    I now have my ssb and Pactor IIe all hooked up and when I went to install
    the terminal software (PlusTerm ), I found that it was DOS version and won't
    run on my Win2k OS..

    I contacted SCS and ask for a recommendation and they agreed that I should
    get a Windows Terminal program. However they didn't recommend any..

    I'm not sure of what will be the best and simplest for me.. I'm not a ham
    yet and typically any of this stuff, is written for and by hams. At the risk
    of offending our resident Hams, let's just say the ones I have looked at are
    complex to the extreme. (Lotta stuff for contests, etc.) Much like ham
    transievers, more complicated that necessary to send and recieve email.

    The one program that seems to be promoted on one of the Pactor sites is
    EasyTerm for Windows. The info and representations would indicate it has
    complex features, but I'm wondering if it might still be the best..

    I can't tell from what I read if it can also be used to control the
    transciever as well as the Pactor modem. My new Icom 710mkII has that
    capability so would like to find a combine program if possible.

    What are the rest of the "I Just Wanna Do Email and Weather" skippers
    using??

  2. I think they both use the same software.

  3. Steve,
    Just a reminder of what I said when I sold you the unit. You don't need to
    program anything with the software. Just download and install Sailmail. It
    has it's own terminal emulation program imbedded in it. Don't reinvent the
    wheel.
