this was exactly what I had intended the PIC chip to do with regards to "sensing" the disk type and only generating hard sector pulses for disks that did not have the extra holes in them. It would "pass" true sector holes (no sense adding any time deviation when you have the real thing with HS disks).

best regards, Steve Thatcher

I was just thinking that if we could build a sector pulse generator to 
use soft sector diskettes in the H17, it would be nice to build in a 
circuit that could detect if the diskette was hard or soft sector. If 
hard, then pass the sector pulses through. If soft, then generate the
