So I now have the power supplies nice and tight, 15.5V and 5.2V.
This afternoon I put the last of my components on the board, then I put in the 30F4011, powered up and saw the drive 0 led lit. It lives, great!
Next I put a toggle switch on the setup and reset jumpers, connected the Ugreen RS232 - USB converter lead. I installed gtkterm and after selecting the correct port and changing configuration settings as in the manual, I did get communication with the chip
; but, strangely, the formatting is all out of alignment..? All the menu seems to be there ( I have changed the battery voltage), its just difficult to read. I'm not sure how to post a screen shot, so, it seems to be printing a new line not at the LHS but from underneath the last character of the line above.
Has anyone seen this before and what to do to get it looking like page 1 of this thread?
Anyway, its a buzz to see it live after all this time.
