[time-nuts] 57600 baud rate with Basic???

Hi Corby,

Do consider John's TimeLab program: Windows, free, easy to use, wonderful live plots, phase, frequency, ADEV, etc. You will be amazed. Download from http://www.ke5fx.com/timelab/readme.htm

It supports the SR620 directly as well as a number of other popular counters. For unusual instruments, there's a tab called "acquire from counter in talk-only mode" which can be used to capture serial phase or frequency data (at any baud rate). I use this feature myself; I suspect it would work for you as well.

Not only would it solve your BASIC baud rate problem but it would also give you real-time logging and plotting capability.
