That is exactly what you should see.
1. With a Coco3, all non autostart paks require EXEC&HE010 [ENTER]
2. The RS-232 pak menu screen is toggled on/off with the BREAK key.
3. The RS-232 pak only talks to a modem connection not an OS. Therefore
there is no OK or other prompt displayed by the pak. All pak commands
are handled on the menu screen. The other screen is used to talk to your
modem or terminal connection.
