Hi Maiko,

As one of the folks who worked at a customer support tech at AEA, the best 
input I can give you is that all the programs that really worked well with 
AEA host mode performed active pollling.

Also, it seems like I recall seeing that AEA's 7.0 Pactor implementation 
isn't "binary pure" - a change fixed in the 7.1 firmware.  If I recall 
right, it's mentioned somewhere in the Airmail docs on using the PK-232 
with Airmail.

So you might have to bite the bullet and exercise the serial port a whole 
lot more...

73 and good luck!
