QUESTION ABOUT CONTROLING THE OUTPUT OF THE 1030 MODEM...
CAN THE LENGTH OF THE DATA BIT USED IN COMMUNICATING BE
CONTROLED?
I AM TRYING TO CONTACT THE MAINFRAME (IBM 3081) AT CSU WITH 
A PROGRAM CALLED VT100.  THE MAIN FRAME CONECTION REQUIRES
7 DATA BITS, TWO STOP BITS AT EVEN PARITY. IS THIS POSSIBLE?

        Try booting your modem/computer
without a terminal program on your disk
or with a generic program such as
1030 EXPRESS.  While I can't speek for
the mainframe, I had a lot of success
talking to the PDP-11 that way.
        If that doesn't work, try a 
good manual on Atari RS-232 handlers 
and use the data with the 1030's T:
device code.  (If that sounds confusing
it's because I am not a modem expert.)

           Thanks for asking.
