I'm using 57,600 for the baud on mine.  

Be sure you also have the correct "Downlink Radio Port" - I'm using "4"
on my Uni_Trac.  

Finally make sure the Downlink Mode is correct - example "USB,6K" or
"FM,15K" etc.

If I recall the first time you successfully use the PCR-1000 the
Uni_Trac will present the "EPROM backup statement".

Also be sure to get the newest Uni_Trac 2003 version, as the volume was
muted initially on the older releases - if you have an older version
just move the software volume control manually on the passes.
