Originally released as Data Highway™ in 1985 in Europe, Antelope is the Freeware version of this venerable telecommunications program. Antelope is an integrated communications program running under the DOS 3.3 disk operating system for the Apple ][, //e, and //c computers. When used in conjunction with a suitable serial interface and modem, it will allow you to use your Apple computer as a general ASCII Communications or Viewdata Terminal.

Antelope enables the access to bulletin boards and public data networks, and systems which utilise the DEC VT100 standard. Antelope’s user-to-user communication capability is exceptional, and the user friendliness of the program is unrivalled.

Antelope supports transmission of file transfers either by spooling, Xon/Xoff flow control, or by Xmodem protocol. It also has a large storage buffer to capture and preserve incoming and outgoing data. There are a host of features which may be configured to individual user requirements. The configuration of the program is saved to a disk file, and is restored the next time the program is run.
