Re: YAM and other Packet modems



Hi Helmut,
    Yes I have noticed that ham software tends to be writen for the cheapest
Operating Systems. I thought I would like to try packet but I am not
prepared to set up another OS just to run it so if I can't find the right
drivers or write them, then I will live without packet. I have tried to run
the AGW Packet Engine in soundcard mode but it just "abnormally shuts down".
Not much joy in that.

    Thankyou for you comments, it all helps to build up "the picture" for
me.

Regards,
Murray Peterson
