[TRLog] PK-232 Packet Setup - Help
Sat, 17 Mar 2001 16:58:04 -0800
I sent out a query a few weeks ago and got a few responses...but
am still having problems trying to get my PK-232 to work with TR. I have
no problem using it with LogPlus or CT but can't make it play with TR.
The result is jibberish on the screen in CTRL-B mode.
I have set the following in the .CFG file:
PACKET PORT = SERIAL 2
PACKET BAUD RATE = 2400
EIGHT BIT PACKET PORT = TRUE
I also have a few other packet preferences set but I think the
problem may be related to something I have or have not done in relation
to the above commands. Does it matter where these commands are in the
config file..i.e. - do they have to be Before or After something?
By the way when in TR and at the operating window I get NO
response with a CTRL-U command...that doesn't seem right either??? I get
the packet window with a CTRL-B but just jibbersih on the screen. I have
tried to re-cycle the PK-232 power so that it will adjust to the correct
baud rate and that doesn't seem to help either. I even wired up an
adapter to bring in pins 2,3, and 7 ONLY into the 25 pin connector on the
back of the PK-232. That didn't seem to help either. LogPlus and CT
still work fine with only those pins wired. It is a 9 pin on the
I usually operate Single Op, but like to use packet(assisted
mode) on occasion, especially when I have limited time available for a
contest...but I can't seem to make it play with TR. Would like to use TR
exclusively but I need some help????
Thanks and 73's
