Scott, There would be no idle times.

So how does RTTY work then ?

My grandfather used to run a PLL on one tone and anything else was the other

See the bit here on Asynchronous vs. Synchronous transmission:


AX.25 uses bit-stuffing to make sure there are always enough transitions to
keep the receiver synchronized.  Idle periods of any length will cause the
receiver and transmitter to lose sync, and you'll need a certain number of
transitions to regain it.  I think you can use a flip-flop to do Manchester
encoding, which should work better... but I wouldn't expect to be able to
feed unprocessed async serial into a MX614 and be able to recover anything

If I want to send RS232 data across a voice channel, what is stopping me
using MX614 ?

No checksum, not interested, no flags, no ax25 not interested, just wanna
send data.

Comments ?
