I know  Im setting myself up for a lot of eye rolling and "What a  Maroon!", 
but,  ahhh.. what is the purpose of "bitbanging" at xxxx   speed. 

It means you don't need a hardware parallel-to-serial (byte to bits)  
converter, like an RS232 Pak.  Coco software does it all; you just  need the 4-pin 
cable out the back.
Software is cheaper than hardware, as the Coco's designers knew all too  well
