Gear: Yaesu 757 GX with FIF-232C. I have a WIN 7 Computer and another with Linux which I could reload win 98. I do not have the manuals for the Radio gear. I am wanting to work digital modes within the limitations of the gear. I am planning to use a Kantronics KPC-3+ for the TNC and RMS express. I know the rig control is primitive but have no clue as to the programs, in basic I presume, that are required or if it is even possible to this with what I have. I know there have to be some gray beards out there that could help once they stop laughing. I ran my 8086/8087 machine until 1998 because all the software was my own coding. Then I met win 98 what a learning curve that was. So my Radio and CAT hearken back to that era. I'm a bit rusty now but willing to give it a go. Perhaps someday I'll be able to afford newer gear but for now finances and nostalgia keep me where I am.
