I want to hook my Apple II up to my paper tape punch which runs at 600 or 1200
Baud.

I have a 1978 apple communications card and need to make the mod for higher speed rates.

Thanks,
Corey

The schematics can be found online. It looks like a couple of 74161s are used to divide down the 1 MHz system clock to make up the baud rate clock. I don't have time to do all the math, but if you change the preset settings on the 74161s, you change the baud rate.
