Poor little Evie...got his shorts all atwitter because those big, mean,
*** Hams wouldn't let him have the frequency, and this after HE broke in
on THEM! So what does he do? Well, the next logical thing, to him, is if
they won't let him have the frequency he will just jam everybody. That way,
you see, if he can't use it, they can't use it either.
What a twit.

If that's the reason, maybe you shoud try the digital modes.  There's
even less there - essentially zero.

Agree 110% Bill ....I operated pactor et al for about 14 years until my
PK232 bit the dust ....I should get another as I really enjoyed the digital
modes ...have been using the sound card stuff but I guess I am used to the
232.

Have you tried MMTTY for RTTY?  It's free and does a better decoding job
than almost any TNC.  Uses your soundcard and is highly configurable.

Since your PK-232 bit the dust, why not try a KAM-Plus next?  Mine is
10 years old and showing no signs of "age" whatsoever, except maybe
it's EPROM firmware version.  It's a heckuva lot smaller than a PK232,
does everything the 232 does, and I think it's a lot simpler for somone
new to digital modes to master, since it can be controlled directly from
the keyboard with a dumb-terminal or terminal emulator program (I use
QModem).

  Send it to Timewave = they revive and upgrade 232s very nicely.
  Mine was done about three years ago, when they added DSP detection
  and replaced the DCD sensitivity control (at no cost) which they
  said was damaged when I shipped it to them.

  Does it do NAVTEX and TDM ?  Does it have a Signal Analysis
  mode to determine data type, polarity, and baud rate ?

  I rum my 232 from a terminal emulator and control it directly from
  the keyboard.  I use it mainly for (non-ham) MF/HF monitoring.  Were
  I on HF (I am licensed for all ARS bands and modes but I haven't had
  a HF rig for over 25 years) I would run PACTOR.

  The fancy (and expensive) packet program runs a PK-88 on 2-m.

  I recently acquired a KAM-3 (not the plus) which I may set up
  on a second packet channel (our ARES/RACES operations here are
  heavily into packet) or use it for APRS - I haven't decided
  which.   The antenna connected to that transceiver went sour
  (20+ dB down compared to an identical antenna on the other
  mast) and the safety officer that I've been married to all
  these years has declared that I have to wait until it's drier
  and warmer to climb up on the roof (I agree).

  It's taken me a while to shift gears to the Kantronics command set
  after using the AEA for over 10 years.  It is smaller than the PK-88
  and the PK-232 but I do miss the tuning indicator and DCD sensitivity
  control that the 232 has.

  But learning new stuff is part of the fun of ham radio.

Ok Phil and Larry tnx for the info ... my 232 suffers from what I have heard
is a terminal IE DOA condition....I have tried x2 to replace the LM-317
regulator which apparently is the problem with the 232 series in that a lot
of heat is generated.  I am no design engineer but that is what I have heard
throughout  the years.  The information I received from Timewave was that
the unit is probably gone for good.  Pactor is definitely the mode I enjoyed
the most.  I have tried the sound card stuff through a home brew interface
but I think my optoisolator or there abouts is shot as there is a T-R
problem.  Again this is one of those things that I have to get around to
doing.

That lists keeps getting longer and longer....
