I just recently got a 14.4 Fax modem, a Best Data Smart One 1442FX. Does
anybody here have one too?
My CoCo 3 is an unmodified 6809 machine, I do not have a 6309 installed
yet. I am usisng SACIA (Randy’s high speed patches installed) with /t2
xmoded to par=12 and xtp=88. I use CoNect single RS-232 port (compat.
with Tandy rs-232 pak). The is in slot one of my mpi (upgraded for CoCo 3).
I am using ed. 9 clock for the BB XT-RTC. My modem is set as follows:
Compression off and RTS/CTS hardware flow control (AT&K3%C0%M0&D2X4).
I can’t get reliable 9600 baud access at all. Calling Delphi on
the 9600 Tymnet node yeilds dropped characters (average 1 or 2 per
screen), I get the same results from local boards. I use
Supercomm At 9600, Zmodem times out and Ymodem yeilds less than 450 CPS.
This is on both Delphi and local boards. At 4800 baud the modem seems
reliable if I do not do any multi-tasking (at 2400 I can multitask
any program and still download without errors).
Any sugestions on how I can get more reliable 9600 baud? Please
do not respond “Get a 6309 with NitroOS9 (or Powerboost). I plan
to do that one of the days but can’t afford it now.
