The ‘stty’ line above is from Adafruit’s “how to” page.  For the chip on the Adafruit Hat, the above ‘stty’ is REQUIRED (not necessarily the speed)), or you will not get reliable output from a ‘cat’ statement.

I fought with logic level converters for days (weeks?) until I realized that I had to properly set the device with ‘stty’ to get sane tty output. I was trying to fix hardware, when it was the hardware...
