    Serial port configuration

    Can any one help me with the serial configuration for link2fs? What is the format? 8,n,1? 7,o,2? I guessing at 8,n,1 but what I'm seeing on my scope doesn't make sense and I can't get my serial port to read the data coming from link2fs. Right now all I am sending is the autopilot altitude lock active "s" with the CR/LF at the end. It looks like there are 4 characters sent so I am also guessing that there is a start character. Also, it looks like it is shifting LSB first? But I am not sure. Thanks.

    Re: Serial port configuration

    Nothing fancy ,,, all the data is sent as straight ASCII
    and the settings are ,,,,
    Baudrate,n,8,1

    Cr/Lf at the end of each "burst"

    Re: Serial port configuration

    Thanks Jim....my serial cards was messed up...rather than 9600 baud (just for testing), it was spitting out the data at 11.2K baud....!!!! Even though setting was for 9600. Made my head ache. If it wasn't for Hyperterm and my digital scope I would have never figured it out. Your program is fantastic! Great work!
