Those are correct.

I long ago pulled the battery from my PK-232, so if that is the default
is why I don't recall ever setting that (either that, or I need more tea
autobauding it (getting the PK-232 to recognize data rate to computer), I
set EAS ON (echo as sent) & WORD (wordout, send word when completed
instead each character as soon as received from computer) ON. The only other
one I know of now is for WAE RTTY - set CWID $00, otherwise when you send
QTCs the PK-232 will also include a CW ID with each line.

One of Rich's previous suggestions is quite important, IMHO: start your QSL
MESSAGE with an @ as CALL OKAY NOW MESSAGE doesn't work in RTTY
