Hi Greg,

actually, when we developed RASCAL, we had PSK-1 (or another KISS TNC that
could do PSK) support in mind. However, PSK TNC's such as the PSK-1 have
become a scarce item:) Furthermore, COM port access in JAVA can be tricky
sometimes, especially when you want to preserve the cross platform
In the meantime, I had started work on a 1200bd BPSK soundcard demod in JAVA
(contrary to the PSK-1, PC's with soundcards are abundant in today's ham
shacks hi). The Warbler software was my first try at this. In the end we
decided to integrate this demod with RASCAL and abandon the KISS TNC support
in favour of the soundcard solution. So, unfortunately, KISS TNC support is
not included in RASCAL.
