If the G3RUH modem can push 38.4K BPS or 57.6K BPS, with a
PacComm SPRINT-2 packet controller, then I feel sure that radios like
the D4-10 and TEKKs could be modified to work with them...at least I
would hope they might be.
I run 19.2K Baud with a PI2 card and D4-10 which is soooooo much
better than 1200 baud but running 57.6K might mean you could run
Mosaic over ham frequencies or at least FTP down a file in a *flash*.
Does anyone know if PacComm is reachable via the Internet? Brian
Lantz, do you know?
