of 
software called WispDDE. you can get it here....


In WispDDE you set up a radio profile for the TS2000, Orbitron talks 
DDE, WispDDE listens and adjust the vfo's in your radio.

I currently use exactly this to control my IC910 and my TS850. I've also 
used it to control Kenwood TS711 and TS811 before I got the IC910. I 
also have ARS (  http://www.ea4tx.com/products/index.htm )listening to 
the DDE output of Orbitron to control my rotators thus leaving my hand 
free to write log entries etc...
