MFJ 1270B WARNING !!!
After many years of strange flow control problems between my computer and my TNC i just discover a construction bug. It seems that the RTS is connectect to pin 20 in RS232 connector ( DTR ) I should be pin 4 instead. Cutting the folie and a jumper solved the problem.
It´s nice to be able to run N6TR wit full RS232 cable again. As well as other softwares
( my TNC is a very old on and i´m sure this is corrected in newer models)
Weather you can find this error on other old TNC TAPR modems i don´t know but it´s easy to check if you
think the flow control sucks !
