James,

  Nope, Sportster will NOT do SYNC.  Best bet is the AS/400 Options modem
(multitech).  More $$'s than the sportster but it flat works.  

  If you are stuck on USR the Courier series should work but for my money I'd 
get
the IBM or it's cousin the Multitech.

  They key (and this was mentioned by several during this thread) is that you
need support for bit mode V.25bis sync dialing.
