One does not need a Rascal for RTTY with the Orion. one can use the cables
that came with Orion for RTTY direct to the computer. I have done exactly
that for all the years I have had my Orions 565, mostly CW but MixW3 will do
all modes just about with the above cable connections to computer.

Subject: [TenTec] RASCAL interface and the Orion 565
Hi Guys, I am looking for someone who has interface the 'Rascal' to the 565.
My friend is the one that has the 565 and wants to get on RTTY.
The Rascal Interface with it custom cable for the 565 seems to do just want
BUT He uses PIN3 of the Orion II 8 pin I/O connector for CW Keying. The
uses that pin for PTT.
It seems that the Orion would be smart enough for use PIN 3 for PTT when in
and Pin 3 for CW keying when in CW without anything else?
Since I don't have the rig, maybe someone has an answer to this question.
Thanks Joe K0BX
