The RS232 Pak's UART has a fixed set of baud rates. Where the bitbanger
port is under direct control of the CoCo's cpu.
The UART can do: 50, 75, 109.92, 134.58, 150, 300, 600, 1200, 1800,
2400, 3600, 4800, 7200, 9600 and 19,200 bits per second. Also it has a
special 16x external clock mode. Does any know what this comes out to be
in the RS232 Pak?
In a tight loop, the CoCo can run the bitbanger port at 115,200 bits per
