Then Clark, W9CD made the  mo-
dification  and was pleased with the results. Consequently, I  bought  from
Radio  Shack 6 each 1 MF tantalum capacitors ("condensers" to Old  Timers),
and  mounted  them on the bottom of the board, with the  shortest  possible
leads in the positions described above. The results are OUTSTANDING!!! RTTY
signals  I  could not copy before are now perfect copy, even when  you  can
barely see the traces on the scope. ARQ links, which could not be made  be-
fore,  now flow smoothly. The only thing I don't know if the mod will  work
if the latest version of the PK232 firmware upgrade is not installed, but I
would think that it will. Give it a try and you will be pleasantly  surpri-
sed. 73 AND GL de John, TG9VT! ………….                               
P.S.: The part number for the referenced capacitors is:                    
Radio Shack # 272-1434, 1 MFD 35 Volts (Tantalum). Cost $ .59 each.
