I have never tinkered with spooled files to stream files, but here's a quick
program that should generate all the characters in your CCSID except x'00':

h/copy qrpglesrc,stdhspec                              
h bnddir('QC2LE')                                      
 * dbgview(*list)                                      
fQSysPrt   O    F  132        Printer OflInd(*InOF)    
d prtHex          s              2                     
d                 ds                                   
d  dsNum                  1      2i 0                  
d  dsChar                 2      2                     
d H2C             pr                  extProc('cvthc') 
d                                 *   value            
d                                 *   value            
d                               10I 0 value            
c                   for       dsNum = 1 to 255         
c                   callp     H2C(%addr(prtHex):       
c                                 %addr(dsChar): 
c                                 2)             
c                   except    DoPrint            
c                   endfor                       
c                   eval      *InLR=*On          
oQSysPrt   E            DoPrint        1         
o                       prtHex                   
o                       dsChar           +   2
