[TRLog] footswitch and packet cluster problem
Thu, 1 Feb 2001 20:41:52 -0500
I didn't get any responses that answered the questions, so I'm re-posting
and hoping for some help. Thanks in advance!
I am using a dedicated 486 machine with dos version 6.
I have my footswitch on LPT1, which I wired onto the un-used pins inside my
top ten band decoder. Have the footswitch set to mimic alt D dupe check.
When I engage the footswitch it takes several moments before the task shows
on the screen. Sometimes I have to hit it a few times or hold it to get the
action. In testing, this occurs both with or without the pull-up resistor
wired to pin 14. Voltage on pin 14 is 5 v, and voltage on pin 15 is 5v.
For the packet port, I have a KPC3plus on serial 4. I am able to see the
kantronics "turn on" info when I set the baud at 1200. But not all the
letters what they should be, and the text is offset abnormally staggered
towards the right (ie. not in a nice column). This occurs whether I use the
7 bit or eight bit setting.
Any ideas on either problem greatly appreciated.
