I don't think that will work, Paul.  The Z3801 is designed for the VT 
receiver and uses commands that are not supported by the M12 or the 
SSR.  I believe there has been discussion on this in the past.

Now, maybe with a bit of arm twisting, whining and grovelling we could 
get Synergy to write an emulator for the VT instead of the M12.  Since 
they've already done the M12, it might not be a lot of extra work to do 
the VT.  Of course, an adapter board would be required to deal with the 
physical differences.  I don't know if they already have one.
