Windows of Opportunity
Timewave understands that dependable control software is just as
important as powerful data controllers. Software can make all the
difference in whether you find your hobby a pleasure or a tedious chore.
PC PakRatt for Windows 2.1 makes digital radio easy and powerful. First,
it runs under the easy-to-use Microsoft Windows™ format, even under
Windows '95. Second, this software was written by Timewave for Timewave
data controllers-no one else's software comes close.
Controls All Timewave TNCs
PC PakRatt for Windows 2.1 controls the whole line of Timewave data
controllers. Using Windows' multi-tasking abilities, you can have dual-,
tri-, or even quad-port operation with two full-featured Timewave data
controllers. Imagine working an AMTOR DX station through your new
DSP-232, receiving information from a local packet net on your PK-900's
port 2, and working PACTOR on port 1 of the PK-900 - all at the same
Makes Life Easier
Whatever your TNC can do, PC PakRatt for Windows 2.1 makes it easier. Run
HF or VHF packet (9600 bps or 1200 bps). Work PACTOR, AMTOR, RTTY
(Baudot/ASCII), Morse, Signal Analysis, NAVTEX, or Dumb terminal modes.
Parameters for each TNC
There are many user-definable parameter menus for each mode and TNC which
can be set up quickly and called upon when needed. All the commands you
can never remember are visually displayed in the various menus and
windows. Plus, help is available at any time. Because of the versatile
parameter menus, beginners can learn more about the commands they are
using for the first time. Advanced users will realize increased
efficiency and easier control of two TNCs. PC PakRatt is a must for
anyone who wants to unleash the full power of their Timewave TNC.
Log Windows Compatibility
That's right-PC PakRatt for Windows 2.1 is fully compatible with Log
Windows 3.0. This means you can have the powerful TNC control of PC
PakRatt, coupled with the great database, logging, and tracking features
of Log Windows 3.0.
Sending and receiving ANSI graphics in PACTOR is now possible. Send and
receive pictures like the city shown above.
Check your packet, PACTOR, and AMTOR messages using PC PakRatt's MailDrop

editing, and filing messages simple.
