I bought a Sprint-2 a while ago. It took a while before I got around to
wiring things up but I recently did. After the wires were all in the
right place (including to my TEKK KS-900), I sat down in my shack and
starting looking for how to tune things up. After a short while of thumbing
thru the book, I looked up and saw packets on the screen. I issued a
connect, and it worked fine, first time!
Score 1 for PacComm (and TEKK) in the "plug-n-play" category.
