if you give us the protocol of data transfer someone could
use a software that randomly generate data to test winsdr.
I could apply it for my serial card and test it.
I collected a bit of experience in serial comm and seismic recording
feel free to use my support.
Unfortunately at moment i have no isa card here to use like you suggest.
