 Change the message queue parameter of the QPADEVnnnn devices to a user created
one, then set up a program to wait for messages on that Q that the devices were
varied off and vary them back on.

 If your OS is too old for the message Q parameter (Prior V4R3 I think) then you
can use QSYSOPR (irritates your operators cause the Q is locked) or QSYSMSG
(better but do something beside throw away the important messages that also go

 I might be able to get you a copy of a program that does this from one of my
contacts who used to have 200 ASCII WSC attached modems and surprisingly he had
this problem quite frequently! <bg>
