        YES!  The first thing you need
is something called a "T-handler".  It
is a machine language program that 
tells your computer how to talk to a
1030.  One such program was presented
in ANTIC, an ATARI-dedicated magazine,
a year or two ago.  Check with the user
groups for a magazine library.
        Another source might be the TAP
disk library if you are a member: their
disk with AMODEM71 on it includes a
program that boots in the handler built
into the 1030 itself.
        Once you have the handler in
your computer, just OPEN #x,12,x,"T:"
and you're in business.  Incidentally,
don't try to use an 850 with your 1030--it won't work.
                        Your Co-sysop

         Thanks for asking.
