[App_rpt-users] Icom 706 Remote Base

While I'm not using an 706, but a Syntor X with an XCAT here's the
related stuff in my rpt.conf
(gleaned mostly from an archived Tom Sawyer post that I found in a
Google search)

Yes, the CIV address is in decimal.

When I used to mess with my 706mkIIg with Ham Radio Deluxe, the
serial/CIV level converter 
I used needed to have one of the handshake leads forced on to power the
interface. I want to say DTR, but not sure.
If that's the case I also remember seeing a way to set a ttyS to do
that. But again, memory fails me as to the command (setserial ?).
