Long alas I got a borrowed PK-232MBX packet controller working with the computer last night. Its running a 31 OCT 1989 firmware, and if I end up using it much I'll likely update it or acquire a PK-900. Anyways, I've been using PuTTY to connect to it. Seems to do at least most of what I tell it to, but my understanding of it is extremely limited. I changed my callsign, turned VHF on/off, etc. Now, how do I get it to do anything? I see there are packet controller programs out there, but many are MS-DOS, etc. I suppose I could run a DOS terminal and try to use that to run the controller. Timewave had some proprietary software, long gone I suppose, but not sure if its compatible with WinXP, Win7, etc. I'd be tempted also to try a Linux distro, if there's something that works well in that. I'd like this to be a APRS setup and digi-peater, and at least do some basic packet check-ins on the county club server. Maybe NAVTEX, a weather setup, etc. But I don't know what to use to run this box other than PuTTY, and I know about zero commands for it. Ideas?
