When starting with the AEA PK-232, there are a few commands that may come in useful especially in the pursuit of an HF Packet Station. The first is the default configuration, which I paste into my PuTTY Command line once I've made contact with the PK-232 via Serial. This may be useful for you, or you may decide the options are different ;
