I was thinking of how to do this; just pulled the trigger on a new 
TS480...and decided rather than try and figure out how to interface to 
asterisk, just plunked down the bucks to pick up the 'remote rig' 
interface boxes that are out there.  Nice thing about the remoterig 
setup is that, once you hook it up, it's available either via using a 
computer running HRD-II, the Kenwood remote software, or by plugging the 
480 faceplate into the remote box.  It does have a standard ethernet 
output, plus RS232 ports if the rig supports that way of going.

Couple folks I've talked to have even adapted them to wireless bridges 
to talk to MiFi personal hotspots (though you do have to watch the data 
consumption in this day of 'limited' unlimited data service.

A lot cleaner, albeit with the requirement to carry another small box 

In this world, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.
Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant.
