On a visit to Holland in mid 1994, G1PLT asked Rob on my behalf about
this very matter, he said.  I had previously outlined the desirability
of using Rob's excellent code as described in the SCC.TXT file to which
you refer

In particular the following features would be of great benefit to those
uf us interested in improving those parts of the UK Amatuer Radio IP network
that use the Opto-PC-SCC card designed by PA0HZP. (nearly a whole region)

timer ticker
escc support
test mode

Although  I have a copy of PE1CHL Net 920420 with the features present
in the exe, the software itself cannot be used in the radio borne IP
environment that has developed locally :-(

May I  add to this question by asking whether anyone is aware of
any particular speed limitation on ports, when using the code in
a NOS on a PC 386/486 (16MHz upwards) driving HDLC cards.

Thank You
