In answer to Dick Mead's inquiry about the HAPN modems; HAPN can
be reached at the following address:
Box 4466, Station D,
HAPN also has a phone number, but as I'm not in the habit of
making international phone calls, I don't have it. Perhaps someone
else in the tcp-group can provide it.
A group of us here in Bloomington, Indiana bought 8 of the HAPN-T
modem kits with an eye to putting our TCP/IP efforts on faster ground.
Purchased as a package of 8 kits we got a $3.00 discount. Cost of the
kit is normally $48.00 (American).
The kit consists of the HAPN 4800 modem PC board, a very clear
set of instructions, and *ALMOST* all of the parts to build the modem.
My kit was missing C-13, a 0.15 mfd capacitor, used in the carrier
detect section of the circuit. Attempts to find this capacitor
locally proved fruitless. I wrote HAPN on 12-28-88 requesting they
send me C-13, but to date I've not heard from them. However, in the
interim I have found 2 other kits from this group purchase were also
missing C-13. There may have been others lacking C-13, but I haven't
had a chance to talk to everyone.
As this modem is clearly well designed, the PC board well made
and without defects, and the instructions unambiguous, it is a shame
that for lack of 1 capacitor that we sit here with partially completed
modems. Hopefully the packaging of the kits in this group is an
isolated incident and not indicative of a larger problem.
Impatiently awaiting my C-13,
