I added that jump and it fixed the problem.  Thanks, Don!

Also, once it worked, I typed in "L 173024", then "E<space>" and got "173024
173000" like I'm supposed to, so I guess I just wasn't using the front panel

Now to get the M7800 card working so I can do TU58 stuff :)

Anyone know what speed crystal the "Northern Eng NE-6A" is on an M7800?
(i.e. does it do 9600 baud? ;)

On your 40p BERG to 25p RS232 adapter cable, make sure you bridge across
pins E-M of the 40p cable to connect the RS232 rcvr to the UART input.

If you don't, your 11/34 will be able to speak (as you show above) but
it will be deaf to any characters you send it.
