No, it does NOT need the sync vector.  I tried to reply to this via the 
dsp2232 reflector, but for some reason, it doesn't recognize me for sending 
any more, though I still receive.

At any rate, what the DSP-2232 is missing are the two CRCC's at the end of 
the 512 byte data block.  Thus, the blocks are actually 514 bytes long, and 
the DSP-2232 grabs only the first 512.  Therefore, there is no way to tell 
if the block is corrupted.  This was a problem in the past with the DSP-12, 
but Bent Bagger updated the code.  An update for the DSP-2232 would be nice 
as well.

P3T.exe will work with the DSP-2232 in the current mode but the modem type 
must be set to "512" instead of "514"... and all of the blocks will be 
marked as "failed" in their logging.
