If you google around you will find some folks that have made use of

pulls out the TTL serial pins from the CPU. You will still need to add
circuitry to convert to/from RS-232 levels.
>Or tried compiling flgidi or anyhting like that, soundcard TNC, etc?Dunno why you couldn't do that, but I haven't. Still, do NOT expect
to get the FLdigi screen to appear on your 320x240 Z2. To be effective
I suspect it would have to be used remotely from a PC running XWindows
>One last thing...any sources for 2.4Ghz Yagis you might want to share?Dunno why you're asking me all these questions when a simple google will
get you more than I can tell you. I don't use Yagis on 2.4-GHz but I've
seen the MFJ yagi (MFJ-1800) used with great results although it's a
bit on the flimsy side. You can get this yagi in an enclosure but for
half that price you can get a Rootenna that has the same gain and is FAR
sturdier. I've been using Rootennas (flat panel, directional antennas)
with my WRT54G's since the 15-dBi models are water-tight and will hold
the WRT54G, case and all. Try some of the wireless distributors --
Titan Wireless down in Round Rock, TX to name one -- and see what they
have to offer.
