Thanks for the good info Alan. On what you told me I'm going to persue this
farther with my IC-9100. I have MixW running, (I downloaded a copy of the
new version, installed it and good old MixW still has me registered online
from 7 years ago! I just called Martha for a code for WiSP, the two codes
she gave me, one for win 3.1 the other for win95 ?? didn't work. How did you
get your copy of WiSP running?

Flex never delivered on the promised 9600 baud capability for the VU5K.
KE9NS has gotten the RX side working very well, but there is little
documentation, and so far not on the TX side.  Work still in progress, but
as I am the only one who seems to want it, very understandably not a high
priority.  :)

Yes, the DSP-2232, which I still have, works very well at 9600 baud.  I used
to use it with the FT-847 on the KitSATs and AO-51 when it was in packet

Symek TNC3S in Florida. I think the Symek is a
<1200/9600 baud unit, but the 2232 can run 9600/9600 baud, I think. This
will <be fun getting them running again with WiSP :-).
< How come your uplink is limited to 1k2?
