Not only in networking, but in having CT read info from radio thru COM
port: if any commo problems with computer, or "Rec'd bad checksum" msgs,
first rule is SLOW DOWN THE BAUD RATE. Don't worry if the gear is supposed
to handle 28800, or 14400 or 9600, etc., slow it down anyway and it will
probably work.
