Ahhh...I hadn't seen Ed's reply before I sent mine.

I am pretty sure his suggestion is better because you can get dual UART
Atmel chips for much cheaper than dual UART PICs.  Coding a soft UART on the
PIC that works reliably is much trickier than the couple of bucks you will
save, just to make up for the fact that there aren't any cheap dual UART PIC

Ed's drumbeat of "you can do it all with an AVR" is sinking into my
brain.....The more I listen to him, the more I think I will probably be
defecting from PIC's to AVRs soon.

That depends on how much data the 19200 end sends.  If it is bursty such
that it is idle at least 50% of the time, this should be doable with any
micro that has more than one UART.  I prefer AVR's, mostly because of the
high quality free C compiler (gcc).  The code for this would be pretty
