    I’ve attached an image of the dual serial port mod completed with a $3 Radio Shack PCB. I’ll compile a complete parts list if anyone is interested.

    Please note: The image of the PCB is mirrored to show the copper traces from a top down view. The copper traces should be on the bottom of the completed circuit.
