I don't know, but try some debugging:

on openCard
  open file "KeyUSA28X91.1:"
  answer "Opened the port. Result:" & return & the result
end openCard

on idle
  set the serialControlString to "KeyUSA28X91.1"
  -- guess the above line is incorrect, it has to be something like
  set the serialcontrolstring to "BAUD=9400"
  -- and that it should be set when you open the port
  read from file "KeyUSA28X91.1:" for 1 line
  put it after field "Incoming"
end idle

Hope this helps.
