Have you used them?
Have you used them? And is there actually any terminal software that actually works at 9600 bits per second for the Commodore 64? What protocols work at 9600 bps? Punter? Xmodem? Xmodem CRC? I don't think there is enough memory for zmodem on the C-64 unless it has one of those expansions. Somewhere I remember that 9600 Baud is a misnomer?

I myself have a CMD Turbo232 and a Hamill SwiftLink clone.

Novaterm 9.6c and and the harder-to-find Miniterm

I suggest that you read up on Novaterm (because I use a C128 in C128 mode with Desterm 2.01).
