Great document.  Using KPC-3+ telemetry is really neat!
Two comments:
1) the RTS line also shows up in the XXXXXXX bits so you can
    actually have two digital inputs in addition to the 5 analog

2) Since we use KPC-3+ telemetry as the basic Telemetry Command
    and control for all our satellites and our LAB satellites we use
    in education, we have two other standard wirings for getting
    all this I/O into and out of the KPC-3:

KPC-3+ on the DB-25 port:      

KPC-3+ on the  DB-9 gives 4 analog inputs and keeps the DB-25
   free so that its serial port can be easily accessed at same time:

KPC-9612+: http://www.ew.usna.edu/~bruninga/pec/PC2-TNCmods.bmp

And lastly, our 20 channel multiplexer to expand the 5 channels 
into four banks of 5:
