Excellent!  The 'T' command caused it to start sending ASCII strings 
like this:

    224 18:39:33  TZ=00
    224 18:40:37  TZ=00
    224 18:41:43  TZ=00

It is set to 1200 8n2 though so I still need to adjust the switches. 
I'm not physically at the unit at the moment but I'll open it up when I 
get to where it is located.

Thanks, Philip
