I didn't read all your message before replying.
I agree with you here and that is my main use for it.
I went to alot of trouble to program 100 freq and text for N AL.
Later I deleted those banks for more Ga. programing.
I had to go to N AL yesterday and I found the stuff in a capture
file that I had made when dumping the AR8000. A quick trip to
WINWORD to cut the data and replace the ALPHA part of the address
which selects the destination bank and 6 seconds later the scanner
was programed again for AL by merely 'uploading' the file to
the rs232 port!
NEAT!

It even sound neat, makes a zipping noise as the scanner reads
all that data at 9600 baud.  Zip ... all that tedious programing
is done.

A nice Microsoft Access database has been uploaded to the HAMNET Forum on
Compuserve. It allows for easy import and export, as well as maintenance
of AR8000 frequencies.

HELP. I would like to place this on the ar8000.homepage for anyone to grab
as well as to iniate discussion on how to use it as well as set
a standard format for exchanging files. I don't have access to compuserve
and I hate uuencode files showing up in the mail as part of a message.

My ftp is read only to prevent hackers from harming it. Does anyone
know of a ftp site that would accept this information from Paul as
anonymous FTP?

Does anyone know how to salvage a uuendcode file that eudora has broken into
four parts when it retrived it from the server since the message was too large?

Would a large uuencode file travel as an attachment to a message
rather then part of the message? That way eudora may just download
the file acess.txt or whatever which I can uudecode by either
uploading it back to the unix host and running unix uudecode or
I could find a dos uudecode somewhere.

Any ideas. Jonathan scanned a color picture of the ar8000 for you
guys but I can't get the darn thing together to place on site.
