OK, I'm pretty good at these things (Ham since I was 17 y.o.), but I'm confused over this PActor
I just got through installing the usual kit ICOM
802 / SCS PTC-IIpro / AT-140.
I'm using Airlink 3 as the client s/w. Been able to both send and receive mails using P2 over Winlink 2K
The SCS modem
declares that it has the Pro software
but no license
for P3, then says it has "20 trial connects".
I just tried to purchase
the P3 upgrade from the SCS website and was pretty dissappointed with the experience. I expected to pay my (many) $$$ and get an immediate unlock code by e-mail. Instead the website took my money
plus EUR 35 for 'Shipping' - Sent a mail to SCS and waiting for the reply.
Meanwhile .... I'm trying to work out how to kick the thing into P3 mode with my '20 free connects'. There's talk in the SCS manual about having to set the TOnes parameter to a figure >0 (suggests 4) otherwise P3 won't work. Does this have to be done manually or does Airlink3 issue these commands on your behalf ?
Anyone here know wether this is as simple as just putting in the License
code (when I get it) ?
