RadioShack, CompUSA, Fry's, Best Buy...

Sorry. You clearly wrote 895, but my mind saw 898. Ignore this post, read the next one.

Well, yes, if you know what to buy. Unfortunately the 895 doesn't use a standard DB9 connector; the connector to use is actually off a discarded CD Rom drive (I think it's the audio cable).

Anyway, there's full information about how to assemble the cable, or where to buy a complete one on the BC895 FAQ;

[edit] We have a fairly complete Wiki page on the 895, including software links and reviews, here...
