It works very well, have had "zero" problems with it!!

>Dave, can you remember how old this code is?  Circa 1995 / 1996 ?

Yes, it was 1996....

to look for it today, to send it to him with your permission!!  Oh yes, I 
have it,
I'll dig it out today, and send it to both you and John.  I THINK I have a 
of my control box to select EL changes, but it is really a simple thing 
with a switch
to select the pin on the parallel port...

Nice to see some interest again, and as AO40 develops I am sure it will be very
useful.  We have dozens of people in San Diego, that are interested in 40, 
but when
they get to the part about a ~$500 rotor system their interest wanes...

I'll also dig out the group that expressed previous interest, and let them 
know it
is being revived.  Good Show, Chris!!

Soon as the honey-doos are done I'll get it on the way!!
