Me again, still yes, I'm very interested - I've got my KSR-28 all warmed up in anticipation!
I'll follow up with you later from home to learn more about your RTTY expriences.

This is sort of a cross-cultural offering - ham radio and computers - 
both involving Heathkit.

Way back in the dim ages (circa 1980), Howard Nurse, W6LLO (the son of 
Dave Nurse who was President of Heathkit at that time), developed ham 
related software packages for the H-89 (and H-8) and it's ilk. They ran 
on HDOS and allowed sending and receiving CW (CW89) and RTTY using your 
computer and your ham radio receiver/transmitter. I found one of these 
packages in my bookcase - it has the CommSoft binder, the manuals and 
the software on disk (hard sectored, I think).

An interesting package. If anyone is interested, please drop me an 
email. The cost will be $15 for everything and I'll cover shipping 
costs (at least to US locations).
