 All of the above modems only support half duplex communications. However,
 the driver supports the KISS (see below) fullduplex command. It then simply

 about DCD, i.e. it starts to send even if there's someone else on the channel.

 Configuring the driver

 modems it should access at which ports. This can be done with the setbaycom

 Hardware DCD versus Software DCD
+================================
 
 To avoid collisions on the air, the driver must know when the channel is

 utilise a software DCD algorithm (options=1) or use a DCD signal from
 the hardware (options=0).
