Re: Sinclair Retro BBS online!

What are the characters you're getting? They might give us a clue if it is a bit error or something else. My first instinct is to suspect IC25, the 1488, receiving noise from the 8302. That's where I'd start looking. I have a logic analyzer and that's the first place I'd look. Either the 1488 is no...
