John, are your LPT ports "bi-directional?" We recently discovered
that the -AC (antenna control) function does not work if the parallel
port is configured as bi-directional. You might want to experiment
with this, and let us know.
Ken is aware of the problem with -AC and bi-directional LPTs, but I
don't know if he has a solution cooked yet.
