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...
